Why I’m Running

We ran a strong grassroots campaign in 2016 connecting with voters across our NC House 36 district on policy issues that matter to our families. I came within 1,400 votes (2.77%) of winning that election against a now 13-year incumbent, who continues to ignore constituent voices as his actions speak louder than words on campaign mail. I’m running again in 2018 for the opportunity to serve our district by listening and acting on behalf of our neighbors. 

I’m an engaged and active citizen in our Western Wake community. For the past few years, I have routinely visited the NC General Assembly to learn and listen.  I have sat in the galleries to observe the super majority’s misguided legislative priorities. I spent time and effort to speak with legislators, urging them not to head down the regressive path they have followed. I’ve also been visiting with neighbors on their front porches across our district for years now, with the best part being finding common ground.

My passion is to spend time advocating for policy issues that are important to families in our district. Whether in my neighborhood, church or children’s school, the fight for public education continues to push me towards a path of public service. In order to remain in the state we love, to raise our family, my decision to run again – to serve for the right reasons, is guiding me to make a difference for policy in North Carolina.

I invite you to join me, and together, we will bring our voices back to North Carolina House District 36.   Read my announcement here: https://www.jenferrellnc36.com/in-the-news/
