Campaign themes


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

Term Limits

  • Excerpt: "With the influence of special interest money controlling the actions of the NC General Assembly in combination with unprecedented overreach into the actions of local government, as well as the inability to carry out basic oversight and financial management, I believe it is now time to impose TERM LIMITS on elected members of the NC General Assembly."


  • Excerpt: "I support full accountability for all schools using taxpayer dollars."


  • Excerpt: "William Osborne supports a moratorium on fracking until a complete review of “objective” scientific evidence is evaluated, including research currently being conducted at Duke University and other research centers."

Job Creation and Economic Development

  • Excerpt: "Our state needs to look at public private partnerships that serve the best interest of the state and the people."

Medicaid Expansion

  • Excerpt: "I will support the expansion of Medicaid to low income workers. This program is designed to help people who have a job and are not earning enough to support their family and still be able to afford health care insurance."
