*A Champion for NC*
Don has been working tirelessly to address the needs of residents in eastern North Carolina amid an incredibly polarizing political environment.
During the 2019 legislative session, he championed efforts to implement Raise the Age in NC, provided law enforcement with the tools to assist in cases of abduction and suspect apprehension, and protected military and veterans through the passage of the NC Military and Veterans Act of 2019. Don refuses to give up on our students, workers or those who are in need of access to a healthcare provider.
Don believes we must do everything possible to support East Carolina University becoming a national research institution. He endorses a state-of-the-art medical school and more access to affordable healthcare while making sure our hospital is stable. These remain his top priorities as well as job creation across eastern North Carolina, especially in the rural communities.
