3 favorite endorsements for this election NC League of Conservation Voters and 314 Action. Also received Moms Demand Action Gun Sense Candidate distinction.
My first priority is re-investing in the public education system that gave me so much opportunity. My second is implementing an independent redistricting process before the 2020 elections so that voters can hold us accountable.
Yes. Anyone working 40 hours a week shouldn’t have to choose between paying bills or putting food on the table. We should follow 29 other states and raise minimum wage.
It is imperative that North Carolina implements an independent redistricting process so that voters can choose their representatives, not vice-versa.
My priorities are to retain quality talent by raising teacher salaries to the national average and increasing per-pupil spending so schools can do their jobs effectively.
Yes. I support increased government transparency and empowering municipalities to determine the level of oversight.
Oppose. The damage to our robust tourism industry or our world-class beaches outweighs the benefits.
