Issues - Dan Blue for NC Senate


Since I was appointed to the NC Senate, I have sought to represent the interests of District 14.  I held three town hall meetings prior to the start of the 2010 legislative session.  Throughout the year—before, during, and after the 2010 legislative session—there are a handful of issues that surface again and again in my conversations and discussions with concerned citizens.  Those issues are:

  1. Jobs and the economy
  2. Government spending
  3. Education
  4. Ethics
  5. Affordable healthcare

These are not the only concerns or issues that I have discussed nor are they the only issues that we address in the Senate.
