Senator Edwards Recognized by Transylvania County Leaders

Senator Edwards was recently formally recognized by the Transylvania County Board of Commissioners through Resolution #32-2018 "Expressing Appreciation for Legislative Support." The resolution recognizes his efforts to secure state funding for the clean-up of the French Broad River after experiencing significant flooding earlier this year.

It also recognizes Sen. Edwards efforts to fund much-needed landslide mapping for the area. These achievements for Transylvania County are in addition to securing additional funding for the Ecusta Industrial Building, a special grant to help enhance early childhood education initiatives, fully funded K-3 class size reduction, assistance with Headwaters State Forest and Cascade Lakes acquisitions, whirling disease research, trauma first aid kits and training for school personnel, hemlock restoration, and increased lottery funding for school capital needs- to name just a few.
