Honest & Decent Politics
Before politics comes principle. Without adhering to the basic principles of honesty and decency, there can be no political debate – and no political progress. As a Soldier, a former prosecutor, a husband, and a father, commitment to those principles has been non-negotiable in my life. We may disagree on certain policies, but my primary mission is to represent the people of North Carolina with honesty and decency – and, hopefully, we can all agree on that.
Jeff became the second-youngest senator in the state Senate in 2014. He was new to political office, but not new to public service, having enlisted after the attacks of September 11th, trained at Ft. Bragg, and served in Afghanistan. He continues to serve today as a Major in the Army National Guard. He is currently in his 19th year of military service.
In the state Senate and in Congress, Jeff has built a reputation for being transparent, accessible, and candid. Jeff has helped lead the fight against gerrymandering, stood against discriminatory legislation like HB2, supported investments in early childhood education, repeatedly called for raising teacher pay and expanding Medicaid, passed reforms for our criminal justice system, and called out corruption when he saw it.Learn More
