In 2011, the General Assembly reformed North Carolina's annexation laws to give homeowners more voice in matters of annexation. Private property rights are the cornerstone of a free society and more needs to be done to keep government's hands off private property. I support Eminent Domain reforms, which guarantee that government cannot seize private property for commercial purposes. I will also fight to stop any attempt to loosen North Carolina's new annexation law. Taxpayers and property owners, not politicians and bureaucrats, will receive my loyalty in all these matters.
