My colleagues and I in the General Assembly 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. While the economy prospers across the state, it is important to recognize the unique challenges that rural areas and areas with rapid growth face. District 11 represents a diverse economy with both rural areas and areas with rapid growth.
I have experienced the challenges that growth presents and understand the need for dynamic solutions. Balanced growth is essential to this district and means appealing to all aspects of our diverse economy- small businesses, agriculture and larger companies that supply our district with hundreds of jobs.
As I have done on the Nash County Board of Commissioners and in the North Carolina House, I will continue work with other state leaders to adopt business-friendly policies that drive private sector investment and encourage economic growth in all types of communities to create more jobs in all areas of our state.
