Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays

Susan and I want to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. My family has been blessed this year with the arrival of our first granddaughter, Sawyer, and look forward to celebrating the holidays with our family. While you enjoy the holiday season with your loved ones, please remember the men and women in our nation’s military and first responders for their service and sacrifice keeping our country and communities safe. I hope you all have a wonderful end to 2017 and I look forward to connecting with you in 2018.

This week, Amy Wright, owner of Bitty & Beau's Coffee in Wilmington, NC was named CNN Heroes 2017 Hero of the Year for her work on behalf of individuals with disabilities. Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to visit Bitty & Beau's Coffee and got to see first-hand the difference Amy is making not only in the Wilmington community but across our nation. The Wright family and the entire team at Bitty & Beau's are an inspiration to so many. Congrats on a well-deserved honor. 

More Money In Your Paycheck

This week, Congress passed a tax reform package that fulfills a long-standing promise to deliver tax relief that benefits hard-working Americans across our nation. Starting early next year, most North Carolina families will notice bigger paychecks as the federal government withholds less of their hard-earned money because of newly lowered tax rates and a significantly larger standard deduction. This historic legislation also provides a major boost to American businesses and makes our private sector even more competitive at the global level, which in turn will lead more jobs, higher wages for workers, and stronger economic growth. This is a big win for American families and the American economy.
