“Serving my community and our great State has been an honor. We still have significant work to do on critical issues impacting our community. I will continue to fight for funds to fully educate our children in public schools and pay our educators what they deserve, fight for women’s rights and reproductive healthcare freedom, and keep working to tackle the housing and infrastructure issues unique to our district.” said Budd. “The North Carolina General Assembly should be focused on the needs of working families, and I intend to keep my sleeves rolled up and do just that.”

Originally recruited in 2021 by Rachel Hunt for District 103, Laura Budd has been a dedicated community member and small business leader in the Charlotte our district for over 20 years. State Senator Rachel Hunt continues to endorse Laura, “I look forward to seeing Rep. Budd faithfully continue to serve the people of Mecklenburg County for another term. We need to solve complex issues in North Carolina, and I know her background as a business leader and mother brings a unique and powerful voice to the discussions that shape our future. Additionally, in a building where men are the primary decision-makers, I’m proud to see women like her have a seat at the table. Rep. Budd is a strong leader who values reproductive healthcare, quality education, and jobs that will grow North Carolina’s economy. She has my full support.” – Rachel Hunt (Current NC Senate District 42, Candidate for NC Lt. Governor)

Laura has dedicated her life to public service and advocating for the needs of others. She will continue to use her voice in Raleigh and fight for our community with your support!
