JDNews.com: Americans for Prosperity make local stop
CAPE CARTERET — A stop in Carteret County was part of a three-day kick-off of a conservative group’s new initiative focused on spending cuts in Washington.
Dallas Woodhouse, state director for Americans for Prosperity-North Carolina, spoke at the monthly meeting of the Carteret County Men’s Republican Club as part of this week’s events announcing the organization’s Spending Accountability Project.
The group traveled around the state Tuesday through Thursday to introduce the initiative to put pressure on the state’s congressional delegation to stop overspending.
After a day of visiting district offices of congressmen, including the offices of Rep. Walter Jones and Sen. Kay Hagan in Greenville, Woodhouse asked those gathered Wednesday night in Cape Carteret to join the organization in its efforts.
“I’m asking you to help us send this message to Washington,” Woodhouse said.
As part of that effort, AFP invited everyone in attendance to sign cards to be delivered to the congressional delegation encouraging spending cuts and asking Congress not to block $85 billion in upcoming automatic federal spending cuts.
“They need to hear from you,” Woodhouse said.
