By the People--Citizens Helping Government

 ---that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom--and that the government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth.
                                                         -- Abraham Lincoln, November 1863

These words were spoken by one of our great leaders.  He understood that the government is by the people and for the people, not the politicians.  Too often we have turned over our government to the politicians, this is a recipe for disaster.  As President Lincoln told us that a government by the people will not perish, but a government that is void of the people's input will suffer.

We the people are the employers. The elected officials work for us, we are their bosses.  We can hire them and we can fire them but the responsibility for running our state rests with the people
You have put in office. You must take an active role in your government.  You must care and be involved.

After I am elected one of my first acts will be to establish  citizen groups.   These groups will be composed of 8-10 people just like you and me.  They will serve as volunteers for a period of 60 days.  They will set  their own schedules and decide where they will work out of and how often they meet will be decided by them.  They will look at various parts of our state government and make recommendations directly to me as to how we can change the government to better support the people.  You will be involved. These groups will have the  freedom to look at any part or office of state government.  They will have access to all of state government and will answer only to me.  At the end of the 60 days they will report their findings to me and we will act on their good recommendations.   After 60 days more groups will be appointed and the process will continue.

If You would like to be a part of one of these groups email me and You can become a part of the continuous improvement we plan for North Carolina.
