I am writing to ask that you make sure each and every person in North Carolina has access to wide band internet service. Living here in Chatham County, I have experienced no internet service available and my only choice was satilite service. The service was very poor. I would love to have choices in my internet service.

The second issue I have is please do not allow my voting information to be shared with any entity outside of North Carolina. No one has the right to request this information, so please keep my voting information private.

Thank you for supporting Chatham County and the service you provide.

Dear Senator Foushee,

I am writing to ask for your support on the Early Education Workforce Policy Proposal. Child care teachers are well educated under paid employees contributing to the economic viability of North Carolina. We are educating young children and families but our wages are consistently less than $20.00 and hour. Most teachers with young children meet income eligibility criteria for tuition assistance under the subsidy system in North Carolina. Teachers need a wage supplement program to continue to work with NC’s young children. Last year at our center, we had a 40% teacher turnover. Teacher left for higher paying jobs. Our center and North Carolina needs an Early Childhood workforce that can stay in the profession of Early Education for young children.

I would like to donate to Senator Foushee’s campaign and support her efforts; however, I will not donate thru PayPal, whose founder – Peter Thiel – is one of Donald Trump’s biggest supporters. Please advise me of alternative ways of making a donation.

Support the senate bill 463


All throughout elementary, middle, and high school, I’ve had one bestfriend. We we’re exactly the same. We had the same game console. We played the same games. We attended the same classes. We made the same grades. We had about the same test scores. We we’re basically twins. But once the time came to go to college, I was able to go and he wasn’t. What was the one difference between us? I was legal and he was undocumented. Because he was undocumented, he had to pay out of state tuition. I was able to go to college, paying in-state tuition. although, we lived in the same city for years and years. I didn’t even know he was from Mexico until my 8th grade middle school year. His mom told my mom that he came over with her when he was about a year old. That was a story told to me that really stuck to me because this is a story that is the same for many other people.


Hello, My name is Rosa and I told you that story to discuss the senate bill 463. I will now read to you the senate bill 463—


(A)n individual who (i) has attended schools in North Carolina for at least three consecutive years immediately prior to graduation and (ii) has received a high school diploma from a school within North Carolina or has obtained a general education diploma (GED) issued in North Carolina shall be accorded resident tuition status.


This bill is saying that undocumented students who attended school for at least 3 years before graduation, can pay in-state tuition in any North Carolina college. This bill is important because there are many undocumented students aren’t able to go to college and finish their education.


A reason to vote for the bill is that it’ll strengthen our future tax base. Less than 2% of this years(2015) graduating class are undocumented. Less than 2% ! If that percentage was higher, the money our government would be getting from colleges would be higher.


A second reason is that there would be a long term economical benefit. The estimated total net benefits to the economy of one class of undocumented students, who take advantage of MaryLands in-state tuition policies are approximately $66 million. (2011) That is a lot of money for just one class.


My third reason is that we will gain a highly educated and bilingual workforce. Studies show inclusive in-state tuition policies reduce the dropout rate of non-citizen latinos by an estimated 14% North Carolina also has the 7th highest number of DACA — (Deferred Action for childhood Arrivals) applicants in the USA who could potentially benefit from in-state tuition.


An objection someone may have against the senate bill 463 is that tuition expansion for undocumented students takes away from or creates competition with U.S. citizens.

This is a false statement. 65,000 undocumented students who have lived in the U.S. for 5 or more years will graduate from high school each year. This will not create competition but it will cause an economic increase which means more opportunities for U.S. citizens.


A second objection someone may have would be that undocumented immigrants don’t pay taxes. There were 11.3 million undocumented immigrants in the U.S. (2014) Since we live just like U.S, we do have to pay taxes just like everyone else does. You buy your house,we buy our house. You pay bills, we pay bills. Since you do that, we do that too. It’s the exact same for us so yes, we do pay taxes.


Now that you’ve learned more about the senate bill 463, I hope you will become more aware of this issue and will support this bill because it doesn’t seem fair for our school systems to prepare us for college our whole life just so they can finish off with “Sorry, unless you were born in America, you will have to pay about 3 to 5 times the usual amount.”
It’s like when a friend invites you to go out. You plan it a week before. They tell you to get all dressed up for this event. They say they’re going to pick you at exactly this time and that you have to be ready at that time. No later time will be acceptable. But when the day comes and it’s 5 minutes before they were supposed to pick you up, they text you saying “Nevermind I can’t, sorry. Maybe some other time?” You end up feeling angry and disappointed. That’s how most undocumented students feel about having to pay out of state tuition when they lived here for most of their lives.


I personally came over to America when I was about 11 months. I am basically American. And I don’t think it’s fair if I have to pay out of state tuition when I worked my butt off to actually go to college. You can’t just tell us it’s super important for us to attend college to ultimately say we can’t.


“We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”


Going to college with an affordable price is my pursuit of happiness.

Cash register politics is shameful at best. The Democratic Party absence over the past years embarrasses me. In fact, their silence makes them a party to the travesty we have in government (that means you Valerie). Ellie had a bumper sticker on her car: “Elections that are for sale, are not free”.

I would be happy to donate online, which is quick, both for you and for me, but your website will not allow me do that without listing a phone number, which is unacceptable. My family is already being pestered by nuisance calls early morning until night, everyday, and I’m not making it worse by sharing my phone number more than is necessary. I think we were here once before, but nothing has changed.

Dear Honorable Senator Foushee,

I submitted a letter to your legislative office via priority mail on May 9, 2014 regarding a request for assistance with a problem I have experienced with Durham Technical Community College. As the college is funded by by State and Orange County taxpayers, I feel that you play an important role regarding my request as an EMS provider. I would like to know if you plan to take action regarding this matter. Thank you for your time. Best regards.
