NC House Representative Donna White (R) of Clayton filed for re-election Monday at the Johnston County Board of Elections Office in Smithfield.
Rep. White said, “I am pleased to have filed today for re-election to the NC House of Representatives. As your Representative I am your voice and advocate in Raleigh. My office has helped thousands of you over the last three years and we consider it a privilege to continue to work for you. I have been awarded four Legislator of the Year Awards and three Special Legislator Of Excellence Awards. I am humbled and blessed to be a Johnstonian, a Registered Nurse and the first woman from Johnston County to serve in the NC House.”
“I’m ready and positioned as the Health Policy and Health Appropriations Chair, to continue my work this year for affordable insurance for working families and meaningful solutions for rural health care. As a member of Education, School Safety, and Environment, have supported increased funding for teachers/classified staff, pioneered successfully the first nutrient banking law to save the Neuse signed by the Governor and have successfully got Session Law signed by the Governor for the Child Sex Abuse /Strengthen Laws,” Rep. White said.
Minutes after Rep. White formally filed for re-election, Justin Tate (R) of Selma filed for the District 26 House seat. “It’s time for a new generation,” Tate said while filing at the Board of Elections Office. “It’s time to change things and get the ball rolling.” Tate said he was running on several issues including legalizing marijuana, improving schools, and getting newer school buses for students. “The Highway Patrol is out there riding around on new cars. The kids, they don’t have new buses.”
