Why I am Running

I am running for North Carolina State Representative and humbly ask for your vote. I promise to roll-up my sleeves and get to work on the issues that matter to Matthews, Mint Hill, and all corners of District 103.  Working families need someone who will fight for our schools, our local economy, and our community.
