People ask me why I am running. I am one of three children who was raised by a working class, single mother who worked as a truck stop waitress for tips. Growing up, we never knew the struggles our mother faced daily. Now, she is 83 years old living on a fixed income.
Lobbyists, special interests, and corporate PACs control Washington. I feel led to fight for North Carolina families. I feel led to fight for you, the hard working constituents of District 13. Washington, DC politicians have forgotten about us. I'm running to be the public servant we need representing us. I see our communities, neighbors, and friends struggling in the richest country God has ever created. We live in Two Americas: the extreme rich and everybody else.
With your support, I am running for Congress to lower the healthcare costs that are bankrupting our families. I am running to strengthen our public schools. I am running to cut middle class taxes to help our families and small businesses succeed. I am running because the working class doesn't have a voice in Washington, D.C. I truly understand your needs, because I am part of the working class. I will focus on the needs of my district. I will work for you.
