Drinking Water: Dan Bishop's Role In NC's Least Covered, Most Important Issue This Election
October 20, 2016
The Scher Campaign released a video on how Duke Energy's Coal Ash ponds have put all of Mecklenburg County's drinking supply, our drinking water, at risk of contamination. The video was shot after a recent WSOC 9 investigation uncovered high levels of Arsenic levels in Mountain Island Lake, a main tributary for all of Charlotte's drinking water.
Where was Rep. Bishop on this issue? It’s reasonable to expect that he would have used his role on Public Utilities Committee to do everything he could to mitigate these risks to the water all of us rely on to bathe in, cook with and drink. But instead, Rep. Bishop benefited his campaign coffers with a $2000 check from the Duke Energy PAC in February and then voted in June to allow Duke Energy to delay cleaning up it Coal Ash sites near our region's drinking water and at sites across the state.
We believe safe, clean drinking water is every one’s right regardless of political affiliation and if that’s important to you as well, Lloyd will be your voice in Raleigh. Unfortunately, $2000 was apparently all it took to make Rep. Bishop Duke Energy’s voice. You don't have to accept that. Early voting is going on now and election day is on Nov. 8. You have choice. Who will you send to Raleigh: the guy who will be your voice or the guy who's already proven that he's the voice of Duke Energy?

If you have not already looked at this video, please take a minute to view Lloyd's important take on our drinking water and why you can trust that, unlike Rep. Bishop, he'll put your safety over the financial interests of Duke Energy.
