Six years ago, I walked out of the mayor’s office after a 12 year tenure- the longest in Gastonia’s history.
Today, I’m stepping back into a new role as candidate for North Carolina House representing Gaston County.
For the past year, I’ve been encouraged to consider this challenge. The list of encouragers has grown and when I recently met with a room full of community and business leaders, I was surrounded by dedicated Republican, Democrat and unaffiliated voters standing together for the same cause – my candidacy!!! In this day and time, that’s close to miraculous.
