In Race for Apodaca's Seat, Educator Norm Bossert Hopes to Defy the Odds...
Jeremy Loeb says: "North Carolina Senate District 48 features the race for Republican Senator Tom Apodaca's seat. One of the state's most influential lawmakers, Apodaca decided to retire early, meaning his seat is up for grabs. The conservative-leaning district covers parts of Buncombe, Henderson, and Transylvania counties. It's represented now by Republican Senator Chuck Edwards, a small business owner who was appointed to fill Apodaca's vacancy. Edwards declined our interview request. His opponent, Democrat Norm Bossert, was more than happy to be interviewed. He drove over to WCQS one evening from Black Mountain Elementary School, where he's been principal for about a decade, to answer questions on the numerous issues of concern in this election. The full conversation is above. We've highlighted some individual issues below."

Norm's TV Commercial Debuts
If we're going to send an Educator to the Legislature, we have to introduce Norm to as many people as possible. Encourage your friends to watch Norm's commercial, and if you are able, contribute to his campaign so we can purchase more air time. Thank you for your support!

Norm's TV Campaign Kicks Off October 1, and you can help!
30% of our state legislators are members of the business community; only 1% are educators. Yet over half the state's budget supports public education, and many education policies are written every year.
Doesn't it make sense to send a knowledgeable educator to the legislature? If you agree, please help introduce Norm to voters by supporting our TV campaign through the "contribute link" on this site. Thank you so much!

[Thanks to Lee McMinn for this great letter to the editor of the Asheville Citizen-Times!]
"For a while now, I’ve been hearing Norm Bossert talk about what he wants to do when he’s elected senator representing NC Senate District 48 (Henderson, Transylvania, and the southern part of Buncombe counties).
"Norm wants to develop more sources and uses of alternative energy, to rebuild the N.C. Department of Environmental Quality to strengthen environmental protections that have been decimated by the current administration, to repeal laws that prevent towns and communities from gaining information about fracking, to deal positively with Duke Power’s coal ash problem, and to repeal HB2, which has embarrassed our state on the national and international stages.
"Norm presents balanced solutions to these problems that will not burden us with unnecessary taxes or intrusive regulation. As an educator and principal in our public schools, Norm wants to restore pride in our education system and respect for our teachers.
"Norm’s opponent recently was anointed to finish an unexpired term and will only continue the extremely hurtful voting record of his predecessor on issues important to us. I believe that there is a better choice in this election. I encourage you to vote for Norm Bossert as senator from N.C. Senate District 48 on Nov. 8."
