GOP Candidates, Officials: No Grant Money for Personal Benefit
Edwards Blasts 'Grant-Hungry' Democrats

Republican candidates for commissioner and the legislature are pledging to not accept any grant money for their personal benefit or for their friends.  This is due in part to a Democratic commissioner who is receiving $100,000 in tax-paid grant money for her restaurant.

Republican commissioners Harry Foy, Don Lancaster and Bob Winters have pledged to not accept any grant money.  Commission candidates Stephen Phillips, Lancaster, Jeremy Neal, Ken Gregorius and legislative candidates Keith Shearon for state House and Chuck Stires for state Senate have pledged to accept no grant money. Dan Mansell, candidate for Congress, also refuses grant money.

"No wonder the Democrats keep voting for tax increases, because they want to line their pockets with our money. The days of tax and spend liberals taking a million tax-dollars to protect snails and mussels or for opening a restaurant must stop," said Chairman John Edwards. "I applaud all of our Republican candidates and commissioners for looking out for the taxpayers. When elected our candidates will put a stop to higher taxes, wasteful spending and will end the Democrats' grant-hungry trough."
