Jim began his political career in 1996 when he led a group of citizens protesting unfair and illogical school assignment by Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools. As a result of their efforts the Board redrew the attendance maps. Jim was asked to run for the Board of Education and won a seat in 1997. His stand against forced bussing and his opposition to the Board’s position regarding the use of race in school assignment led to a victory for neighborhood schools in Federal Court. In 2000 Jim was elected to the Mecklenburg County Commission, serving as the District 1 representative (which includes Huntersville and North Mecklenburg) for six years.
The event is sponsored by Widen I-77, a citizen’s group dedicated to widening interstate 77 with general purpose lanes, and TollFreeNC, a related organization dedicated educating voters about statewide plans for toll roads.
