Mohammed is committed to improving outcomes and that starts with restoring NC's Public Schools to their rightful place as a beacon of hope in North Carolina and fighting for policies that seek to expand our economy and diversify our workforce.
Yes. We need to restore our economy from the ground up and increase economic mobility amongst all of our families. It starts with a livable wage, restoring the middle-class tax deduction, and closing the gender pay gap.
We must create an independent redistricting commission and amendment process through NC Supreme Court. In addition, allow citizen input through legislated mandatory public comment periods with the Boards of Elections.
1) Increase funding to Smart Start to first and eliminate the wait list. 2) Reform: Increase teacher pay, reduce testing, expand advance learning opportunities to Title One Schools.
Yes. I believe in the local power and community review boards increase transparency and trust.
I am against off-shore drilling and fracking. I will oppose any effort to poison our drinking water and fragile ecosystems.
