Support for Chaz is growing!

  John, We have good news!  According to recent polls, support for Chaz has doubled in the past few weeks alone. A big reason we're gaining in the polls is that supporters like you are spreading the word.  Thank you for telling your family, friends, and neighbors why you're supporting Chaz Bea…

Honoring Dr. King

  John,   Today we honor Dr. King’s legacy, which has greatly outlasted his life on Earth.    We honor a man who challenged, and changed, the soul of this country.   We honor a man who called us to better things and appealed to our highest angels.     As Dr. King said: Life's most persis…

End of the Year Deadline

    John, December 31 is the last day of the year, but it's also the last day of the quarter. We have our biggest fundraising deadline in three days, and we need your help now more than ever. Can you rush in a contribution of $25, $15, or even $5 now?  Every dollar counts and no contribution …

Making Memories

  John, Ever since I was a kid, Christmas has been one of my favorite holidays - not because of the gifts and decorations, but because of the time spent with loved ones. We didn’t always have a ton of presents under the tree, but we did create memories that I’ll cherish forever.  I tend to ref…

NC AFL-CIO just endorsed our campaign!

  John, I’m honored to be endorsed today by the North Carolina AFL-CIO. From being raised by a single mom (who often worked two jobs) to working minimum wage jobs myself, I’ve seen firsthand how hard it is for hardworking families to get by. That has to change.  Instead of electing politicians…

I just filed!

John, Today, I officially filed as a candidate for Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina. My mom and I didn’t have much money when I was young, but I was still able to get a quality public school education, right here in North Carolina. That education enabled me to attend a great college, ear…

Why I'm Thankful

  John, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family. This is the perfect opportunity for most of us to slow down, relax, and reflect on the blessings we have been given.  As for me, I’m thankful for a family and community who provided a supportive environment, despite our humble roots. I’m thank…

A Healthier State

  John, Access to quality healthcare has affected me from day one - literally.  When my mom was pregnant with me, she lived in a rural county with a hospital that didn’t have a maternity ward. She had to drive 20 miles to the county next door to give birth.  Now, that same county doesn’t have…

Bad Directions

  John, In our everyday lives, we use maps to get to where we want to go - but, when we put in the wrong destination, we use bad directions.    That’s our current redistricting process, in a nutshell.   This week, I traveled back to the General Assembly to vote on fixing yet another set of …

We can't do it alone

  John, Today, Republican Superintendent of Public Instruction Mark Johnson entered the race for Lt. Governor.  This is the same Mark Johnson who called beginning teacher pay “good money” - even when it has been among the lowest in the nation - and unilaterally awarded a multi-million dollar co…

Voting Begins VERY soon

  John, Democrats had huge wins at the ballot box this week - but, more specifically, the legislative wins in Virginia and statewide wins in Kentucky offer us hope here in North Carolina. If we flip four seats and take back the Lt. Governor’s office, we will have a majority in the State Senate…

BREAKING: Sexual Assault Bill Passes NCGA

  John, Today, I’m proud to report that the NC General Assembly has passed SB 199, a major bipartisan bill to modernize our sexual assault and child protection laws.  Earlier this year, I authored and sponsored a bill, HB 393, that would better protect children and young adults from assault an…

Happy Birthday, Chaz!

  John, As we approach the end of October, there is a time of change that occurs. There is a change of seasons, a change in the weather, and a changing of the leaves. During the month of October there was a change in my life 34 years ago. A little boy entered my life and filled it with so muc…

Fighting Discrimination in All its Forms

  John, Today, the US Supreme Court heard major cases involving LGBTQ rights in the workplace.  With the Court seemingly divided, a ruling that makes it clear that people can’t be fired because of sexual orientation or gender identity is far from certain. Most states don’t have laws protectin…

Remember why

  John, I was born and raised in North Carolina, spending many summers playing school with my friends.  We gave mock spelling tests to our siblings and stayed up on the phone teaching each other algebra.  It was no surprise when I returned to my hometown in 2009 to teach high school. By 2014, …

Last call

  John, We are only a few hours away from our big deadline at midnight. The Lt. Governor's race is one of the most consequential statewide races in 2020.  Democrats are only four seats away from creating a tie in the NC Senate, and when you elect me as the Lt. Governor, I will be the tie-break…

This is not a game

        Just last week, North Carolina Republicans took their gamesmanship and deception to a new low.  House Republicans voted to override Governor Cooper’s veto with barely half of members present after telling Democrats and the press that there would be no vote.  John, the future of our s…

A Whole Lotto Tricks

    John,   Yesterday, Republican leadership pulled maps out of a lottery machine after a court ordered them to redraw fair districts and today, on the morning of 9/11, of all days, they deceived members to push through their undemocratic agenda.  Deception and partisan games are sadly jus…

More than Cookouts

It's time for action

The Waiting Game
