McCrory’s efforts paying off for state

Written by 

To the Editor:

In most of the Western Carolina newspapers’ letters to the editor section, we can count on one main topic — Gov. Pat McCrory and the Republicans are bad for North Carolina! But did you notice that last month in August the State of North Carolina moved from having the 49th highest unemployment rate in the U.S. to number 44, tied with Georgia and the District of Columbia. 

While many are complaining, condemning and criticizing Gov. McCrory, he is out every day promoting our state and looking for new businesses to open up in our state. Ninety-eight out of 100 counties lowered their unemployment rates last month. That is amazing and a positive sign for our unemployed. 

Reducing North Carolina’s taxes is beginning to bring new businesses to our state. Tens of thousands of people have lost their homes in North Carolina in the last five years because of a lack of jobs. North Carolina now has a governor who is committed to improving our economy and helping people keep their homes and helping the unemployed find work. Gov. Pat McCrory is working his butt off to do that. His efforts are beginning to pay off for North Carolina.
