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 several of the schools in District 5, their physical condition is disappointing and of great concern to me. Three hundred million dollars is a good start toward bringing our schools up to date and I support this bond. However, it is not enough. Count on me to be open minded to future facilities bonds for long overdue improvements and appropriate funding for our school
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, proper training, better equipment. You can count on me to fully fund our law enforcement officers and fully fund keeping our SRO's in our schools.
To be clear, I will never defund our police!
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 to Guilford County.
Whatever dollar amount you can contribute to keep Guilford County moving forward is greatly appreciated!
