I a paid for by friends of William Lone revels a skipper Bowles says he is against any More taxes for the next four years. He is the same Man who voted for More than is of million in new tobacco soft drink and gasoline taxes As a legislator in 1969. The next year running for state Senate he said he would try to Cut by one half the increase in the gasoline tax he had voted for. But after he was elected he changed his mind and failed to introduce legislation for this purpose. How do we know he won t change his mind again on the other hand there s Pat Taylor. A Man who in 17 years of distinguished service has never broken a Promise to the people of North Carolina. Pat Taylor is As much against higher taxes As anyone else. In fact he would like to Cut taxes. Pat Taylor has t made any Flat promises about taxes because he does t know what might happen during the next four years and neither does anyone else. Furthermore Pat Taylor knows that Only the general Assembly can raise or lower taxes. But Pattay Lochas promised to do everything he can As governor to Cut costs and eliminate waste. So that North Carolina can meet its responsibilities without higher taxes. That s a Promise you can believe. There s a difference Between promises and performance. North Carolina knows the difference
