- Excerpt: "Unfortunately with all the cuts to DENR (Department of Environment and Natural Resources), this was allowed to happen. Strict enforcement to lakes and streams should be a priority. Duke Power, a $50 billion company was given a fine of $99,000 and no reponsibility [sic] for the cleanup before the federal government stepped in. Make companies accountable."
- Excerpt: "Should North Carolina expand Medicaid coverage? Why or why not?: Yes they should because it is very easy for someone who has health care in the General Assembly to reject Medicaid coverage. Members of the General Assembly are given free health care paid by taxpayers. If we cancel this perk it would save the taxpayers $7 million over 10 years."
- Excerpt: "Are there parts of the 2013 voter reform that you would change?: Voter ID. I have not seen or heard of massive voter fraud. When you file as a new voter, a registration card is sent to you that has all the information that can be checked at the precinct.That is your ID. It’s a felony to use someone’s name to vote."
- Excerpt: "North Carolina is 46th in teacher pay. What’s the best way for North Carolina to improve teacher pay?: Change the tax code. Teachers and children are an investment into our future. There are many companies that are not paying their fair share of taxes to North Carolina. We are losing many of our teachers to other states. Giving the top 25 percent $500 for their tenure is an insult."
- Excerpt: "Do you think any other firearm law reforms are needed?: Yes. When the law states that you can bring a gun to a park, bar, a place of worship, there is a need of reform. I am for the Second Amendment rights. but too often people are killed in bars, parks and places of worship."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
