Days in Campaign
Joe Sailers has been a resident of Huntersville for over forty years allowing him to watch the town grow from dirt roads and farms to the bustling suburb it is today. He cares about Huntersville for the good of the community.
Joe is a product of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System - graduating from North Meck High in 1967. He also attended Alexander Junior High and Statesville Road Elementary. Education is vital to a strong and successful community. Joe will be a voice for Huntersville to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School Board to ensure that our community and children are set up for success.
It's no secret that Huntersville is behind on supporting its existing transportation system. It must be a priority to catch up to where the community needs to be and make responsible decisions for future projects. The community and surrounding areas feel the effects of lacking infrastructure from commute times to car maintenance. Joe will work with the state and the county as best as Joe can to improve our town.
A growing economy helps keep tax rates lower, but that growth must be good for Huntersville, not just for the sake of growth. Nobody wants to make that I-77 daily commute and that's why Joe wants to invite new business to expand here. Joe wants to increase the Huntersville job market so you can work, live, and play here.
As a past member of Statesville Road Volunteer Fire Department, Joe has learned first hand the hard work and dedication it takes to serve the Huntersville community. First Responders will always have his support. Joe will strive to make Huntersville the safest town in North Carolina
For over twenty years as a Cost Accountant for the City of Charlotte and managing a multi-million dollar construction fund, Joe learned what it meant to be fiscally responsible. When dealing with such a fund keeping track of spending is paramount, Joe is a fiscal conservative, and Joe believes that Huntersville must be true to itself and its growth.
Huntersville is challenged with the possibility of separating itself from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System. House Bill 514 allows the smaller municipalities of Mecklenburg County - Huntersville included - to create and manage their own charter schools. Alienating the Town from CMS by setting up its own schools will put unnecessary stresses on Huntersville. We need to unify, support, and work with CMS for better schools and not take on the job ourselves.
