On February 18, 2004, at 12 noon, 15 CSE members met in Mocksville, NC at the Prime Sirloin Steak House. The guest speaker was Lt. Gov. candidate Bill Boyd. Bill pledged to support lowering taxes across the board for individuals
and corporations and said he would sign the CSE pledge to not raise taxes. Bill agrees with CSE that low, simple tax code will do more to grow the economy and attract new businesses than targeted tax incentive packages.CSE is inviting all candidates in the Lt. Governor race to meet and discuss these important issues.
