If you have ever had an interest in helping to shape state laws, here is your chance. The The Joint Study Commission on Municipal Annexation is holding a meeting on Jan 6th at 10:00 am. You can find out information at http://stopncannexation.com/ where you can also find out how you can be involved.
Annexation in NC is one of the last vestiges of "Taxation Without Representation." Cities have an almost unfettered right to take people into their boundaries and tax them with the affected citizens having NO SAY in the decision.
Here is a chance to be involved and have a positive impact on the future.
