McRae Visits Here
In Behalf Of His
Race For Governor
Charlotte Man Preparing For
Issues In Coming Election
On Trip In Section
John ,A. McRae, of Charlotte, an
announced candidate for governor of
this state, was a Waynesville visitor
last week; combining business with
While here, Mr. McRae and his son,
made a number of visits with several
citizens of the town and county, ex
plaining his attitude on the several
issues that are certain to enter into
the campaign when it gets fully underway.
Mr. McRae expressed himself as be.
ing against the sales tax having
been a member of the legislature in
1931, and voted against it then but
sees no other way from under the
sales tax other than balancing the
budget and cutting on operating ex
penses. The real estate is carrying
all the tax burden possible, he said.
Balance the budget, and tut the
sales tax down, then entirely out.,"
was his suggestion.
The candidate had little to say
about the liquor question, other than
o say that liquor is still the greatest
evil man ever had to contend with and
his idea was for each county to vote
whether or not to have a state-con-
(trolled, liquor store, and have the
state control the saje oi liquor in
the counties voting for the stores.
Later on Mr. McRae expects to
come back to this section and open
his campaign. Just whoni will man
age his campaign in Haywood was
not announced this time.
