What is the top issue in your race and how would you address it? Economy, Southeastern North Carolina needs jobs. I believe my experience as a businessman and a Legislator will help in creating small businesses and assist other businesses in relocating to our area. As a member of the Legislative Business Caucus, we are now working on several projects that will be beneficial to North Carolina, especially our area. What do you consider your best accomplishment in this office? Why? As Chairman of the House Agriculture Committee, I have helped Southeastern Community College with their Bio-Tech fuel program as well as other Community College projects. I have also helped with Senior Citizen Centers and Law Enforcement to help provide safe neighborhoods for our area. I How do you gauge the will of the people? by keeping an "open door policy". My offices in Raleigh and Whiteville are always open and I welcome anyone to contact me with their needs and concerns.
