David Pratt Carter was a 2014 Republican candidate for District 56 of the North Carolina House of Representatives.


Campaign themes


Carter's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]


  • Excerpt: "We must be focused on job creation. Private businesses, whether "Mom and Pop" sole proprietorships to corporations with operations here provide jobs and economic stimulus to our State's economy. Public sector jobs support the government's work, private sector supports the State and its people."


  • Excerpt: "It's vital that we pay our teachers the salaries they deserve. They work hard and are entrusted with our children."

Government Waste

  • Excerpt: "We must work to reduce government waste and in some cases, spending. Our state pension plan, for example, is a mess. Money that could be given to pensioners is being sent to money managers. If we're smarter with our spending and with the public's money, we can do SO MUCH MORE."
