Michele D. Presnell – Biographical Profile and Positions on the Issues

Currently Elected State Representative District 118, North Carolina

316 Woodstock DriveBurnsville, NC 28714
(828) 208-3874
General (political statement of goals, objectives, views, philosophies)

I have always been a Conservative Republican. Lower taxes, less Regulations, then small business people can begin to hire again.

Hot Topic for me is VOTER ID. This is the only way to prevent fraud in our NC elections. My opponent voted NO. We do not have enough votes in the NC House to override the Governor. Another Hot Topic is the Marriage Amendment to our NC Constitution. Let me be clear...I BELIEVE IN ONE MAN AND ONE WOMAN, traditional marriage, period.
