Thank you for visiting. Please SIGN UP to get the latest news from Senator Marcus!
I am a community leader and volunteer, animal lover, Mom, nature enthusiast, and a former litigation attorney. I have a B.A. in Public Policy from Hamilton College and a J.D. from Duke University School of Law. Before becoming a member of the NC Senate, I worked at the Ada Jenkins Center, a local non-profit, and am a foster parent with a local animal rescue group.
I know that many of the critical policy issues we face are decided at the State level. Since the NCGA fell under ultra-conservative control in 2011, I've seen changes in North Carolina that are not good for families, small businesses, schools, fair elections, the environment and more. During my first term in the North Carolina Senate, I fought for affordable healthcare, common sense gun safety reform, clean drinking water, public education investments, and tax policies that are fair for working families. I support Gov Cooper's careful, science-based approach to controlling the spread of coronavirus, easing restrictions slowly and only when safe, so that we can overcome the health crisis and begin to rebuild NC's economy and get students and teachers back in classrooms as soon as possible. In my second term I will continue this work representing the people of the newly-drawn SD41, encompassing Davidson, Cornelius, Huntersville, Mt. Island Lake, North and Northwest Charlotte.
My life exemplifies my commitment to hard work, the value of a quality education, and being a voice of reason and respect. I believe in the importance of taking personal responsibility, investing in the future and cultivating an inclusive community. In a time of political discord, I offer solutions that bring people together and make positive change for the people of the district.
