FreedomWorks North Carolina has been busy moving our ideas forward in a variety of ways the last few weeks. Before I update you on our progress, I want to take the time to remind you to vote next Tuesday. Exercising our right and privilege to vote is one of the most important ways to move our ideas into the realm of public policy. Early voting is already underway, and there are a couple of important issues facing voters. The following counties face a land transfer tax on the ballot: Ashe, Gates, Orange and Tyrell. There is a sales tax increase on the ballot in these counties: Cumberland, Duplin, Edgecombe, Gaston, Greene, Henderson, Hertford, Lee, Lincoln, Moore, Nash, Onslow, Randolph, Rockingham, Stanly, Wayne, Wilkes and Wilson.
