“It is my honor to represent Polk, southern Henderson, and Transylvania counties in the North Carolina General Assembly. Today I ask you for another 2 years as your voice in Raleigh. I am a conservative who will continue advocating for lower taxes and policies that will allow small businesses to succeed in our district. I will continue to stand up for your 2nd amendment rights that are promised to you by the constitution. And as a Christian, I will always fight for the lives of the unborn and the born, because life is a gift from God that should always be protected.

In the next 2 years, I want to see our state make major improvements to our education system and put a focus on workforce development. I want to see our state build on the economic growth we are experiencing as a result of responsible fiscal policy. Finally, I want to see North Carolina become the most veteran-friendly state in the nation.

I ask for your support in 2020. To learn more about our campaign or to get involved, please visit our website Let’s build a future that works for North Carolina. Thank you and God Bless.” -Rep. Jake Johnson
