What a difference three months makes!
Here’s why I’m running for NC House 43:
Making change for hardworking families in North Carolina as we push through COVID is in our grasp. That change starts right here in eastern Cumberland County.
While our schools are open, we need them working at capacity. We need well-paid teachers, nurses, bus drivers, and mental health professionals so that our children can get the support they need.
As a social worker, I have a responsibility to make sure everyone can thrive, that everyone's God-given dignity is protected, and to build a better community for everyone regardless of who they are, where they’re from, where they live, where they work, or who they love. That means fighting to make sure that everyone receives fair pay for a fair day's work, has safe working conditions and housing, and no one is buried under too-high healthcare or energy bills. It also means rejecting extremism and ridiculous book bans.
We need to build a prosperous future for our county, from the bottom-up AND the middle-out, from Beaver Dam, Linden, and Wade, to downtown Fayetteville, Eastover, Stedman and everywhere in between.
I never stopped fighting for our community. Since 2020, I’ve been working with our Democratic women in Cumberland County and statewide, building up the New North Carolina Project, and giving back through my regular food drives and Sweet Tea Shakespeare. Certain changes, however, can only happen in the State House.
So I ask for your support and your vote, first in our primary in May and then in the battleground general election in November. Because when we stand for right and against wrong, when we work together, we can achieve a better life for ourselves, our neighbors, and our whole community. Let's get to work!
