Buck Golding, Republican ..., 14 Sept 2010 [cached]
Buck Golding, Republican candidate for the Central District seat on the Surry County Board of Commissioners, said he stepped down as the chairman of the Surry County Republican Party. He said he made that move because he is seeking election.
Golding was asked what are the two biggest issues facing Surry County and how he would address them.
"Jobs, jobs, jobs. We are really in dire straights for jobs in Surry County. The present commissioners and economic development people have worked hard and tried to get things in here. Still we need to make this county absolutely friendly for outside interest to come in and do business so we can get our people back to work," said Golding.
Golding said the second biggest issue facing the county is keeping the tax rate steady.
"People are hurting and we want to make sure that this county stays the way it is, with all the services that we can afford. We've got to take the fat out if we can find any. We will make sure that happens with the new board that goes on," said Golding.
On a question concerning eminent domain, in the case where the county commissioners bought a family farm from the Terrell family in order to enlarge the landfill, Golding said he doesn't believe in taking people's property.
"I didn't know all of the details about why they took that farm, but I do know that they didn't take that farm without paying a reasonable amount of money for it. So you have to get all the facts, and I don't have them all. But I still would not ever want to be faced with trying to take somebody's farm," said Golding.
When faced with the question of "According to the N.C. Treasurer's report, Surry County's budget surplus increased 62 percent over the past five years and is 42 percent above the state average. While we applaud the commissioners for maintaining a healthy surplus in these difficult economic times, do you see this as an indication that tax rates have gone up more than has been necessary?"
Golding said he didn't know those numbers to be real.
"It possibly may be because I haven't checked on that myself. I knew what it was when I was in office, but I don't know that it's gone up that much right now," said Golding, who explained that the law requires counties to have at least one year of cost in the fund balance from every county.
To the question of whether or not Commissioner Bill Hamlin's and Commissioner Jim Harrell's wife sitting on the Surry Community College Board of Trustees is a conflict of interest, he said it is a conflict of interest to some degree.
Golding was asked what he would do to create jobs in Surry County. "To make this county absolutely a place where people want to expand their businesses and also try to attract new businesses in here."
He also made the point that the "vineyard business" would never replace the cash crop that tobacco once was in Surry County.
