Democratic Candidate for District 1
As County Commissioner, I will be a voice for children, families - in all the forms they take - and the shared values that bind us to each other in Buncombe County.
I believe in ensuring that our schools are among the best in North Carolina, creating living wage jobs, and working to make our community healthier.
As a working mom and non-profit leader, I know firsthand what’s at stake for Buncombe County families right now. But we do not have to accept childhood poverty, underfunded schools, and a lack of affordable housing. It won’t be easy to solve these local problems. But we can and we must.
As Executive Director of the Campaign for Southern Equality I've led efforts to solve problems that at times seemed unwinnable - like striking down Amendment One and winning marriage equality across the South. I'm ready to bring that experience and leadership to County Commission.
We need new voices in our local politics, a commitment to finding common ground, and a County Commission that better reflects our community.
