Surrounded by family and friends, North Carolina Senator Brent Jackson (R-Sampson) filed for reelection Monday afternoon at the Sampson County Board of Elections.
“Serving the people of Duplin, Johnston, and Sampson Counties in the State Legislature has been one of the biggest honors of my life,” Jackson said after filing for reelection. “I appreciate the support and trust that everyone has shown me since I was first elected. Together, we have accomplished many great achievements to move North Carolina forward.”
“We have reformed our tax code, balanced the budget every year, rebuilt the Rainy Day Fund to its highest level ever, passed 5 Farm Acts, and the list goes on and on. However, there is still work to be done, and it would be a privilege to continue to serve our state in the General Assembly.”
Senator Jackson is Co-Chairman of the Senate Appropriations/Base Budget Committee, Co-Chairman of the Agriculture and Forestry Awareness Study Commission, and also serves on the Senate Agriculture/Environment/
The 10th Senate District consists of Duplin County, Sampson County and the geographical majority of Johnston County, which are all largely rural and heavily dependent on agriculture.
Senator Jackson is a founding member of the Agriculture and Rural Caucus of the North Carolina General Assembly and was elected to the Legislative Board of the international organization State Agriculture and Rural Leaders in January of 2014. He is the co-founder and previous President and CEO of Jackson Farming Company of Autryville, a diversified operation that grows produce, tobacco, and grain.
