It’s an honor to serve you and to represent our community’s best interests by making jobs, health care and education our State’s top priorities.

  • Created over 600,000 new jobs statewide with the Triangle’s unemployment at 3.5%, an 18 year low.
  • $5 billion in total tax cuts for working families and businesses.
  • Rated the #1 Best State for Business by Forbes Magazine.
  • Largest teacher pay increase in the Nation. Average 19.2% pay increase for teachers; average teacher salaries now over $53,600.
  • Highest 4-year high school graduation rate inWake County history.
  • Making college affordable by guaranteeing no tuition hikes for your first 4 years.

As Senior Chair of the House Appropriations Committee I have passed balanced budgets, lowered our State’s debt, insured our “AAA” bond rating, and made investments to spur economic growth. Our most important investment has been to increase public school funding by $2.5 billion including the largest teacher pay raise in the Nation.

I will keep working to create more high quality jobs for our community as we increase investments in education to ensure our students are ready to compete in the global economy. With your support, I will continue to seek solutions that bring people together and move North Carolina forward.

Please know I will appreciate your vote on November 6th.
