Our state leaders have done much to drive down corporate tax rates, control government spending and implement policies that have helped our state’s economy to grow in many areas. And while we continue to enjoy a strong statewide economy, there are some areas of the state that need greater support to provide jobs and build stronger local economies.
Rural communities, in particular, face different challenges from their urban neighbors where infrastructure, including internet availability, and quality roads and education are more readily accessible. Addressing rural issues like these is imperative to enabling job growth and economic prosperity in our rural communities as well.
As I have done on the Nash County Board of Commissioners, I will work with state leaders to adopt business-friendly policies that drive private sector investment and encourage economic growth in local communities, and create more jobs in all areas of our state.
