David Wheeler for NC Senate • 47th District


Corruption is a menace in Western NC that no politician seems to care much about. I wonder why?

Whether I am elected or not, I am starting a non-profit organization focused on corruption in Western North Carolina.

Here are my ideas:

  • Create the “End Corruption in Western NC” non-profit corporation
  • Base the organization in Rutherford County, NC
  • Create a board of directors of local community leaders in WNC
  • Raise funds to hire an executive director, attorney and 2 investigators
  • Focus initially on Rutherford County political corruption
  • Work collaboratively with law enforcement and District Attorneys, NC SBI, and FBI
  • Host a monthly update briefing publicly
  • Build a coalition of partners to support ending corruption
  • Create a tip line for phone calls and emails for anonymous tips on corruption
  • Provide tip and investigation rewards to individuals for successful prosecution
  • Create an annual award for a politician that is willing to stick their neck out to end corruption
  • Rate politicians and leaders on their transparency and corruption
