They can criticize Dan Blue, but when he was Speaker of the House, he governed with honesty and integrity. We didn’t have any of our staff caught up in sex scandals with lobbyists, then give away golden parachutes after a resignation.
That’s the kind of failed leadership my Republican opponent, Susan Martin blindly supports. But what else can you expect from a right-wing extremist, Tea Party zealot, who just moved to North Carolina from New Jersey?

Support Conservative Susan Martin
The North Carolina Republican House Caucus is extremely proud of our new candidates for 2012. Now that the primary season is over, we wanted to introduce you to some of these new candidates who we feel are the future leaders of our Caucus.
Susan Martin is one such candidate. She is a commonsense conservative running in House District 8, which includes Pitt and Wilson Counties.
A Wilson County resident, Susan has an extensive private sector background and plans to use that experience and perspective to tackle the problems facing North Carolina. As a Client Representative for IBM, Susanwas involved in helping companies solve problems and become more competitive, including evaluating when technology investments can reduce costs, improve productivity, or increase sales. Susan’s analytical, commonsense approach equip her to cut government waste and burdensome regulations to foster an evironment of sustainable job creation.
Furthermore, Susan understands the benefits of lowering taxes in a down economy and protecting personal liberties.
Tragically, her Democratic opponent, a liberal trial lawyer, government insider and lobbyist Mark Bibbs, offers the same failed liberal tax-and-spend ideas that drove North Carolina into its economic woes.
Bibbs’ served as a policy advisor to Speaker Dan Blue in the early 1990s. Below are tax increases implemented in North Carolina during Speaker Blue’s tenure:
Increased the sales tax from 3% to 4%,
Increased the corportate tax increase of 7% to 7.75%,
Levied an additional 7.75% tax increase on hard working North Carolinians making $100,000 or more
Increased the gas tax by 1/2 cent
What was Bibbs role? Was Bibbs instrumental in helping craft numerous tax increases?
Mark Bibbs, in an attempt to hide his tax-and-spend past, is trying to distort his stances in order to win election. He claims he is a "mainstream" Democrat against taxes, but his actions speak louder than words.
On second thought, his words too highlight his liberal tax-and-spend mentality. His "100% support" for Walter "Bev Perdue Part 2" Dalton (who has announced plans to increase the sales tax on North Carolininans by 15% during tough economic times), combined with his endorsement of President Obama’s re-election campaign, demonstrate where Mark Bibbs stands on the issues and what kind of legislator he would be.
In addition, Mark has already shown how out of touch he is with the citizens of Wilson and Pitt County by publicly opposing the marriage amendment that was widely popular in those counties.
North Carolina cannot afford more of the same out of touch, liberal tax-and-spend policies from Mark Bibbs that crippled North Carolina and our economy.
After 140 years of Democrat rule, North Carolina is starting to see light on the horizon. Susan Martin is precisely the commonsense conservative that the citizens of Wilson and Pitt Counties deserve as their representative in Raleigh.
