Press Release: Rep. Jon Hardister Files for Reelection

December 1, 2015

For Immediate Release

Greensboro, NC - Today Rep. Jon Hardister (R-Guilford) filed to run for reelection to the NC House. Hardister said that his passion for public service was a primary factor in his decision to seek reelection. He also cited a successful track record of problem solving and providing constituent services as reasons for seeking another term in office.

"It would be an honor to continue serving the citizens of Guilford County," Hardister said. "As a legislator I have focused on solving problems, increasing government efficiency and providing good constituent services. I would be humbled by the opportunity to continue working to move North Carolina in a positive direction."

Hardister has passed numerous bills during his first two terms in office. He has passed bills that reduce regulations on small businesses, protect school choice and enhance child identity protection. He has also supported efforts to reform North Carolina's tax code, control state spending and promote efficiency in government operations.

"North Carolina is now one of the most business-friendly states in the nation," Hardister said. "We have reformed our tax code, kept state debt low and invested responsibly in the core services of government. It is important that we continue working to strengthen our economy and provide citizens with more opportunity to succeed."

In addition to his track record, Hardister cited his work ethic and political independence as attributes to warrant his reelection.

"Although I remain dedicated to conservative principles, I do not make decisions based on partisan politics," Hardister said. "The decisions that I make are based on what I believe is in the best interest of our citizens. I put a lot of effort into this job and I take it very seriously."

Hardister, who was first elected to the NC House in 2012, will be seeking his third term in office.
