I believe that North Carolina should be a land of opportunity where everyone can reach their God given potential. This is best realized by advocating for entrepreneurship, supporting small businesses, and reducing regulatory and tax burdens in order to grow our economy. Small businesses are the economic drivers of this state, which means that hiring employees should be an easy and seamless process. Making North Carolina business friendly means reducing regulations and taxation that cause unpredictability in the market. While North Carolina boasts some of the most attractive and growth ready population centers in the United States, we must continue our recent strides to increase economic opportunity. A focus on achieving business friendly legislation coupled with investment in education will result in a healthy and vibrant North Carolina.
