Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Counts' website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Education

  • Excerpt: "I believe that our public school teachers are paid too little (ranks 46th in nation), and that North Carolina can NOT keep the best and most qualified teachers with the current pay scale. I believe that our teachers should be given a pay increase for completing a master’s degree. I believe that we should be increasing the number of Preschool slots for at-risk four year olds. I believe that the “voucher” system would weaken our Public School System."

Small Business

  • Excerpt: "I remain very concerned that the current North Carolina administration is pushing to privatize the state’s economic development efforts by turning them over to a nonprofit corporation that will be funded by public and private money. Once elected to the NC House, District 93, I will work with existing economic development/entrepreneurial groups in both counties to assess the needs in our two counties. I am presently in the process of speaking with some of these leaders."

Environment

  • Excerpt: "Fracking is a controversial method of removing natural gas from deep in bedrock. It has been linked to polluted well water in Pennsylvania and elsewhere and to a multitude of earthquakes in Oklahoma and Texas, a most unusual development in that part of our nation."
