Common Sense For North Carolina

My name is Wendy Bryant Sellars, and I am a candidate for NC House District 80.   I am involved with creating change in my community for the last ten years. Through working with various committees, organizations, and citizens in the city of Thomasville and in Davidson County.  I have made significant progress towards ensuring the success of our district.  By working with our community stakeholders, I hope to bring issues facing district 80 families to the forefront of our general assembly.  I am excited about being able to serve the people of this great community, but before I can help, I must conduct a successful campaign.  There are currently three other candidates running for the District 80 seat in this November election.   With hundreds of brochures to purchase, yard signs to order, newspaper ads, stamps, campaign radio ads, and other campaign extras, I will need your help.  I am turning to the people who have to know me and the work I have done to get involved in my campaign and help make a difference. Your early contribution, made payable to “ The Committee to elect Wendy Sellars,”  will give our race a tremendous boost right out of the starting block. Your gift of $25, $50, $100, $250 will help me raise the vital “early seed money” I need to launch this campaign successfully. Our goal is to raise $5000.00  by April 1st, 2020
Thank you for your support!

NC House District 80

Why Wendy?

I have no agenda just a spirt of concern for our state and county.  I understand  that in order for NC to move forward we must move away from partisan politics and come to the table with a attitude of compromise to solve our issues together.  If eleceted I am willing to reach across the aisle to work for NC.

The Platform

Affordable Housing & Homelessness

With the slow growth of affordable housing and flat wages, North Carolinian's are  facing the pressures of gentrification and displacement throughout the state.   Rising housing values and area median incomes have driven up rent in many North Carolina communities.  The stagnation of working class wages has caused a rapid rise in housing costs throughout the state.  Even during a period of economic growth this issue paint's a particularly grim picture for renters across North Carolina.  If elected I will fight for affordable housing in District 80.  This issue must be addressed now.

Criminal Justice Reform

I have been in law enforcement for 24 years and have seen departments and facilities go unnoticed.  It is time we look at our correctional system as a priority.  Not just assisting incarcerated citizens but also our hard working officers that protect our communities everyday. If elected I will bring a first hand perspective to the issues of working conditions, slow growth in salaries and  issues of recruiting qualified officers to this department.  North Carolina must make this department a priority!

State Budget

 The House budget is another missed opportunity to invest in our priorities that support the education of our children, the well-being of our families, and the safety and opportunity in our communities. House leaders did not fully address our state’s upside-down tax code; instead, they adopted another round of tax cuts that will primarily benefit businesses of high net worth. The result is a continuation of the decades-long trend of decreasing investments in North Carolina as a share of our economy.

Medicaid Expansion

 

Health insurance coverage matters to the health and well-being of individuals and families. While federal and state policymakers debate various legislative vehicles to accomplish expanded coverage, one thing is certain: Increasing health insurance coverage is essential for North Carolina to achieve its goals for healthier outcomes.

North Carolina currently ranks 9th worst in the nation for the high share of our population living without the security that health insurance coverage provides.

Indeed, health insurance delivers financial security by protecting people from catastrophic, unexpected medical expenses and by letting people get preventive care and treatment when they need it at a price they can afford.

2ND Amendment Protections

We have the right to protect our families


I have been in law enforcement for 20 plus years and I believe in Second Amendment rights.  I feel If an individual proves to be a responsible, mentally stable and a  law-abiding citizen, then there is no reason why they should not be able to own firearms.  However, as the saying goes, “With great power also comes great responsibility.”  If we are to support the Second Amendment, then we should also be willing to make sure our community is safe from those who plan to use guns to harm others.   The question then becomes how to do that, and that is the cornerstone behind the gun debate.  Banning guns is not the solution, but neither is arming everyone on the streets.  Gun ownership is a personal choice and one that comes with a lot of accountability.  There is not a quick fix to this, but I believe instead of being at odds with one another, we can work together to find answers that bring logical, common-sense solutions to North Carolina.  

I found the attached article to be a thought-provoking and great way to begin to open up the discussion and understand one another.  

It is my goal to represent the people of District 80 and I would love to hear from you.  Please comment, call or message me anytime.
