Issues

My platform focuses on three areas that are crucial in building a strong foundation for our families.

In order for our communities to thrive, we must:

  • Put education first

    • Ensure educational equity in all public schools.
    • Provide competitive pay for teachers, administration and support staff that reaches national average
    • Support and provide incentives for training and education programs for teachers at all levels
    • At the state level, provide opportunities for funding for critical infrastructure needs (e.g. school bonds)
  • Improve access to quality healthcare

    • Expand Medicaid
    • Advocate for children and individuals with special needs
    • Support the Affordable Care Act that provides comprehensive health care benefits including preventive, maternity and mental illness care
    • Partner with healthcare professionals, families, communities to address critical needs
  • Establish a sustainable workforce

    • Advocate for employee work protections and promote a living wage in NC
    • Partner with community colleges, vocational training, universities, community leaders, businesses and families to ensure students are exposed to a variety of career pathways
    • Promote apprenticeships and workforce readiness
    • Look for successful models in NC and other states to learn best practices

Please share your ideas and thoughts and let’s work together for the benefit of North Carolinians.

  1. I hope you’ll consider adding this to your platform:
    Ratify the Equal Rights Amendment to ensure that women have constitutional protection.

    1. Thanks for your feedback, Robbie. I completely agree with you. My values are always the foundation of my campaign including addressing equality and equity. I will continue to watch the work of you and others on the ERA and I will support this constitutional protection for women.
