Jessica with two of her biggest supporters (Jessica's Mom and Grandma)
Jessica has spent most of her professional career as an advocate for workers as a labor and employment attorney. She knows that economic growth requires an educated workforce and a strong Pre K-12 school system. She has a track record of supporting job creation as a county commissioner and attracting businesses with a diverse pool of talent. She believes that early childhood development programs, a strong K-12 school system, and a robust community college system are key for workforce development.
"I am ready to fight for livable wages, safe and healthy work environments, and family-friendly policies. North Carolina workers deserve an advocate that puts them first every day. We need to move beyond talk and complacency to action on behalf of workers."
