I am seeking election to the North Carolina State Senate for one fundamental
reason -- the people of North Carolina deserve true leaders in the North Carolina General Assembly.
It is time for a change.
Our times call for responsive representation, not obstructionist tactics such as has happened under the Republican leadership of the North Carolina General Assembly. Enough is enough. Now is the time for a new state senator for Avery, Burke and Caldwell counties.
I believe our citizens should rightfully question why anyone would seek or accept a leadership position in these times to only attack our state’s poor and most vulnerable people and use underhanded tactics to disenfranchise voters.
This is not leadership. This is chaos. The time is now for citizen legislators to replace the career politicians beholden to the special interests that have taken over our state. I seek to be your State Senator. Please visit the rest of this website to learn how, by working together, me can make the North Carolina General Assembly “The People’s Capitol."
