My opponent has voted time and time again to give tax breaks to the wealthy and out of state corporations, all while he’s raised your taxes on everything from movie tickets, boat registrations and shot gun shells. Read the list below!
Jim Davis is lying about your taxes. I’ve responded below with a special message that reminds him there are no yachts in these mountains.
“Twenty years of my career in education were as a state employee. I always appreciated this professional group who worked tirelessly to protect our rights and am honored that they are placing their confidence in me. I will always stand on the side of our state employees because I was one and I know from experience that we need an educated, healthy workforce to move North Carolina forward again.”
Jane Hipps, candidate for NC Senate District 50, is proud to announce that she has been endorsed by the North Carolina Sierra Club. One of Jane’s greatest priorities is protecting and preserving our environment and she is honored to receive this endorsement.
“For too long our western counties have had representatives that don’t care about protecting our environment. It is time for a change in Raleigh. Jane Hipps will represent our Western North Carolina values by protecting the mountains and streams that make our region special and contribute so much to our economy. The Sierra Club is proud to endorse Jane in her race for Senate District 50,” said Ken Brame, Western North Carolina Sierra Club leader.
Hipps, a farmer and former Science Educator, is running for the NC State Senate against Sen. Jim Davis, who co-sponsored the Fracking Bill and continues to put the health and safety of our children at risk.
“I’m proud to stand for mountain values that protect our environment. We learned to swim in these waters. We taught our children how to fish in these waters. We were baptized in these waters,” said Jane Hipps.
A quick shoutout to the Hiwassee River Watershed Coalition for their 20+ years of work protecting and preserving the water quality in our creeks, lakes and rivers that flow into the Hiwassee River. If you’ve ever been swimming in Lake Chatuge, fishing in Brasstown Creek, tubing down the Tusquittee, caught a striper on Nottely, or dipped your toes in the icy waters of Fires Creek, you’ve been a beneficiary of all the hard work accomplished by the Coalition.
From the Valley River down to Nottely, from Shooting Creek to Persimmon, it remains our sacred responsibility to take care of our watersheds. Many thanks to Callie, Tony, and Amanda and the countless volunteers who have dedicated their time and energy to this endeavor, and congratulations to Nancy Troxler who won the Holman Volunteer Award last night.
