Experience (35 words max) Twenty-six years’ experience working in leadership for Mecklenburg County, I know budgeting and finance. Currently, I coach leaders to build teams and foster collaboration. Launched Citizens in Action NC, working on voter protection and redistricting.
3 favorite endorsements for this election League of Conservation Voters. Also received Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate distinction.
A quality education is the foundation to success, and I will work to restore Public Education as a priority. I will fight to protect voter rights; along with our ability to hold representatives accountable through fair redistricting.
The state should play a role in encouraging businesses to pay every North Carolina worker a living wage; allowing affordable housing, childcare, and healthcare on 40 hours a week schedule.
I support legislative efforts to establish a nonpartisan board or commission to draw district boundaries. Districts should be compact, contiguous, preserve communities of interest; ignoring partisan, racial, or incumbency biases.
Pay our teachers a competitive salary and incentivize their continued growth and development. I would support a bond referendum to build new school facilities.
Yes, I believe communities should be empowered to address problems locally and design community based solutions.
I am opposed to off-shore drilling as both an environmental and economic threat.
