Graham, NC: Ricky Hurtado, NC State House Representative has filed for re-election in House District 63 for North Carolina House. After one year of service, Representative Hurtado is looking forward to once again earning the votes of Alamance County citizens.
In his first year in office, Representative Hurtado has worked tirelessly on COVID-19 relief and recovery efforts, both in the legislature and in the local community. Rep. Hurtado has also been a staunch advocate for public education, serving as a lead sponsor and spokesperson on legislation that would create a blueprint for educational equity and fully fund our public schools. Perhaps most importantly, Rep. Hurtado has been a significant player in the fight to protect Alamance County’s clean air and water through his local environmental advocacy efforts.
Rep. Hurtado will continue to look for ways to improve the lives of Alamance County families, working towards bipartisan solutions to lower the cost of healthcare, increase high-speed internet access through broadband expansion, and spur continued economic growth through small business support and entrepreneurship. Rep. Hurtado has shown he is willing to work with anyone interested in finding real solutions for working families, voting for a historic budget this year that provides raises and bonuses for educators and state employees, tax relief for families with the child tax deduction, and funding to continue to preserve the environment.
Reflecting on his first year in the NC House, Rep. Hurtado stated:
“I am proud of the work that our office and I have put in to represent Alamance County in a new way. I’ve prioritized the needs of those at the frontlines of this pandemic, including students, parents, teachers, healthcare workers, and small business owners. I recognize people are tired and frustrated with the state of things when it comes to the pandemic and politics, but my goal since day one has been to be part of the solution for my community, not the problem. I see there is more that unites us than divides us and I hope voters recognize we need more bridge builders that will bring us together to build a brighter future for Alamance County.”
