Mint Hill will most likely get a new state senator in latest redistricting map

The Mint Hill TimesMint Hill will no longer be in State Senate District 35 according to the latest Republican-drawn redistricting map released today. Mint Hill’s new district will be 41 which runs mostly along I-485 from Matthews, to Mint Hill to north Mecklenburg County.

The map will still need a final vote—most likely in late July—and there could be a few more tweaks. But more than likely Mint Hill will have a new state senator in the next state-wide elections.

A public hearing video conference will be held July 18 at CPCC on the proposed changes.

Myrick applauded for her stance against the estate tax

 The American Family Business Institute applauded Rep. Sue Myrick for her support to permanently repeal the Federal Estate Tax.

Rep. Myrick  and 150 other members of Congress have signed the “Death Tax Repeal Permanency Act” (HR 1259), originally sponsored by Representatives Kevin Brady (R-TX-8) and Mike Ross (D-AR-4).

“Representative Myrick is a champion for death tax repeal,” said AFBI President Dick Patten.  “By supporting legislation that repeals the Federal Estate Tax, she is standing up for family business owners, farmers and entrepreneurs across North Carolina and America.”

Representative Myrick signed AFBI’s “Death Tax Repeal Pledge” during the 2010 election cycle.
