I grew up in Henderson County. It's where I want to raise a family and it's where I want to retire. Being raised here taught me a lot about life and shaped me into the person I am today. So much of what I learned here and my time at Appalachian State University has given me the courage to represent Henderson County, being a voice in Raleigh as an advocate and representative of our home. 


My goal as Henderson County’s Representative is to make sure we have a strong conservative voice in Raleigh, and I'm proud of the work our conservatives have been able to accomplish with the majority, but we need to make sure we continue this path.  


When I am given the opportunity to serve the citizens of Henderson County in Raleigh, I will continue to make sure our voice is heard by advocating for election integrity, lower taxes, economic development, strengthening our education system, in addition to continuing work to protect our religious liberties, our 2nd amendment rights, and the right to life for the unborn.


Ronald Reagan said “There are no easy answers, but there are simple answers. We must have the courage to do what we know is morally right.” The answers to our county, state, and nation’s problems lie in the conservative principles that made us great. I’ll continue to fight on behalf of our county in Raleigh to make sure those conservative principles are followed. I ask for your support, your vote, and most importantly, your prayers.
