Congratulations to Madison Cawthorn on his win over Lynda Bennett, but now we turn our attention to November.
We all know that Western North Carolina has fallen behind in access to healthcare, education, jobs that pay well and more. We’ve got an opportunity to change course and lean into the future. Better days are ahead, and I’m committed to do all I can to see that we get there.
I spent 25 years in the Air Force and retired as a Colonel. One thing I learned in the military: You have to earn your rank. No one in the service starts at the top and I don’t think the people of Western North Carolina believe a congressional seat should be handed to someone like a graduation present.
Experience matters. Leadership matters. Knowledge matters.
There couldn’t be a clearer choice in November.
