Position/philosophy statement How we invest shows our priorities, we must build a strong foundation for educating our children, our healthcare and re/uptraining displaced workers.
Over the next ten years our state will undergo dramatic change, first to recover from the social and economic changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic and the rapid change brought about by changes in delivery of services and employment. We should embrace these changes and prepare our people to drive our development forward. The current general assembly Republican members have driven down our standards in educating our children. Prevented our most vulnerable people access to affordable health care and eroded the safety net in the face of potential emergency economic disasters. The overall effect of this is not economic growth for our state and not economic security for our most vulnerable people.
Access to quality, affordable healthcare for all North Carolina people and that all our people are able to access the services they need for a dignified quality of life regardless of their economic circumstances or physical and mental abilities.

Re/up-training our displaced workforce to prepare them for secure employment

Making sure our education system embraces the need to provide an accessible education for all our people at every stage of life from the first 2,000 days thru job transitions.

We must invest in recruiting, training and retaining the professional educators and staff our public education system requires. We must invest in the infrastructure that supports our education system. That includes access to stable broadband in all our communities. The technology exits to get this done now and the need will remain beyond the present COVID-19 situation. Our education system must make the investments that will ensure our children will receive an education that exceeds the current standards so that they are prepared for world class employment opportunities. This is the standard we must set and achieve for all our communities.
Every school receiving public funding must exceed minimum standards for student outcomes. That means the lower achieving student meets minimum standards for students transitioning to the next level of education or public life.
We must create our physical and cyber infrastructure to attract quality employment creating entities and allow our home grown economic growth to flourish. We can not forget that one of our greatest attractions in the state are our natural coast, Piedmont and Mountain attractions. And the expansion of access to affordable broadband in our business environment enhances the experience of our businesses, workers and visitors.

We must invest the experts qualified to interpret and advise on the best way to identify and isolate and eliminate polluting elements, educate the agricultural, manufacturing and general public regarding the standards to maintain our best quality standards for our air, water and general land environment. Our policies must be to eliminate elements that pollute our air, our drinking and recreational water and our land. Our next priority must be to hold those responsible for destructive activities accountable for reversing and or mitigating the polluting conditions.
Our redistricting should be nonpartisan in 2021. Our communities are not balanced but our political boundaries are engineered to exploit these self organized communities to the advantage of the people who drew the maps. In essence they are choosing their voters. The proper way to design districts is to as much as possible have balanced communities so that people chose the policies that serve their interests in the long term.

We should invest in our cyber and public works like the old Rural Electrification Association. The need for these improvements are made abundantly clear by the recent demonstration that more than 60% of our students lack quality affordable broadband. Our cellular networks are less than acceptable in some rural communities and we are not advancing our support of no polluting motor vehicle infrastructure at a rapid enough pace. Our electrical grid is still very dependent on fossil fuel
Our elections are less than .0001 in danger of voter fraud, the fraud is performed by a segment who would maintain power despite our best intentions. All eligible voter should be automatically registered to vote. Where upon they are given a voter registration number. That is their voter identification. Anyone who Denys an eligible person Their right to vote abridges a person’s unique ability to self determination. An infrastructure of voting equipment must be maintained to for security/integrity
