Plain and simple, Kris McCann is socially conservative, believes in school choice, the rights of gun owners, and traditional values.
A native of Forsyth County, Kris McCann has been a volunteer for the Forsyth County EMS and Fire Services for over 42 years. In 2012 and 2014, McCann ran against Democratic Evelyn Terry in NC House District 71. However, many of you may recognize his name from when he was a strong voice against last year's move to change the Dixie Classic Fair name. Kris McCann recognizes it’s just a name but our city leadership was not listening to the majority of voices of their community members. He believes that strong city leadership means being fair, consistent, and reasonable with all members of the community no matter their race, gender or religion.
Think about this: What has Mayor Joines done for YOU in 19 years? If you aren't happy with the direction things have been going then it's time to help make a change.
Kris McCann realizes uncomfortable conversations may need to happen but he is ready to address problems and actually work to get them fixed.
The Republican party is the party of:
FREEDOM (free speech, right to bear arms)
PROSPERITY (low taxes, sound monetary policies, regulatory restraint)
VISION (hope, confidence, growth – not fear based)
STRENGTH (law and order to protect the well-being of its citizens)
FUTURE (we believe that individuals, not government, make the best decisions. All people are entitled to equal rights, and the best decisions are made close to home)
It is time for a change in our city leadership. If you want to see your values represented again in the decisions made by our city and to have a strong voice for the people, VOTE MCCANN in 2020
I stand with all of our local small business owners! I realize this is one of the things that makes our city so unique as well as garners national and international recognition. Businesses of all shapes and sizes should be allowed to thrive and see support from the city government. All businesses should be allowed to open and operate equally. Especially when faced with such a devastating time such as Coronavirus. If this were to happen again, our local businesses deserve more than to just be shut down.
In 2020 Mayor Joines pulled funds from the bond money (reference WXII 3/18/20) but, he set limitations on which business owners could receive financial assistance from the city. Bond money is paid by taxpayers, especially business owners. The city should be doing everything in their power to help the local small businesses survive and continue to support their families and employees. I believe the proposed budget of 2020-2021 should be reconfigured to allow money to flow directly to aid small businesses staying open in our community.
I stand in support with our local law enforcement and emergency first responders! I believe that they have the ability to create positive relationships within in the communities that they serve. Law and order is needed for any great city to thrive.
In no way, shape or form would I be for defunding the police.
I also believe that our local law enforcement and sheriffs should be working with the federal government and ICE.
