Jobs & Strong Local Economies

As a business owner, I know the challenges our small businesses and corporations faced this year. I understand pandemic recovery should emphasize the need for small business loans, and get hardworking North Carolinians back to work. 

In the General Assembly, I worked hard to provide over $125 million in small business assistance loans, and a plan to save jobs and get North Carolinians back to work. 

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. District 11 represents a diverse economy with both rural communities and rapidly growing urban areas. It’s important we have leadership that recognizes the dynamic needs of different industries. 

As I have done on the Nash County Board of Commissioners and in the North Carolina House, I will continue to 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.
