We want to build a thriving economy that provides opportunity and a high quality of life for every North Carolinian. While education can open the door to these opportunities, we need an economic development strategy that places homegrown North Carolina businesses first. In Raleigh, Rachel sponsored legislation to expand broadband access to every community in the state, something we can all agree is basic infrastructure in this new, digital age.
Economic development should always be a central focus of elected leaders, making sure that North Carolina provides a pro-business climate that fosters innovation. As a small business owner herself, Rachel knows the challenges many businesses face and as your legislator she works with anyone who has pragmatic ideas to recruit quality jobs, regardless of political differences.
