Happy 4th of July

Celebrating our Independence Day is an occasion in which all Americans can take pride. It is a time for us to celebrate the freedom that was secured by our forefathers, which was expressed in the Declaration of Independence. This holiday reminds us that freedom is what made our country great.

This year I will be participating in two 4th of July parades:

Greensboro Fun Fourth Parade -- Downtown Greensboro, starting at 9:30 AM

Historic Kirkwood Parade -- Independence Road in Greensboro, starting at 5:00 PM

As usual, I will be driving my red Ford Mustang, which will be decorated for the occasion.

Best wishes to you and your family for a happy and safe 4th of July weekend!

More Updates Coming Soon

The 2014 legislative session, which began on May 14th, is still underway. There is no set date for session to end, but it appears likely that we will adjourn by the end of July. I will be releasing a legislative overview at the conclusion of this year's session. In the meantime, please don't hesitate to contact me if there are any legislative issues you would like to discuss.

Hurricane Arthur

Please keep North Carolina's coastal residents in your thoughts as Hurricane Arthur makes its way to the shoreline. If you live at or are visiting the coast, please be safe and exercise caution. Let's also pray for the safety of the emergency response personnel who will be working to protect our citizens.
