North Wilkesboro Commissioner Jeffrey Elmore announces run for NC Senate, District 45
North Wilkesboro, NC (January 15, 2010) – Today, Jeffrey Elmore, teacher and Commissioner in the Town of North Wilkesboro formally announces his bid for the North Carolina Senate in District 45. Commissioner Elmore made the following statement:
“Alexander, Ashe, Watauga and Wilkes counties are suffering from the recent downturn in the economy with some of the highest unemployment numbers in the state. Our citizens need jobs and a sense of hope for our future. Instead, we see key Democrat leaders in Raleigh involved in corruption and many taking on the philosophy of taxing our way out of the problem. The people of our district need a clear vision for our future direction and I am just the person for the job. I will work day and night to make sure that the common sense, conservative values seen in our mountain and foothill communities are represented and heard in Raleigh.”
Jeffrey Elmore, a Wilkes native, was elected to the North Wilkesboro Board of Commissioners in 2007 and served on the town’s planning board prior to his election. He currently represents North Wilkesboro on the Blue Ridge Opportunity Commission (BROC) board of directors, an entity that serves underprivileged and elderly in Ashe, Alleghany, and Wilkes Counties.
Elmore, an Appalachian Sate University graduate, is a teacher at North Wilkes Middle School and was Wilkes County’s Teacher of the Year in the 2005-2006 academic year. He is currently serving as President of Professional Educators of North Carolina (PENC), a nonpartisan professional organization for educators based in Raleigh, NC. Elmore is married and has twin sons.
