IREDELL HAS BEEN MY HOME SINCE 1971. My family is here. My business is here. My life is here. As a NCDOT Board member I came to know the commissioners of Iredell and its five surrounding counties. They took their jobs seriously and worked to improve the lives of their constituents and worked with me to channel resources to make infrastructure improvements.
We were able to straighten curves in Alexander, enhance vistas on Lake Norman, and to initiate both the 77/40 interchange rebuild, and the Lake Norman Bike Trail. I founded The Lake Norman Regional Transportation Committee so that everyone in counties around the Lake got a chance to put their two cents worth in the “pot of ideas” concerning our regional transportation initiatives which so impact our lives.
While on the NCDOT I worked really hard to boost the return on our contributed federal tax dollars to 90% from previous levels of 85% or less. I BELIEVE IN USING THE STATE AND FEDERAL RESOURCES OUR TAXES HAVE ALREADY PAID FOR.
