Kris Rixon is the youngest Democrat running for the North Carolina General Assembly this year, at the age of 23. He is running for NC House District 09, and if elected will be the youngest member of the House and one of the few openly LGBTQ+ legislators. Growing up, Kris had a difficult life -- having experienced homelessness, lack of healthcare, his family struggling to make ends meet, and more. In Pitt County, where his district is, people struggle everyday with these same issues. That's why Kris wants to be their voice in Raleigh, so that he can help bring responsible government back to North Carolina. He is not only running on the issues, but a promise to make North Carolina a better, stronger, healthier, and fairer place to live.
