Still exploring the potential for running against Butterfield. We are holding a meeting in Williamston to measure support on Thursday, Sept. 17th. I hope everyone in our district who can make it will come out and share their comments.

I look forward to sharing my thoughts with you, and letting my neighbors know where I stand on key issues. You already know where I stand on taxes! Come let me know what;s important to you, because if I'm blessed to be your congressman I will be working for you. Oh yeah, and I won't forget that like some politicians have done.

We are still exploring the feasability of a campaign to run against G.K. Butterfield for the 1st congressional district.

We will be holding a dutch treat luncheon at Noon next Thursday, Sept. 17th in the Hitchin' Post Restaurant on HWY 17 South of Williamston, NC. This meeting will be the first opportunity for the public to meet me, and hear where I stand on the important issues of our time, but more importantly for me to listen to what the people of this District want in a representative.

We will announce that we are seeking a campaign chairman and a campaign treasurer. We will also voice the need for an army of volunteers who want to help us bring "common sense" to Washington, DC.

I hope you will all join us at this meeting, and bring your ideas and concerns. I also ask you to pass this information on to everyone you know so they too can get involved.

After you hear me speak, you will understand why I will be known as "The Common Sense Candidate".

Mr. Robison, I'd be happy to discuss this with you over the phone or in person. My direct number is 252-217-3777. Feel free to call me any time.

My direct E-mail is rod@decm.org. There seems to be quite a bit of support for me to run against Mr. Butterfield.

I am seriously considering this opportunity now, and continuing to talk to people all over the district. Please feel free to share your concerns and comments with me either through this venue, or directly to my E-mail. I will be a strong supporter of Fair Tax in the Congress!

Rodney - We need a way to contact you. I sent an email to billybarepockets.com and have not received a reply. Go to roanokevalleypatriots.com. The word is out that you may run. I think many people may do as I have done. I changed my party affiliation from Republican to Unaffiliated last week to be more flexible for the primary, and because the Republican Party is really clueless in NC. If you are a true conservative, will not check your principles at the House door and get behind Fair Tax, I think you have a very good chance with the political atmosphere we are now in. Fair Tax will make a solid foundation and will be a great way to educate the public. Go to my blog - jawsjr.blogspot.com - and look at the articles on Butterfield. He's a menace.

We're testing the waters right now, but I'm willing to serve if the people want me. It seems that the only way to take this district back for the people is to have a Democrat win it in the primary.

Rodney are you going to run?
Comment by Rodney Ballance on August 22, 2009 at 8:50pm
I am considering a run against Butterfiled on the Democratic ticket next year. I live in Martin County, and am an Eastern NC native. Obviously I am a very conservative candidate, and support the Fairtax initiative completely.

Any advice or support would be appreciated as we form a team to determine the feasability of this potential effort.

I am more than willing to help in the effort to find a good candidate to replace Butterfield. You can contact me through my website at www,billybarepockets.com
Comment by Rodney Ballance on August 2, 2009 at 10:18am
Mr. Butterfield has been ranked in effeciency at www.billybarepockets.com. We also make a plea for someone to run against him.

We will never get any good programs like Fairtax in place as long as people like Butterfield are in office.

If there are other candidates you wanted ranked, please let us know, or have the good candidates complete the online questionaire at www.billybarepockets.com
