Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Whitley's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Education

  • Excerpt: "Whit strongly believes in protecting our teachers’ job security as well as in increasing their pay raise to at least the national average. He believes that the right to public education, explicitly stated in NC’s Constitution, must be adamantly protected."

Jobs And Economy

  • Excerpt: "Whit understands the strong correlation between a region’s public education system and its attractiveness to job creators. Companies look at how a state invests in its education when deciding whether or not it will invest in that state."

Environment

  • Excerpt: "Eastern North Carolina is pivotal to North Carolina’s eco-tourism, which is a large revenue source for the state. Whit will work across the aisle to protect our local environment from special interests."

Infrastructure

  • Excerpt: "Although Eastern NC has a lower population density than the rest of the state, Whit believes that the eco-tourism Eastern North Carolina provides is invaluable to the state and should merit receiving the transportation dollars to improve the quality of our road systems."
