In his first term in the North Carolina General Assembly, Representative Brad Salmon has focused his efforts on the matters most important to the people of Lee and Harnett counties – fighting for a stronger public education system, strengthening our economy, standing up for our veterans and first responders, and protecting our natural resources.
Brad has fought to protect the people of Lee and Harnett Counties from the harmful environmental impacts of coal ash and hydraulic fracturing. He was a primary sponsor of House Bill 76, which disapproved of the rules written by the North Carolina Mining and Energy Commission. People in Lee and Harnett counties are rightly concerned about fracking, and as long as the powers that be are determined to make it a reality, Brad is determined to fight for rules that will adequately protect our people, our water, and our land rights. The people of District 51 deserve nothing less.
