Let's keep the county government budget in check

Pittsboro, NC - With each passing day, the debt clock in our country is increasing at a frightening rate. From our federal government down to our state and local governments, it is imperative that our government rein in it's out-of-control spending. Just as private citizens are cutting back in their own budgets, so must our government. This is why I support the five percent cut in the Chatham County budget.

An example of an excellent way to cut needless spending is to reduce the number of days that the polls are open and staffed here in Chatham County. A one week voting period would certainly give ample time for our citizens to vote.

Another issue that needs addressing is same day registration. I oppose same day registration because I feel it makes it easier for individuals to commit voter fraud. Our elections should be conducted in such a manner that their integrity is never questioned.
