Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

Education

  • Excerpt: "Education is key to our success as a state. We need strong public education to recruit businesses, strengthen educational communities like Pitt County, and to give the youth of our state the tools they need to be successful in life. I am a product of public schools in Pitt County and I would be a strong advocate for Pitt County Schools, Pitt Community College and East Carolina University. We must fight to reinstate teacher tenure, eliminate private school vouchers, incentivize master's degrees, bring teacher wages at least up to the national average and secure greater funding for education at all levels."

Business

  • Excerpt: "We need to work aggressively to eliminate over burdensome regulations on our businesses and to keep taxes low so we can continue to recruit new businesses to our area."

Supporting our families

  • Excerpt: "My mother was the main source of income for my family and the same is true for an increasing number of families all across North Carolina. When women aren’t paid a fair wage it not only hurts them, it hurts families. We must fight to ensure equal pay for equal work."

Gun rights

  • Excerpt: "I believe wholeheartedly that an individual’s Constitutional right to bear arms should be maintained and I will fight to protect that right. However, I also believe that you can protect individual rights while also taking reasonable precautions that would promote safety for all citizens. I would work to overturn the legislation that allows guns in bars, playgrounds and at our schools."

Civil rights

  • Excerpt: "We as a state should pass legislation making it illegal for North Carolinians to be fired because of their sexual orientation."
