Elizabeth Redenbaugh was a 2014 Democratic candidate for District 9 of the North Carolina State Senate.

Redenbaugh served as a member of the New Hanover County Board of Education from 2008 to 2012.[1]


Redenbaugh earned her B.S. in the Administration of Criminal Justice from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and her J.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Law. Her professional experience includes working as a tutor and mentor to three young girls attending Title 1 schools and as a board member of Good Friends of Wilmington, a non-profit organization.[1]


Campaign themes


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


  • Excerpt: "Providing a top-tier public education system for all is Elizabeth's top priority. Ensuring that both our children and our teachers receive the dignity, value and respect they deserve within our school system is critical."

The economy and jobs

  • Excerpt: "Our current General Assembly is not at all respecting the economic well-being of North Carolinians. Elizabeth plans to improve our economy through investments in education, innovation and out infrastructure. Ensuring the film incentives of District 9 do not expire is key to Elizabeth's job plan."

The environment

  • Excerpt: "Elizabeth knows that a General Assembly that does not respect the environment does not value its citizens. Elizabeth vows to protect North Carolina from the mountains to the beaches and everything in between."

Other issues

  • Excerpt: "Elizabeth will continue to fight for greater equality for all in the Senate. Elizabeth is a strong advocate for women's issues. She knows that women deserve to be paid the same as men for the same work. She also does not think that the government should make decisions about women's health; those are personal decisions to be made by women themselves."
