Because we do have a robust economy, the population in our district is growing an average of sixty-four people per day. In the next decade, our population is expected to double. We need to ensure that our DOT road funds are not mismanaged, or worse, robbed to pay for special interest programs. Having smart policies in place to protect our major thoroughfares will not only help increase traffic flow but make our roads safer for motorists. To achieve those goals, we need to support the superhighway plans for US 1 North and the four lane of 401 to Louisburg, which will make our area attractive to businesses and create more jobs for North Carolinians.
