Terry Van Duyn demonstrates focus and priorities

In the six short months that Terry Van Duyn has served in the North Carolina Senate, she has clearly demonstrated her focus and priorities.

She supports the following: strengthening the educational system, protecting the environment, bolstering the economy, increasing accessibility to health care and housing for the most vulnerable populations and holding the Legislature accountable for its wanton disregard of the basic needs of the many in favor of the “wants” of the few.

Her votes and co-sponsored bills concern these critical areas. You can find them at avl.mx/0ho.

I was deeply saddened when the late Sen. Martin Nesbitt passed away, and I bemoaned the future of the N.C. Senate. Terry Van Duyn has brought hope back. Her work over the last two decades as an active community member has clearly proved her altruism and dedication to the betterment of those in this state. She is not about cheap rhetoric and promises. She is about thoughtful planning and action.

I have the utmost confidence in her long-term effectiveness in the General Assembly. She is intelligent, courageous and trustworthy. North Carolina needs Terry Van Duyn to stay in the state Senate.
