"I'm running to be your NC State Senator because I'm committed to improving the lives of the people in Southeastern North Carolina. I'm a pastor, a former state employee and a long-serving at-large Robeson County School Board member. I know what it's like to put in the long hours to make the changes needed. Together we can do this and make the 13th District a safer, healthier and more vibrant place for our grandchildren to our grandparents. Join me so we all will have a 13th we can believe in!"
