We are at a crossroads as a state and a nation. Government regulations and over-taxation have hindered our economy and its ability to recover from the ongoing recession. I'm proud of the work the legislature has done in trying to right the ship by removing burdensome government red tape, implementing tax reform and passing a host of legislative initiatives aimed at helping our small businesses. We've accomplished this while still supporting the most important part of our education system, our teachers, with a pay raise and more money directed to the classroom. However, our work is far from finished.
I ask for your support as I continue to work hard for the citizens of Carteret and Jones counties.
