I moved here from eastern North Carolina over 30 years ago and at that time Macon County was growing and there were plenty of jobs, as was the rest of the country. Look what our elected officials have done for us. Because of all the government regulations we have just about stopped developments and building in Macon County, which means jobs gone. Without jobs we cannot pay the taxes it takes to pay the salaries for the people necessary to enforce these regulations.
On the federal level it is no secret why our companies are going to other countries.
