Commissioner’s actions were disappointing

To the Editor:

It was disappointing to read that Commissioner Mark Jones representing District 4 voted to support a resolution from Occupy WNC attacking corporations. Since he was elected in 2006 he has consistently voted for anti-business regulations, stripping private property rights and done little to represent or improve his district, let alone provide necessary infrastructure and services.

It is no surprise Mark Jones has never been elected by the people in his district who know him best. Since our commissioners are elected at large, it is important for countywide voters to know more about the candidates they are voting for in each district. This November we have an opportunity to vote for candidates who are pro business, understand our economic needs and do not practice class warfare. It is time for a new commissioner to “Occupy” the 4th District seat.
