*An Effective Voice*
Don has been working tirelessly to address the needs of residents in eastern North Carolina in the midst of an extremely polarizing political environment.
During the 2017 legislative session, he championed efforts to revitalize the North Carolina Global TransPark, expand the Healthy Food Small Retailer Program, establish November as Veterans’ History Awareness Month, and pass bills developing strategic plans for protecting our military installations and improving veteran services. 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 supports a state-of-the-art medical school and more access to affordable healthcare while making sure our hospital is stable. These will be his priorities as well as job creation across eastern North Carolina especially, in the rural communities. We need healthy families with more money in their pockets. We must work to rebuild our economy one job at a time.
