It is time for a change in Congress. Heath is running for Congress because the residents of Western North Carolina are tired of controversies swirling around their Congressman. They are tired of the constant displays of corruption and selling of our government to the highest bidder. And they are tired of seeing our jobs sent overseas through unfair trade deals. It is time for Congress to get back to doing the people’s business.
Heath and his family moved back home to North Carolina in 2003 so he could raise his children in the same environment that he and his wife were raised in. Heath decided to run because the people of NC-11 are not getting a fair shake from their Congressman. Jobs in NC-11 have been sent overseas; far too many in this district are living paycheck to paycheck; and health insurance is unaffordable for a large number of residents; and we’re watching smog overtake our Great Smoky Mountain National Park. After much deliberation, and finally with the encouragement of his wife, Heath decided to run.
