Patterson To Donate Congressional Salary To WNC Non-Profits If Elected To Congress
Vance Patterson, businessman from Burke County, sent a shock through a Burke County Forum audience when he stated, “if elected, I will donate my entire salary of $174,500 a year to charitable organizations in the 11th District of North Carolina. In addition, as part of my jobs plan, I will set up a matching fund with a challenge going out to the business leaders to match my contribution. These funds will be used to develop jobs and train employees in Western North Carolina. This means that, if elected, my one Congressional seat will contribute $700,000 over the next two years to the 11th District for job growth and safety net needs,” stated Patterson.
Vance closed with; “This is how true entrepreneurship works. I believe so much in the people of Western North Carolina and our quality of life, that I’m pushing everything onto the table. I’m leaving my businesses, I’m taking weeks away from my family, I’ve put a 2nd mortgage on my house to self-finance my campaign, and now I’m giving up my salary. I’m pushing it all onto the table. I’m all in. With your support, I will bring companies and jobs from across the country and around the world to Western North Carolina. All I ask of you is for your vote, so that I can work for your family, for my family and to help save America for our future generations. Vote to hire me on May 8th! Thank you.”
AND THE CROWD WENT WILD!
