Senator Richard Burr will be speaking at the weekly Republican luncheon on Monday, Oct 12th at Golden Corral on Stratford Rd (Winston-Salem). The luncheon starts at noon but I recommend you get there 20-30 minutes in advance.
WINSTON-SALEM –The Republican Candidates for Winston-Salem City Council will sign an agreement based on economic growth and limited government called “The Contract with Winston-Salem” on Monday October 12th at Golden Corral Restaurant at 180 Hanes Mall Circle. The event will begin at noon.
The issues addressed within the Contract include the Baseball Stadium; our local economy; forced annexation; wasteful spending and taxes; and several other issues. The signers will be Ted Shipley from the Southwest Ward; Peter Sorensen from the Northwest Ward; John Hopkins from the North Ward; Claudia Shivers from the Northeast Ward; and Chuck Woolard from the Southeast Ward.
Copies of the Contract will be distributed, during the meeting, and a new website promoting it will be launched the same day.
Nathan Tabor, chairman of the Forsyth County Republican Party, said that the city’s current economic situation calls for the Contract with Winston-Salem.
“Tough economic times call for strong leadership,” Tabor said. “The Contract with Winston-Salem exhibits the type of leadership the city desperately needs.”
Tabor also said that he believes the Contract will have a broad base of support.
“This contract isn’t about republicans and democrats,” he said. “The Contract is about the difference between common-sense government and an out-of-control city council. And hard-working families deserve a city council that knows what it means to balance a budget and live with their means.”
