In the First Person:

Air, water, and environmental pollution have had a drastic impact upon the morbidity and mortality of the poor and minority in the eastern part of North Carolina.

Air quality is very important, directly affecting the rapid rise and onset of asthma and other respiratory illnesses in eastern and rural North Carolina.

There are major issues with water quality due to farming and industrial waste as well as raw, untreated sewage spills. Most of our rivers have high concentrations of dioxin. The high proliferation of automobiles being driven by one person has an impact on the air quality. The state does not have an adequate light rail or public transportation system. Additionally, coal-fired power plants are big air polluters in the area.

Air, water, and environmental pollution have had a drastic impact upon the morbidity and mortality of the poor and minority in the eastern part of North Carolina.

I've earned a Doctorate Degree in Ministry with a specialty in theology, and secular degrees in Public Administration and Political Science. One of the specialties I taught at the University level was public policy formation and analysis.
