For decades our elected officials in North Carolina have neglected their

responsibility to fund classrooms and critical education programs, protect our

coast against offshore drilling, and promote an economy that gives every family

in our communities an opportunity to thrive. A retired educator and

administrator, and a steward of the environment, Tom is committed to serving

the people and protecting the irreplaceable natural resources in beautiful

Brunswick County. He is running for NC House to represent District 17 to make a

positive change. He promises to listen and put the interests of our communities

above party ideologies. If elected, he will:


  • Work to increase teacher salaries to at least the national average 
  • Fight to expand early childhood programs 
  • Support Improved Infrastructure 
  • Fund workforce development programs 
  • Fight against offshore drilling 
  • Properly fund DEQ 
  • Work to secure more resources to fight the opioid crisis
  • Fight to expand the healthcare programs under the law
