Vote Trevor Fuller for
County Commissioner at Large!
As County Commissioner you meet many people. There are those who question whether the American Dream is still alive in our time. They question whether it is possible to deliver on the promise we make to one another that if you work hard, you can make it. There are those who doubt whether it is possible any longer to make access to economic opportunity real for all. As County Commissioner I believe in our enduring covenant to be each other’s keepers, because we have demonstrated again and again the re-affirming power of our “can-do” spirit, I’m running for re-election as a County Commissioner at large because I say “YES,” the American Dream is still alive, and I will ensure that we renew its promise in Mecklenburg County! As the County Commissioner, I am committed to providing vision about how to bring economic opportunity to everyone in our county, no matter who you are or where you live. To do this, I will take bold action in three major areas: education, job creation, and healthcare.
When the history of our time is written, what will they say about the decisions we have made? Will they say that we shrunk from the challenges of our time? Or will they say that we answered the call, that we seized the opportunity to make our community soar?
We always love a challenge, and we refuse to be defeated. Our way is to embrace our opportunities. I believe history will show that we did what we needed to do to make our place on this earth a shining city on a hill, the greatest place to live, learn, work, and recreate.
God bless you, and God bless Mecklenburg County.
Thank you very much.
The best economic development tool is a job. If a person has a job, that means he or she can support a family and buy goods and services in the economy, which helps everybody. After all, businesses need customers who have money to buy their products and services. When our people have jobs, it also means that they do not need government assistance, which reduces the tax burden for all of us. Right now, nearly 250,000 people in Mecklenburg County receive some assistance from our Department of Social Services. This is unsustainable. We need to focus our efforts on reducing this level of need in our community.But it’s more than just having a job, we need to make sure that people have jobs that provide a living wage. Too many of us have jobs and are trying to make ends meet, but our jobs do not pay enough. This is why I believe the county can play a key role in bridging this gap…not by giving a hand out, but by offering a hand up. We need to help create the conditions and the opportunities for people to have living wages.
This is directly linked to the effort to bring economic opportunity to all.
