To the Editor:

Thank you to the candidates, the many volunteers and the voters in the mid-term elections. Macon County voters turned out in record numbers and Republicans did well here and across Western North Carolina. Well done.

But, we still need major changes in Washington, D.C. The looming presidential election will not be easy. This is a time for all Americans to stand up for fiscal responsibility, for individual accountability and for a lessening of federal power and influence even when it impacts a project that you love and want to keep.  To control spending, to reduce federal government involvement in our lives, to keep taxes at the same level, we must eliminate and reduce federal programs — particularly welfare programs — even when they impact us personally!

Gary Dills

Chairman, Macon County GOP
