Position/philosophy statement Rachel is bringing common sense back to the State House and is committed to bringing people together so that we are all better off.
For too long in Raleigh, politicians have given tax cuts for corporations and millionaires which means less money for our teachers and our children. In Raleigh, I am fighting for our middle class and working to ensure that our tax policy is focused on working families.
Many communities and North Carolinians have been experiencing a great deal of pain, especially recently. It is difficult to witness and experience, and I am committed to listening and affecting real change for North Carolina’s people. To improve safety in these communities, we must prioritize spending to empower and support community leaders and groups, as well as increase transparency and accountability. I supported HB 916, which would enable cities to establish citizen review boards to review disciplinary actions involving allegations of misconduct by law enforcement officers, and I will continue to support other legislation that will help communities heal and become safer by putting power in the hands of the community’s people. I will also fight for universal background checks for people that want to buy guns, as well as expanding Medicaid so that all survivors have access to critical care and the support and services of forensic nurses.
