Mark has been a fierce fighter for the 2nd Amendment, as was seen in his Greensboro City Council speech. Since then he has continued to stand for the 2nd Amendment, serving on the national outreach board for the NRA.
Mark grew up as the 9th of 10 siblings. In poverty, and with an abusive alcoholic father, he ended up in foster care. The radical left believes stories like his should not exist because low income families should abort their babies. As a Christian, Mark will stand for life.
Mark believes our children are the future of our great state, and in order for them to succeed, they must have a good education. Whether that’s through programs at a community college, pursuing a 4 year degree, or attending a trade school, the next generations must be educated to thrive, and Mark will do everything he can to ensure that every child in North Carolina has the opportunity for an education that will allow them to succeed.
Mark knows what it’s like for NAFTA to gut wages and take jobs, he experienced that himself. He also knows what it’s like for his employer to leave him jobless when the company moved to Mexico. He will fight for workers across North Carolina to make sure they have jobs to support their families.
Mark will always affirm and congratulate those who come here legally. However, he does not support those who illegally come across the border. It is a crime to do so, and should be treated as such.
As a veteran, Mark will fight for those who have given themselves to serve this country. Our veterans deserve to be taken care of, and Mark will not simply talk about getting results, he will do it.
As someone that has owned a small business, Mark understands less taxes and regulations means business owners can hire more employees and invest more into their communities.
