Campaign themes


Mizelle's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Economic growth

  • Excerpt: "Repeal all economic development policies granting special favors to particular businesses or industries, including the One North Carolina Fund, Job Development Investment Grants (JDIG), and the Golden LEAF Foundation."

Federal aid dependency

  • Excerpt: "Support a resolution for a state initiated amendments convention for a fiscal constraint on the federal government. Forty-nine states have some form of balanced budget and a majority of United States residents support an amendment against further federal deficits."

Occupational licensing

  • Excerpt: "Reform North Carolina’s licensing structure; abolish some licensing boards and reform and merge others to bring about more jobs and lower costs."

State spending restraint

  • Excerpt: "Add a Taxpayer Bill of Rights (TABOR) amendment to the state constitution that limits annual state spending growth to no more than the projected growth of inflation and population. The amendment should allow spending growth to exceed the cap if approved by public referendum. Such a spending cap would halt four decades of government growth and better align the long-term interests of taxpayers to the short-run interests of politicians."


  • Excerpt: "I will continue the fight against universal legalization of marijuana."
