Welcome to my campaign website. I hope you will visit regularly to see my current newsletter, learn more about state government and voice your concerns and opinions by sending me an email or by posting on my Facebook or Twitter pages.
I'm just completing my 10th term in the North Carolina House representing the 56th district comprising precincts in Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Hillsborough and Orange County. Click here to see a map of the District. I look forward to serving the people of Orange County in the 2017-18 session.
I am proud to live in a state with a history of moving forward with public policy that benefits all. I can't and won't let the erosion of the past six years destroy the progress of the previous 60. I'll fight to improve education - early childhood through our superb community college and UNC systems - expand access to heath and mental health care, protect the environment, extend social justice, reform our criminal justice system, celebrate our diversity and build an economy for all.
I'll work to restore North Carolina to its noble motto, "...where the weak grow strong and the strong grow great."
It is an honor and a privilege to represent you. Please call on me anytime for help accessing state services, to comment on issues or to make suggestions.
Thank you for your support.
