Issues We All Face

ISSUES we ALL FACE:

1. FIX THE ROADS! To accommodate any more growth, the northeast Charlotte region needs Eastfield Road, Mallard Creek Road, and others widened so we don't have five mile backups every day. NOTE to DOT - I will be visiting you my first week in office to find out WHY the Mallard Creek Road/Sugar Creek Road, and Graham Street interchange has NEVER been finished after YEARS! (UPDATE July 2020) Someone must have heard an earful because the intersection is finally being finished off. How many years did we wait?

2. MAKE HEALTH INSURANCE AFFORDABLE! We CAN get dozens, if not a hundred, new companies operating in the state with basic catastrophic plans, with riders, and finally have health insurance everyone can afford. Forget government solutions. We need to pave the road so insurers can compete and we aren't left with just ONE or TWO companies. After 35 years working with insurance firms, hospitals, doctors and other providers I KNOW we can make that happen.

3. IMPROVE EDUCATION! How? I want to see teacher assistants in every class so smaller work groups (proven to be best for student performance) help our kids reach their goals. Teachers, assistants and others need to be paid more so we retain them. And let's get felons out of the classroom. We don't need that distraction. End all lobbying our school boards, and disallow former board members, principals, and superintendents from securing lucrative private sector jobs by supporting contracts while in office.

4. GROW NORTH CAROLINA! Read all about policies and ideas on my other web pages. We can surely imitate what has been done in other states to successfully transplant those firms which will provide not only good paying jobs, but also training opportunities for those without skills.

5. DEADLY DRIVERS! Those who live in my district in the Highland Creek and Eastfield area know that at night our interstate loop I-485 has been turned into a drag strip. Recently, a car traveling at high speed along the western leg killed an entire family when it collided and also killed others. We need consistent Trooper enforcement at night so that these drag racers are identified and their licenses revoked appropriately. People are dying. This means increasing our budget for justice services at the state level.
