|• Commerce and Job Development|
|• Health and Human Services, Vice-chair|
Fulghum's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt:"We need to limit the growth of government. The budget picture for each biennium should be developed within the parameters of a spending cap based on a combination of state population growth plus inflation."
- Excerpt:"Professional educators should desire and expect to be rewarded for performance. Pay and advancement should be based on measurable, merit-based standards, fairly applied at regular intervals."
- Excerpt:"We need to stop picking winners and losers by tax incentive programs, loan guarantees, and land deals. These methods are unfair to businesses already in North Carolina that find ways to cut costs and still make a profit without a government hand-out, and also lend themselves to arbitrary corruption."
- Excerpt:"North Carolina needs to aggressively recruit other states’ support in demanding block grant appropriations for Medicaid. The General Assembly should instruct the Attorney General by resolution to accomplish this."
