To improve the lives of all North Carolinians, I believe we must work swiftly to improve civic engagement by electing politicians who will always vote in the interest of of you, the constituent, not big donors and specialist interests. We have a government that does not serve its people. With Congressional approval ratings at an all-time low, now is the time for real, lasting change and an end to divisive, partisan politics. While economists will tell you our country has recovered from the 2008 recession, North Carolina has fallen behind under majority Republican leadership. Growth in other sectors has not made up for thousands of lost jobs in manufacturing, textiles, and agriculture, while our population continues to grow and more jobs are lost to international trade deals. Our elected leaders sit idly while North Carolina suffers. Now is the time when we must develop new solutions to generate economic growth throughout our Old North State.
As a Greensboro native raised by hardworking North Carolinians, I will fight for the people of North Carolina and for policies that reflect our values, improve the quality of our lives, and ensure economic prosperity in our great state.
