Thank you for visiting my website and and taking an interest in the future of Wake County!

Wake County is a vibrant, inviting community known for our overall strong economic well-being and outstanding public schools. Great opportunities abound but challenges exist for meeting the needs of this growing community.

As not everyone in Wake shares equally in our economic prosperity, there is a significant need for affordable housing and greater demand for county-provided health and human services.

Our public schools, which have always been the great equalizer, are suffering from decreased funding at the state level, requiring more significant investments from county dollars to sustain the educational opportunities our students deserve.

With our expanding population there is ever increasing capital demand for school facilities, libraries and other county services facilities and our increasing traffic issues require solutions dedicated to expanding mass transit options.

As a member of the Wake County Board of Commissioners, I plan to bring the practical, solutions-oriented approach that I applied as a Wake County School Board Member to county government decision-making. With five years on the school board’s Finance and Facilities committees, a career as an accounting professional and prior experience as a business owner, I will bring a valuable perspective to the county board. I also think it is important that the make-up of the commission more closely reflect the population of our county.

It is my desire to participate in effective planning and policy-making for accommodating and funding our county’s continued growth in a way that will keep Wake a great place to live, work and learn!

To our future,
Susan signature
