Support Our Movement!
Tarsha and Team 33 are working night and day calling the hard-working people in our communities, meeting with them face-to-face, and going door-to-door to discuss the issues that matter most to the people of Rowan and Stanly Counties.
But we can’t do it without you! Big, well-funded candidates and their donors have run things here for too long. We are a people-powered movement. We are about taking the issues that matter to YOU and making sure your voice is heard in Raleigh. And there are two ways to make sure your voice is heard loud and clear:
2. Like us on Facebook! And share with your friends!
3. Be a volunteer! Go out into the community, call voters, host events, put up signs, whatever you do, your voice will be boosted by other volunteers working toward our common vision. Just email us at email@example.com! You can also see upcoming volunteer opportunities on our events and appearances page!
4. Come out, meet Tarsha, and let’s talk about the issues that matter to you. I’ll be appearing at numerous events throughout Rowan and Stanly Counties over the next month. See our events and appearances page, or keep posted via our Facebook page!
Who is Tarsha?
My father was a government employee for over 53 years. My mom was a homemaker. I was born and raised in East Spencer, NC. I attended North Rowan High School, and then graduated from the North Carolina School of Science and Mathematics in Durham, NC.
I have a BA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I have worked for Ahold Delhaize under the Food Lion Banner and Retail Business Services for almost 23 years.
I’m a proud single mom to my two amazing kids.I know what it’s like to have to work my heart out to give them the things and opportunities they need. I got in the race for NC Senate because I’ve seen too many people struggle, and I know how it feels first-hand. I’m in this for my kids and yours and everyone’s in our state.
I am running because I am a resident of Rowan County (Franklin District), and I care about my community just like you do. I work here, I live here, and want to see our communities thrive and prosper. I want to see Rowan and Stanly Counties grow and succeed just like the counties all around us. My goal is to listen to what you care about, learn from that, and make it happen.
My Momma was my inspiration! She loved politics, and that’s what I grew upon. She registered people to vote at our kitchen table. She could argue with you intelligently about her views. I miss her, and I aim to make her proud.
I dedicate the work of our campaign to her memory.
What does Tarsha stand for?
Our campaign is people and family-centered. We believe that everyone in Rowan and Stanly Counties – and all over our great state – deserves the same opportunities to thrive and realize their hopes and dreams. The North Carolina General Assembly under Republican control has failed us over and over again. We have to roll up our sleeves and do the hard work of making our state and communities work for everyone who lives here, not just a select few.
I am committed to:
- Making critical improvements – both immediately and over the long hail – to our public education system.
- Paying our teachers at a level that values their incredible talents and commitment to our children. Together they are literally creating our state’s future, and we need to pay them accordingly.
- Focusing on economic change that stimulates meaningful job creation in Rowan and Stanly Counties. Neighboring counties have more opportunities than we do, and it’s long past time for that to change.
- Ensuring with the force of law access to affordable healthcare and medicine for all North Carolina families, and passing Medicaid expansion to help our most vulnerable and in-need neighbors. No one should be without affordable healthcare. No one.
- Working tirelessly for families and people struggling and working hard just to get by and care for the ones they live. I raised two amazing kids as a single mom, and I know first-hand how hard it is. And I will be fighting for you every single day.
