THE REASONS I DECIDED TO RUN FOR THE NORTH CAROLINA STATE SENATE!!!
Hello Everyone. My name is Danny Hefner, and it is my intention, to once again, seek Election to the North Carolina State Senate, to represent District 8, in the 2014 Election Cycle. North Carolina's State Senate, District 8, is comprised of Brunswick, Bladen, Pender, and part of New Hanover Counties. I will, again, be running as a member of the Democratic Party. After my unsuccessful attempt, to be elected to this Senate Seat in 2012, I had to do a lot of soul searching about my possible future in politics. When I reported to the General Public, that I was uncertain about another bid for office, I received an innumerable amount of messages, phone calls, emails, etc. requesting that I not give up. I do not have all of the answers, and I will not pretend to have them; but you and I working together, will produce results. I am a flawed, and imperfect individual, but the key and chief difference between myself, and the current State Senator, Bill Rabon, is simply this; I will listen to you. It does not matter which political party, that you, the Citizen, is affiliated with, I WILL LISTEN! At this juncture, in our State's political climate, we have the public screaming to be heard, and in the words of Senator Bill Rabon, "This administration should begin to wield its power." Since being sworn into office, the Republicans have viciously "wielded" power, that the Citizens entrusted them with, against the Middle Class, the Working Poor, and Impoverished People of this State. Senator Rabon has stood with his Party in their unrelenting bid to further impoverish the citizens of this State, while claiming to be acting in the best interest of the People. However, their actions, only protect the "Investments", that have been made by their donors, and other special interest groups. The Power that the People have entrusted him with, has been used against the People. It is my opinion, that the Power of Government, Resides in the People, not the Legislature. I will only ask you to trust me once, by casting your Vote for me in 2014. I will then continually endeavor to earn the trust that you have placed in me.
