Economic Development

North Carolina has the 9th largest economy and in order for that to continue, our government should work alongside small businessmen and women so that they can thrive and provide jobs to spur economic growth. Personally, I’m a small business owner and I know what it’s like to have to jump through hoops just to get a business off the ground and I want to eliminate as many obstacles as possible so that entrepreneurs can realize can flourish. As the chairs of the Franklin County Economic Committee and the nonprofit group The Committee of 100, I made it a priority to work with local and state officials to bring more jobs and economic opportunities into our area. And as your state senator, I will continue to make economic growth and jobs a priority.
