School Board Victors, Losers Debate Why

BY Marion Callahan

Some incumbents ousted in last week's Lincoln County school board election blame a political coup, of sorts, for pitting voters against them. Others say people simply wanted a change. "There were political insiders working hard against the school board as a whole," said board Chairwoman Betty Lawing, who has held her seat for 20 years but lost it Tuesday to George Dellinger, a retired schoolteacher. "They touched a lot of people and said we hadn't spent money wisely and didn't buy text books. "

Poll: Environment Worries Texans

BY Randy Lee Loftis

Fewer than one in five Texans think their local environment has gotten better over the last 10 years - and one-third think it has gotten worse, according to a Scripps Howard Texas Poll to be released Monday. An overwhelming majority - as high as 92 percent - say they are concerned about environmental problems ranging from pollution of drinking water to global warming. On nearly every environmental topic, most Texans say they are very concerned, the poll found.

Saine Resigns After One Day

BY Chip Wilson and Marion Callahan

Citing a conflict with his job as a political activist, Jason Saine resigned from the Lincoln County school board Thursday - the day after his controversial appointment. Saine, 27, said he made his decision before discovering he couldn't have stayed on the board because he lives about 200 feet outside the Howard's Creek township - the district he was appointed to represent. His residency aside, Saine said he made his decision because of his job.

Election 2000 State Supreme Court Results

Trial lawyers make their most significant gains where they feel most at ease: the courts. When trial lawyers lose legislatively, they turn their focus to state Supreme Courts and activist judges to strike down tort reform laws. In fact, state courts have overturned tort reform laws over 90 times in the last 16 years. CSE was active with our state Supreme Court voter education efforts in four states this year: Alabama, Illinois, Ohio, and Michigan. Educating voters in a state Supreme Court battle is tough: it has to involve on-the-ground activities with intensive door-to-door voter education efforts.

Election 2000 Federal Results

CSE’s federal strategy was to identify races in states and areas that are strong for CSE and also are critical to the overall movement. We did so and took our message directly to the grassroots. In several cases, our activists and staff were the only organization on the ground distributing flyers about the importance of tort reform, as well as where candidates stood on this important issue.

NC CSE Activists (and Sharkman) Big Splash at Campaign Events

Hamlet, North Carolina—Sharkman joined CSE activists Monday at a rally for U.S. Rep. Robin Hayes that included Senator John McCain, Rep. Lindsay Graham (MI) and Rep. Tom Davis (VA).

Hayes. McCain said “There’s Sharkman! I tell you, he followed me all over New Hampshire and I’m always glad to see him.” The moment even got emotional when Senator McCain approached Sharkman and tenderly confessed “Sharkman, I love you.”

CSE Activists Inundate Candidates All Over Michigan

Michigan CSE activists and staff barnstormed the state in an effort to educate voters on the issues of prescription drugs and Medicare reform. CSE distributed information throughout the state at numerous campaign rallies and pounded in hundreds of signs that read “Gore Medicare Plan: Prescription for Disaster.” The literature included a booklet that offers a detailed explanation of Medicare’s original intent, current structure and financial future, and a farecard that compares Gore’s price control plans with Bush’s market-oriented reforms.

CSE’s On-the-Ground Efforts Make the Difference in Florida

In the wake of the 2000 elections, one thing is abundantly clear: it was the on-the-ground campaign work on the margins that made the difference. This is where CSE focuses its time and resources in Florida—touching more voters than made up the difference between winning and losing. The candidates know CSE’s strength and they heed our message. Throughout the state and in the tight districts, CSE was there to tilt the balance, and we did.

Taxpayers Stop Potential State Tax Increase

Taxpayers have stopped a potential state tax increase. Post election results show that CSE has signed pledges and commitments from a majority of members of the North Carolina House of Representatives and 18 members of the North Carolina Senate who were either re-elected or elected yesterday. This gives a clear majority of votes needed to stop any tax increase in the 2001-02 session of the North Carolina General Assembly.
