Emily Bunch Nicholson
Emily is a native of North Carolina’s Chowan County and was born in Edenton to parents that taught her the value of putting service before self. After finishing high school, she went on to attend college at North Carolina State University for her undergraduate degree, and then continued her education at East Carolina University. She went on to become a high school and community college educator, as well as a workforce professional, and now as a parent herself, she wants to put her knowledge and personal experience to use for the people of House District 1.
She is running on a campaign of improving equitable access to state resources for all who may need them by implementing: universal access to Pre-K, greater access to affordable tuition for community colleges, increased accessibility for health insurance (and expanding this coverage for seniors and those experiencing difficulties with mental health), better coverage for rural citizens, livable wages for our workforce, and many more reforms that would create a more equitable state.
