Elect Robinson to replace Sen. Davis

To the Editor:

I’m writing as a citizen and resident of Jackson County to voice my support for Ron Robinson for North Carolina State Senate, District 50, the seat currently occupied by Tea Party extremist Jim Davis, R-Franklin. 

As a person deeply concerned about the degradation of our natural environment, I see Robinson as someone I can trust to act responsibly and reasonably in addressing the most important issues of our times. Ron Robinson will use science, not an ideological partisan political agenda, as the basis for the environmental and health policies he supports and proposes when elected. 

Ron Robinson will not be controlled by the PAC money of Art Pope’s front groups, the Koch Brothers, the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), Duke Energy or any of the other corrupting influences that have been muddying the waters of our democratic electoral process in North Carolina in recent years. I would urge all who care about the environment, public health, our educational system and local control of our state government, to vote for Ron Robinson in the Democratic Primary on May 6 and in the General Election on Nov. 4.
