WILKESBORO — State Senator Shirley Randleman (R-Wilkes) has announced Wednesday that she will seek a second term to the North Carolina Senate in 2014.
Randleman, a conservative, long-time Clerk of Court and former NC House member, was selected to replace the late Sen. Don East on the 2012 ballot in Senate District 30, which includes Wilkes, Surry and Stokes counties.
In 2013, Randleman was instrumental in expanding Second Amendment rights, stopping Obamacare’s expansion in North Carolina, cutting wasteful spending, passing the largest tax cut in state history, and passing the Regulatory Reform Act of 2013 — legislation that improves North Carolina’s regulatory environment, gets rid of red tape that chokes off economic growth and makes our state a more attractive place to do business. Sen. Randleman will continue her efforts to help job creators recover from the economic recession.
She said she supports public education and the belief that more control should be at the local level with more parental involvement.
“I’m honored to serve the people of Stokes, Surry, and Wilkes counties in the State Senate,” Randleman said. “We have made great progress getting North Carolina back on track. I am committed to finding conservative solutions to our state’s problems and ensuring this remains the best place in the country to live, work, and raise a family.”
