5. As a representative of Coastal North Carolina what is your stance on regulation

Seafood is a natural resource belonging to all citizens of this state. We must find the right way to balance the needs of commercial and recreational and not favor one or the other. We are currently out of balance. We have to fix the problem

11. Do you support border security, including the wall, and better controlled
We are 50 years late in fixing our immigration problems. A nation without a

other measure to guarantee our sovereignty.

Always have and always will in every state in this country.

To make permanent the positive changes we have begun in the General Assembly. To continue the mission of guaranteeing the rights of our citizens.
