Election day in Mecklenburg County

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams

Today is a big day for the county.  Mayoral and town board elections are happening in CHarlotte and all the suburban towns.  The outcome could shape growth and taxes for years to come.  In addition the 1/2cent sales tax used to fund mass transit is up for repeal.  The local Realtor board is endorsing voting AGAINST the repeal.  THe other ballot items include school and community college bonds that will also shape our future.

As an agent, I must support the school bonds.  How else can we continue to promote our county as a great place to relocate if we don't build schools for the new students that move here.  Many of these planned schools are in my marketing area-- the northern part of Mecklenburg County.

Tonight the outcomes will be announced.  Lets hope the realtor community showed up to vote and voted for things that are good for our business!
