Whitsett, NC – Today Rep. Jon Hardister (R-Guilford, Majority Whip) announced his intentions to seek reelection. He released the following statement:
It is an honor to announce my intentions to seek reelection for North Carolina House District 59. This is a job that I take seriously and I have been humbled by the opportunity to serve. During my tenure I have worked hard to support policies that have moved North Carolina in a positive economic direction.
North Carolina is currently recognized as having one of the best business climates in the country. Our GDP is strong, employment numbers have increased substantially, and we have maintained a sound AAA credit rating. It is important that we stay the course and continue working to bring economic prosperity to North Carolina for generations to come.
Hardister was elected as the House Majority Whip in December 2016. He currently chairs the Capital Appropriations Committee, which oversees funding for state property.
Many of the bills that Hardister has filed were bipartisan and passed the House with strong support. He recently worked on legislation to enhance suicide prevention in public schools; legislation to prevent state agencies from investing in companies that boycott Israel; legislation to allow alcohol sales before 12:00 PM on Sunday (subject to local approval); and legislation to provide transportation grants for charter schools with low-income students.
