In Wake County, No One Should Be Left Behind.
During my tenure as a Wake County Board Commissioner, we have:
- Adopted 20-Year Affordable Housing Plan to provide funding and coordination with all municipalities to ensure housing affordability in the face of growth
- Opening in fall 2018, the Oak City Center will provide immediate assistance to those experiencing homelessness
- Passed Wake County Food Security Plan, which will preserve farmland, provide training to young farmers to enable sales to institutional buyers such as the schools, continue to fight student hunger, and address the food desert issue countywide
- Adopted the “Frequent Faces” data collection effort with sheriffs, hospitals and Wake County human services, to determine where services can be more effectively delivered to those who frequently receive expensive behavioral care in the ER or Jail
