Running Against the Architect of Amendment One by Jason Wunsch Democratic Candidate N.C House District 37
Many tears have been shed over Tuesday's passage of Amendment One in North Carolina. I would argue these tears have been for a good reason. As I have posted on this site and in social media, the collateral effects of this amendment will now plague our state for years to come. All is not lost. Voters have the power to hire and fire their elected officials. The one I am running against is the co-author and co-sponsor of Amendment One. While Tuesday may have appeared to be a victory to my opponent, a certain number had to have caught his attention. 57% of Wake County voted against Amendment One.
The battle is not lost. Unfortunately, it will now be fought through petitions and court cases. However, on November 6th, voters of District 37 will have a choice whether to allow the architect of Amendment One to keep drafting Bills in the N.C House of Representatives. I believe a change in leadership in this District is long overdue.
The race will not be easy. As House Majority Leader, Paul "Skip" Stam has better access to the media and fundraising is easier for an incumbent in his position. But 2011 taught us that no one is permanently entrenched in their seat. Susan Evans pulled off a huge upset in her race for Wake County School Board. It took hard work and the support of the people who were fed up with the policies of the incumbent candidate. A change like this in leadership can happen again on November 6th, rather than continuing to be led by the architect of Amendment One. Will you join me? www.jasonwunsch.com
