Chatham county is a fairly large county neighboring both Wake and Orange county. The county is socioeconomically divided. Districts 1, 2, 3 attract bedroom communities while districts 4 and 5 contain some of NC's finest workable farmland, rural factories, and families who have been in Chatham for generations. The Rural oasis of the terrain brings affluent commuters here but Chatham needs Economic Development if we are going grow our commercial tax base allowing us to creating jobs, increase school funding, and invest in our infrastructure and water facilities.
2010 proved to be a historic year for the Republican Party in Chatham County. A traditionally Blue County, Chatham Republicans Walter Petty, Pam Stewart, and Brian Bock swept the commissioner's race for only the second time since the Civil War! At the time, our economy was on life support and this committed team of Republicans was set on opening Chatham county for Business. Bock and team were committed to preserving the rural splendor of the county while creating economic development that would help Chatham bounce back years later. Fast forward to 2014.
Democrats regained power in 2014 and rode the wave of economic growth put into place by Bock and team. This new trifecta of Democrats want to severely limit economic development that Chatham residents desperately need to decrease pressure on raising personal property taxes to pay for county expenses. A runaway tax plan, a closed for business blanket zoning policy, lack of governmental transparency by democrats and conversations with voters are what inspired Bock to run once more- to serve Chatham and guide the policies he and his team put into place. 2018 marks a historic moment for Chatham. Unprecedented growth, 2 megasites, Chatham Park, Environmental concerns looming, and lack of commercial tax revenue demands strong and honest leadership to usher Chatham into this new era. Most importantly we need to listen to the 70,000 Chatham county residents and get out of private BOC meetings and talk to the people on how they want to govern the county.
