Beaufort County Man Running For Congress

A Beaufort County man is now registered to file for Congress.

Republican Ashley Woolard showed up to the Beaufort County Board of Elections Wednesday, surrounded by family and friends, and cast his bid for the first congressional district of North Carolina.

That means he'll try to unseat incumbent US Representative G.K Butterfield, a Democrat from Wilson in the general election.

34 year old Woolard lives in Washington and is an East Carolina graduate.

He told WITN his number one priority is bringing jobs to the area.

Woolard is the vice-president of his families insurance company and prides himself on being a small local business man.

He's also the chairman of the Beaufort County Republican Party.

    Obama Snake Oil co on Feb 12, 2010 at 10:01 PM, Ok, if you want to post as me, let me help you. Select Washington from witn "Location:" That is right below the "First Name". Click copy...go back to location and "paste". Try it, its not that hard, unless you are a blind liberal and have to be told everything to do by your party. I suggest you make snow cream today instead of koolaid.

    : Obama Snake Oil CO on Feb 11, 2010 at 10:06 PM, if you are going to spew nonsense, at least learn how to spell Washington. Oooppps, apparently, you only know of DC. God forbid you use Washington since you apparently, don't believe in the bible, god or America. Sorry your little progressives failed in the first year, just like air america.....I will say a prayer for you....OSOC.

    My life partner, Bob, and I will vote for him!

    The Wise One, we will agree on this one. We need a "real" change of leadership in DC to help bring jobs back. Why? Spending, uncertainty, terrorists, it is a serious time in America. With some wanting communism on the progressive left, the left, the middle and the right, we need balance in DC. That will start this year, however, when one party can dominate the agenda, we are lucky the constitution knew this, and tried to thrawrt this off if it happened. You should learn about George Soros, he is incredibly power hungry and now has the reins in the whitehouse. He would do to us, what he did in several countries for his greed of power with his money. Like I mentioned, it is a serious time in America. Time to make a few adjustments.....OSOC
