Access to a quality education for every child is essential to growing our economy and helping Western North Carolina thrive. Better students develop into a better workforce and I believe that we owe it to our children and teachers to recommit to public schools. North Carolina is ranked among the lowest in the country regarding expenditures both for per-pupil and teacher pay, this needs to change. We have to raise teacher pay, provide incentives for new teachers and expand broadband access to students and schools in rural areas.

Join the fight!

I need your help to make Western North Carolina the community we continue to be proud to call home.
