Respect. Listen. Lead.

Respect. Listen. Lead. is more than a motto.

It’s the creed that Ray Russell brings to Raleigh as your new State House Representative for the 93rd District!  Thank you for all of your support!

  Ray will fight for all of the citizens of Ashe and Watauga counties, to ensure economic prosperity, protect our natural resources, promote quality education, and provide access to good healthcare.

The campaign is over for now, but there is still lots of work ahead.  Join us!

“Ray Russell is passionate about supporting students, educators, and public education in our district and our state.  He will advocate for key educational issues, such as increasing teacher pay and per-pupil spending, adding more nurses, psychologists, and resource officers to our schools, and showing respect for the education profession by prioritizing funding and empowering local leadership to make effective decisions pertaining to the community population.”

“When you hear Ray Russell speak about education you immediately know he has a firm grasp on the important issues. For far too long our representatives in Raleigh have made education decisions without being informed on the current issues. I’m confident that educators will have an opportunity to have a seat at the table when Ray is elected and goes to Raleigh.”
