Send a builder to #WinForNC

Now is a time to roll up our sleeves, and get to work to #WinForNC. COVID-19 has created significant economic challenges for our community. The last thing the General Assembly needs is more career politicians. It needs leaders who know how to build careers and rebuild an economy. I'm a builder. Whether it's building a home, building a business, or building a local economy, I know what it takes to work hard and build opportunity from the ground up. And that's why I'm running. I want to build better lives and economic opportunities for businesses, families, and community members across the 7th NC House District. To help me #WinForNC visit
