Surry and Wilkes Counties need representatives in the legislature that have vision and motivation to bring jobs, education, and other opportunities back to our area.
Elect John Wiles to the North Carolina House of Representatives in 2014 to help bring common sense back to government in Raleigh.
Why am I running?
I'm running for the North Carolina House of Representatives because I know that the best interests of my fellow citizens of Surry and Wilkes Counties are being all but ignored. I want to go to Raleigh and work hard for the benefit of everyone up here in my favorite place on Earth. We live in a beautiful, peaceful place that's great for raising families and living our lives on our own terms instead of running rat races in the big cities.
But more and more, living our lives on our own terms means moving away from here to find decent work, schools, and other amenities. Blue collar jobs have migrated away from here, some to other cities, some to other countries or even continents. It's time to stop the losses and bring investment back home through infrastructure and educational improvements. That's why I want to go to Raleigh and fight to keep Surry and Wilkes Counties the vibrant places that they ought to be.
Good public policy can do that, but the folks down there now seem bent on intruding on peoples lives and redirecting tax dollars to the benefit of the special interests to bother with what's good for rural North Carolina. I'm saying "no more". No more will I stand on the sidelines and wring my hands and hope someone does the right thing--I'm going to fight to get elected, and then I'm going to fight to do what's right for my fellow North Carolinians.
I hope with all my heart you'll help me. Help with your actions, help with your contributions, and help with your votes on election day!
What is District 90?
Each member of the North Carolina House of Representatives is elected from one of the 120 districts in our great State. Some districts pretty much equate to a county, city, or other easily identifiable geographic area and some do not. Our district, 90, falls in the first group for the most part.
If you live in Surry County, you live in District 90. If you live in Wilkes county it's a bit more difficult to pin down because the line follows a long list of roads and creeks to carve out a corner of the county. In rough terms, from Klondike Road Extension west of the Surry/Wilkes line to where Byrd Road gets close to Bugaboo Creek and then north to Roaring Gap, then you live in District 90.
Since that explanation is very rough, please check out this NC Legislature web page that can tell you exactly how it's laid out and whether you are in it.
Help get the word out!
Every single vote counts. That's what it's so important for you to Like and Share the message so the word gets out to as many voters as possible. People need to hear what I'm about and where I stand on the issues so they can understand why a vote for me is a vote for their own best interests.
