3 favorite endorsements for this election Buncombe County Association of Educators; NC Association of Educators
Issues I consider as top 3 priorities include: 1) Budget increases for teacher salaries, technology, and aging infrastructure. 2) Recruitment and retention of highly qualified educators. 3) Continued improvement in campus safety and emergency preparedness.
