Job creation is my top priority.
As the son of a North Carolina public school teacher, I strongly believe an excellent education is the right of every child.
North Carolinians are reliant on dependable sources of energy in nearly every aspect of our lives.
As an avid outdoorsman and dad, I believe we have a responsibility to protect our environment and leave our community better than we found it. This is critical to preserving our quality of life for future generations.
From my first days in office, I have worked tirelessly to address the root causes of gun violence. Enough is enough.
As a nation, we’ve made many promises to our fellow citizens. Through our entitlement programs, retirees are guaranteed a pension through Social Security and access to health care through Medicare, as well as support for the poor and disabled. My mother, a former public school teacher, relies on this support in her retirement.
The tax code was last reformed in 1986 and is currently around 4 million words long. The degree of difficulty to comply with this outdated system is unnecessary and unfair. With far too many hard-working individuals living paycheck to paycheck, tax reform is needed to lower rates for everyone and allow you to keep more of your hard-earned income.
