[Dec. 19, 2011] Cathy Wright (R-Chatham County) announced that she will run for the open seat in House District 54, which now includes all of Chatham County and parts of Lee County. Wright ran for the State House in 2010. “I earned 43% of the vote against a 30-year, well-entrenched legislator, the former Speaker Joe Hackney. With new voting district lines, the House district is now a more favorable place for a conservative win, and I plan to win.” Wright currently serves as the Chair of the Chatham County Republican Party.

[Feb. 13, 2010] Brian Bock has launched his bid to unseat George Lucier in District 3. On Monday, February 8, Bock filed his Notice of Candidacy at the Chatham County Board of Elections. Bock decided to run for County Commissioner “because the actions and proposals of the current county leadership are raising our taxes, trampling on our property rights, and spending our tax dollars on unnecessary pet projects in a time of severe recession. The current and proposed policies create an environment that is hostile to job creation and retention. They are policies that will scare off, rather than attract new businesses to Chatham County.”

Time for Chatham County commissioners to get off the spending bus and on the school busTime for Chatham County commissioners to get off the spending bus and on the school bus
[Jun. 1, 2009] During one of the worst recessions in decades, the county should not propose a budget that significantly increases the cost of government and cuts education. We all have to prioritize between "wants" and "needs". The Board of Commissioners should do the same. Chatham County has revenues 19% higher than 2002 adjusted for inflation and population growth. We have plenty of revenue, the county needs to control it's spending.
