NC House District 98

Democratic Party

Election Date
November 3, 2020

Why are you running for office? 
Since 2010, North Carolina has been run by a party more interested in ensuring they are re-elected than working to build a better North Carolina. I ran in 2018 to help break the majority and give our Governor veto power. Now, I’m running for re-election to ensure I can continue to represent my community in issues relating to healthcare, public education, gun law reform, transportation and voting rights.

What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
The towns of North Mecklenburg – Huntersville, Cornelius and Davidson are rapidly growing. Our transportation infrastructure is failing our citizens as well. Projects take too long from the planning to implementation stages. The state legislature needs to put more funding into building roads and modernizing our infrastructure to ensure the safety of the community and ease of transportation.

How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
In the 11 months, I have been in office, I have been committed to bridging the partisan divide. This is done by making choices that are based on data and not on what issue garners the most media attention or can be used in attack ads. I make the choice to see my colleagues on the other side of the aisle as people and not the enemy.

Who is your hero?
My mom who passed away in February 2019.

What are your hobbies?
Reading, cooking, watching movies.

What is the most recent book you read?
The Last Romantics Tara Conklin

Do you have any kids/pets/talking houseplants?
We are blended family with 5 kids and 1 rescue dog named Ashley.

What question do you wish we’d asked, and what is your answer?
What issue is most important to you?
Gun homicides are on the rise in Mecklenburg County. North Carolina needs to pass legislation that will require a background check on all gun sales, pass extreme risk protection laws and strengthen laws around safe storage of guns.
