North Carolina House Representative
In November of 2012, I had the privilege of being elected to serve in the NC House of Representatives. I decided to run for public office because I felt as if North Carolina needed a new direction. We needed to bring a more responsible approach to the operations of state government, and I wanted to help make a difference.
Since taking office in January of 2013, I have worked to support legislation that will make government more efficient and allow the private sector to grow. As a fiscal conservative, I believe that it is the private sector, not the government, that creates opportunity for our citizens. That is why I have made it a goal to take a responsible, pro-business approach to solving problems facing our State.
North Carolina is still in the process of recovering from the Great Recession, but I believe our economy is on the mend. By reforming our tax code and working to make government more efficient, I believe we are creating a better economic environment within our State. This will help to encourage more economic activity, which will result in more job opportunities for our citizens.
Since taking office I have worked with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to help promote sensible legislation. Working to improve public education is something that I have taken very seriously. It is important that we promote sound educational opportunities for our children, and that is something that I will continue working to achieve.
As a member of the NC House, my goal is to work hard to make the right decisions as to what is best for our citizens. Listening to the concerns of my constituents is a top priority. Although I am a Republican, I place the best interest of my constituents above partisan politics.
It truly is an honor and a privilege to serve as a Representative in the NC House. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any question or concerns that you would like to share. Thank you for visiting my web site, and I hope to hear from you soon.
