Support for Nixon

I was a Democrat. Now, thanks to our new voting laws, I am independent again.

I do not care if there is a “D” or “R” or “GOP” next to the man or woman who is running to represent the people in our government. What I do care about is the fact that they will represent us. Represent us as individuals, as businesses and people.

Toby Nixon has shown time and time again that it is the people that are on the top of his agenda. He believes in our state’s constitution when it says: “All political power is inherent in the people, and governments derive their just powers from the consent of the governed, and are established to protect and maintain individual rights.”

This is the first of many declarations of rights in our state constitution. It is first, but always forgotten. By electing Toby Nixon, the people of the 45th District will have a true representative working for them. A man that will put the power of the people back into our government.
