Unfortunately, Wake County has been led by single-party rule for almost a decade. During that time residents have seen property taxes rise, budget deficits increase, and crime rise. To avoid the perpetual decline seen in many counties in the country,  Wake County needs a new voice for common sense policies. It is time for a change.

As your District 6 Board member, Jacob will work to implement sustainable fiscal policies, lower taxes, reign in spending, and increase public safety. It’s going to take time, effort, and volunteers to make this a reality. Together, we can begin the process of making the Wake County Board of Commissioners a body that truly seeks to serve those it represents.
