Do you believe that leadership should focus on what is best for the people not politics? So do I. I think leadership is about looking forward and planning for a better future, not attempting to return to an idealized past.
I am honored to be running to represent the people of Forsyth County and the 74th district of the greater Winston-Salem area in the North Carolina House of Representatives.
I am running because I believe in putting people before politics, restoring civility to our public discourse, and bringing people together. Through wise investments in people, education, and communities, we can create opportunity for everyone. I’m going to Raleigh to fight for those investments to be made in Forsyth County so that all of us can have a brighter future.
Growing up in nearby Galax, Virginia, Terri always had a connection to Winston-Salem. It was the place she went to take in a movie, go shopping or have a nice dinner. Terri attended law school here at Wake Forest University and has called Forsyth County home since 2004 when she moved here to raise her family, work and serve her community. Through her career as a lawyer, advocate for children and higher education administrator, and through service to her community, Terri has the leadership skills, experience and integrity needed to move our state forward.
Wouldn’t it be great if our people could get the training they need – to fill jobs that exist – to build a community we all want?
Jobs and Economy
We should encourage innovation, small business start-ups and job creation through necessary worker training programs, fair worker protections and access to affordable healthcare so that people do not need to leave our state to follow their dreams.
Adequate funding with appropriate investments that start in kindergarten and continue through higher education are the priority. This will ensure that North Carolina has the trained workforce for the high-skilled jobs required by the 21st century economy.
Communities are built and desired connectivity is achieved when we prioritize our needs for improved transportation and access to public institutions, commerce, green space, recreational areas, and other amenities that makes our neighborhoods thrive.
