Education, Economy, and Health.

Don has been working to rebuild our economy one job at a time, while speaking out against some of the most extreme agendas coming out of Raleigh.

He refuses to give up on our students, workers or those who are in need of a doctor. He has a strong desire to continue working to address the following:

* Expand Medicaid to the over 500,000 North Carolinians who need a doctor

* Increase the minimum wage

* Salary increases not only for teachers, but all state employees
