Experience (35 words max) JOB COUNSELOR FOR YEARS GETTING FARM WORKERS IN JOBS NO LONGER AVAILABLE ON FARMS. CPR TRAINED. I KNOW HOW TO FIND JOBS AND I AM CREATIVE IN GETTING THEM. WHEN ONE DOOR CLOSES I FIND ANOTHER. I AM NOT A QUITTER.
3 favorite endorsements for this election THOSE WHO KNOW ME ARE PULLING FOR ME CAUSE THEY KNOW I AM A GO GETTER WHEN IT COMES TO FINDING NEW RESOURCES TO USE IN LENOIR COUNTY.
JOBS, JOBS, AND NEW INDUSTRY. WE HAVE LOST MANY FARM JOBS DUE TO MECHANIZATION AND MANY ARE LOOKING FOR JOBS OR HIGHER PAYING JOBS. LENOIR COUNTY HAS NOT KEPT PACE WITH SURROUNDING COUNTIES AND THATS A SHAME. WE HAVE LOST OUR MALL AND OVER 20 THOUSAND RESIDENTS.
WE HAVE MANY HOMES HERE THAT ARE FOR SALE OR RENT. HOUSING IS NOT MY MAIN FOCUS. PERHAPS SOME IMPROVEMENTS ARE NEEDED AND HOPE RESTORATION IS HELPING THERE.
SEEK BUSINESSES AND COMPANIES THAT WILL LOCATE HERE. THIS HAS BEEN ONE OF OUR WEAKEST POINTS FOR YEARS. THIS WILL NOT BE ALLOWED IF I HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT. AGGRESSIVE JOB DEVELOPER IS NEEDED TO ADVANCE.
I WOULD LIKE IMMIGRANTS TO BE LEGAL. OR HAVE WORK PERMITS AND THEY RETURN HOME WHEN THEIR WORK IS OVER. MOST ARE GREAT FOLKS.ALL
ALL I DO WILL BE TRANSPARENT. I AM ONE WHO SUPPORTS ALL LAW ENFORCEMENT.
