On July 4, 2002, I suffered a stroke. Upon awakening, I did not even know my own son. My Neurosurgeon told me my brain was damaged and I would never work again.
A year or so later, I discontinued paying my NC Heating and Air Conditioning state license.
As a Union County, NC commercial and industrial Heating and A/C contractor, now Sen. Tommy Tucker, as a vendor, called on me to sell me HVAC equipment. Knowing Mr. Tucker, I told him I could purchase equal of higher equipment at lower prices.
Some 12 years after my stroke and with God’s help and hard work, my health had improved. I decided to return to the HVAC business as a licensee for another company so as to expand their business and create more jobs in our community; as I also needed the income.
In doing so, and inasmuch as a licensee for years, I had no blemishes on my record with the NC State Board, I submitted a plan to Sen. Tommy Tucker asking him to submit a simple change in legislation to the General Assembly so as I could recover my HVAC License without being forced to start over, just as most other professionals are allowed to do so.
Mr. Tucker called me to tell me the State Board laws had been in place for a number of years and he would not introduce any changes. Over the years, Sen. Tucker has supported many, many changes within this State Board’s laws. See a simple example for legislative changes in the 2013 Session and my 2014 legislative proposal: http://conservativechristianvoice.blogspot.com/search?q=Several+changes+in+the+NC+State+Board+by+NC+General+Assembly+in+one+session+of+the+2013+Session.
Senator Tucker went on to tell me he had checked my record and found that I had an ‘impeccable’ record with the NC State Board. If Tucker had already made his decision, why did he check my record with the State Board?
With this grind, and after I have researched and endorsed GOP candidate Matt Daly for NC Senate District 35 from Waxhaw, NC, I am asking voters to consider your support for a young conservative Republican candidate, Matthew Daly for NC Senate District 35.
Matt Daly is a dedicated Pro-Life candidate, supporter of the 2nd Amendment, and strongly opposes amnesty for ‘illegal’ immigrants http://www.dalyforncsenate.com/.
