Why I'm Running - February 2014
Wake County is a great place to live. But, it won’t stay that way unless our leaders make the right decisions now. As an advocate for educators and a community volunteer, I understand that our economic prosperity depends on strong schools producing strong students.
I am ready to work hard to win this race. I come from humble beginnings, but I worked my way through a quality North Carolina public education system from kindergarten on to graduate from Carolina undergraduate and Carolina Law.
Every child in Wake County deserves that same opportunity. I am ready to take personal responsibility to ensure that every child has a chance to succeed. That’s why I’m running to represent you on the Wake County Board of Commissioners.
