The right to vote and the exercising of that right is an important step in putting the voice of the people back into City government. I just hope that the majority of the electorate exercise that right wisely, choosing a candidate that truly supports all the people all of the time.

At the Oct 4, 2022 City Council meeting, several speakers during the Public Comments portion of the meeting called out David Knight for LYING to the public. We are amazed his nose hasn't grown several sizes longer just like Pinocchio! Frank Hielema pointed out...

STOP LYING ABOUT CACs!

STOP LYING ABOUT CACs!

I want to clarify some misinformation that continues to be spread, from this council, about CACs and their role in Raleigh’s rezoning process.

David Knight must cease and desist immediately.

David Knight must cease and desist immediately.

At a candidate forum last week, David Knight falsely accused Livable Raleigh of being a Super PAC (Political Action Committee). We’re NOT. We’re a registered 501(c)(4) non-profit organization. PACs are organizations like the “NC Property Rights Fund” and “Triangle Government Alliance” who together supported Knight’s 2019 campaign with spending of nearly $70,000 during an election where Knight got over 70% of his campaign financing from the development industry.

It has been noted that there is a lack of civility at council in addressing Raleigh’s runaway growth. What is the root cause of that lack of civility? Could it start with the name-calling by the mayor and Councilor Knight who refer to their opposition in the pejorative use of Activist and Radical Activist? Could it be fueled by Councilor Knight who refers to citizens who dissent with giving a city staffer unlimited speaking time during the 1-minute public comments period as rude, entitled folks?

David Knight is the one misleading the public.

I would like to correct some statements that were made by Mr. Knight at the Sept 20th Work Session. Mr. Knight totally twisted the work of the CACs. The only one misleading the public is Mr. Knight.
