Talking With Folks in the Tenth District

Although it might not be in person, one of my favorite parts of serving the Tenth District is meeting our area's young leaders. This week I had the opportunity to join North Carolina Jaycee's Virtual Convention, where I had the opportunity to discuss the issues that are important to North Carolina and what it means to be a young leader in our communities. Click here to watch a brief clip of my opening remarks.

Wasting the American People's Time

The so-called 'crisis' at the Postal Service is nothing more than a conspiracy theory advanced by Democrats in a desperate effort to increase enthusiasm among their voters for November's election. While the House could have been working on legislation to help the millions of Americans still struggling because of the ongoing pandemic, Speaker Pelosi and House Democrats instead brought the House back into session last week to vote on a bill that will go nowhere and fix nothing. It was a tremendous waste of time. Click here to learn the truth about the so-called ‘crisis’ at the Postal Service.

Respond to the Census Today

Every ten years since 1790, the U.S. has counted its population via the Census and that process is ongoing again this year. By responding to the 2020 Census you are helping to ensure that our communities here in the Tenth District receive all the resources we need. The information collected in the Census determines the funding for our schools, firefighters, hospitals, and so much more. Thank you to all who have already participated and remember to remind your family and neighbors that they can respond today online, over the phone, or by mail. Respond today by visiting or call 844-330-2020.

What I Have Been Reading

Two Lincoln County deputies shot; suspect killed

Denver Citizen

Please join me in praying for the two Lincoln County deputies that were injured in the line of duty on Monday. Every day, our law enforcement officers put their lives on the line to keep us safe. I am thankful for all of our Tenth District officers and everything they do to protect our communities.

Losing a leader

Tryon Daily Bulletin 

I  was deeply saddened to hear that former Polk County commissioner Ted Owens passed away earlier this week. I will always be grateful for Ted’s friendship and remember his dedication to his community and the people who called it home. Please join me in praying for his family, his loved ones, and for the Polk County community as they mourn.
