1. Eminent Domain & Our Future
When local leaders tried to strike more BACK DOOR DEALS with Jim Black and the NC Department of Transportation, John Rhodes stopped them cold. Why would he say no to the politicians in his own district? Because what they were attempting to do was wrong. They wanted land at a cheap price so they tried to circumvent reason and impose eminent domain on unsuspecting average taxpayers. John Rhodes said NO and stood by his guns to keep our towns from becoming mini-dictatorships with UNBRIDLED POWER.
John is willing to listen to local elected officials and is interested in hearing their ideas. Every time local government presents ideas to John that he rejects, they have a consistent theme that must be opposed: They either raises taxes on the public or seek to create an "end run" around existing law or the Constitution.
Every proposal brought to John Rhodes by town officials has attempted to take power out of the citizens hands and relinquish it to the town board in hopes they will protect citizens' rights. Clearly, the towns wanted to just grab land at the cost of your friends and neighbors. That is why John will not support their resolutions. John will stand in the gap to protect your freedoms.
RHODES WORKS FOR REFORM
John Rhodes is FOR PROGRESS but not at any cost. John Rhodes works for TAXPAYERS and FAMILIES FIRST. The power hungry special interests who walk the halls of Raleigh and other political bodies will have no choice but to face him when they try to secretly undermine YOUR FREDOMS and impose higher taxes on your family.
When Mr. Smith went to Washington he didn't do so to bend to what other politicians told him to do. He went to represent the taxpayers. John Rhodes goes to Raleigh to do the same and has a rock solid record of defending taxpayers.
What Price Honesty and Integrity?
Call him idealistic, but when John Rhodes goes to Raleigh, he does so to REPRESENT YOU, regardless of what others may throw at him. Our founding fathers faced off with our foreign overseers and a new nation was born. John Rhodes serves with courage and integrity.
John Rhodes believes that by continuing his own efforts and working with his colleagues in the House we can take back our state, balance the budget, eliminate waste and corruption and clear the path for a new generation to live more affordably, in a healthy, growing economy. One that supports excellent schools and provides opportunities for ALL CITIZENS.
