Since being elected to the NC Senate in 2010, creating jobs has been my top priority. I know what it takes to create jobs and I will CONTINUE to work tirelessly to ensure that good jobs are available to every North Carolinian. The most important step to creating jobs is ensuring government stays out of the way so that it is easier for businesses to start and grow. Small business is the job creating engine of our economy. I will continue to fight to cut unnecessary regulations and high tax rates so we can get our small businesses growing and get people back to work.
