Taylor Challenges Soles Bid
For 7 Oth Term In N. C. Senate
Incumbent state Senator R.C. Soles Jr. of Tabor City
is seeking re-election to a 10th term as senator and his
14th term in the North Carolina legislature.
Challenging him is Ron Taylor of Elizabethtown
and Holden Beach, a former state representative.
No Republican is seeking the seat, so the primary
determines who will serve the district. The ISth District
includes all of Brunswick and Columbus counties, all of
Bladen County except Hollow and White Oak
precincts, and Wilmington precincts No. 4 and 5 in
New Hanover County.
These are the candidates' responses to question
naires submitted bv I he Brunswick Beacon.
R.C. SOLES JR.
Education: Tabor City High School; B.S. Wake
Forest University. 1956; University
of North Carolina School of Law,
Previous offices: N.C. Senate,
nine terms, 1977-present; N.C.
House of Representatives, four
Related experience: 26 years
of legislative service
Want to accomplish: During
my 26 years in the legislature I
SOLES have served as chairman of the com
mittees on health, local government, state government
and judiciary. I now serve as deputy president pro tem
pore of the Senate, which is the second highest office in
the Senate. I believe that my experience and position that
I now hold enables me to represent the ISth Senatorial
District extremely well. 1 plan to continue to work hard in
the areas of education and economic development. We
need to pay particular attention to the needs of our com
mercial fishermen in Brunswick County. We also need to
enact legislation that will protect our environment and
prevent large mining operations that will destroy the envi
ronment and quality of life in Brunswick County.
Occupation: president, Taylor Manufacturing, Inc.
Education: East Carolina University, B.S., 1974
Previous offices: N.C. House
of Representatives, 1977-19X2;
N.C. State Ports Authority, 1979
Related experience: manage
ment of a diversified manufactur
ing concern, selling products that
can be used by people around the
Wants to accomplish: As a
husband and father, worker and em
ployer, I believe I bring to the office of State Senator a
better understanding of the needs of the 18th District. I
am very concerned about the way Constitutional rights
have been eroded in areas within my district. A major
goal of my tenure as senator will be to restore the right
of every citizen to control their own destiny. I would
actively sponsor legislation to abolish all systems of ap
pointing, rather than electing, public officials who gov
ern and who allocate and spend taxpayer dollars.
I am also disturbed by proposals and actions that
will ultimately undermine our already endangered
coastal area. In these two. as well as other instances, 1
see the old political machine as the real culprit. I be
lieve we need to totally review the manner in which
things come to pass in our district and return to gover
nance that is fair for all residents. My standard operat
ing procedure as senator will be to provide onc-on-onc
dialogue with those who have elected me, so I can ad
dress the needs of all residents, rather than a chosen
few. I will be accessible to my constituents.
Further. I have not, in this campaign nor at any oth
er time, taken donations from political action commit
tees. I did not take such funds from the NCAE recently
when they endorsed me over the incumbent. I welcome
the assistance of the NCAE membership and other
groups who support my candidacy; however, I believe 1
can represent ail residents of my district only by re
maining free from such entanglements.
