Campaign themes


Hipps's campaign website highlights the following issues:[2]


  • Excerpt: "It is time that we in western North Carolina join together and rebuild the public education program in this great State. Let’s pay our teachers a winning wage. Let’s reward those who seek advanced certification and degrees, And, let’s get back to the business of building a better North Carolina."

In an interview with Maccon News, Hipps said she is running because, "she is concerned about the future of this state. She highlights how opportunities for our children have been eroded by the massive cuts and threats to public education, including the community colleges and universities. Hipps states that the impact of these cuts at the local level has meant that our counties have fewer teachers, teacher assistants and assistant principals."[1]
