Keep Our Citizens Safe
One of the common concerns expressed to me by my constituents has to do with their safety. Therefore, one of my top priorities as a legislator is to see to it that we take every reasonable precaution for ensuring the safety and wellbeing of every citizen and visitor to our state.
That is why I supported legislation and funding to fight the COVID crises. This included $50 million on personal protective equipment for first responders and healthcare providers, $110 million on vaccine research, testing, and contact tracing, and over $140 million for hospitals on the front lines.
That is why I fight to defend our Second Amendment rights and have earned an "A" rating by the National Rifle Association.
That is why I show strong support for the tens of thousands of law enforcement officers, firefighters, emergency responders, national guardsmen, and military personnel who unselfishly give of themselves and risk their lives to protect us.
That is why I was awarded the prestigious "Defender of Public Safety Award" by the North Carolina Sheriff's Association.
