Like all of us here in Greensboro and around the country, I have been watching as people protested the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. I am completely saddened, disgusted, and angry at what is going on in our country right now. I am saddened because as a black man I have tried to live my life NOT as a “color”.
The quality of a child’s educational opportunities should never be determined by their zip code. My record shows that I am committed to supporting teachers, families, and children throughout Guilford County. As I have toured many schools in District 5, their physical condition is of particular concern to me. Count on me to support long overdue improvements and appropriate funding for our schools
Rising crime in our county affects every one of us, regardless of our district. Law enforcement agencies are short on personnel and budgets are tight. Count on me to fight for our men and women in uniform by working for adequate pay and proper training.
Our current Board of Commissioners has done a stellar job at keeping our tax rate steady for the past several years. However, our property tax rate is still above the state average. Count on me to continue the good work of our current board, while working to keep our property taxes in line with other counties our size.
Guilford County is currently enjoying a robust economy, indicated by excellent employment opportunities that are available to our citizens. However, there is always room for improvement! Count on me to support measures that will continue to attract companies and corporations, bringing high-paying, long-term jobs with them to Guilford County.
Whatever dollar amount you can contribute to keep Guilford County moving forward is greatly appreciated!
