Statement from Representative Ray RussellIt has been a privilege to serve Ashe and Watauga Counties for the past two years as your State House Representative. I love these counties that have been home for almost 30 years--there's so much greatness here.When I decided to run for office 4 years ago today, I adopted the ideal “Respect. Listen. Lead.” I still believe in that ideal and faithfully held myself to that standard.I will leave office with tremendous gratitude for the dedication and backing made by my campaign team, volunteers, and supporters. I will feel indebted to you for the rest of my life.I specifically want to thank my family—Rhonda and our daughters’ families who supported my efforts at much personal sacrifice. Thank you for believing in me and in the value of public service.Also, my Legislative Assistant Anna Meadows has worked tirelessly for the people of this district. Anna has been a devoted, hardworking, wise co-worker who cares deeply about people who need help. I could not have done the job without her.“I have fought a good fight; I have kept the faith.” I will leave office with my character and conscience intact.The coming days will be challenging for our country. I implore everyone to “let the people speak." The ideal of “Respect. Listen. Lead.” are so important right now. Respect the people’s decision, Listen to each other, and show Leadership by coming together.Thank you. ... See MoreSee Less

First dose of the covid vaccine is in. Many thanks to ARHS and all the kind people who made today an easy, pleasant process.

Thanks to @SenatorCarper @SenJohnBarrasso @SenJohnKennedy @brianschatz @SenatorBraun for all your work with me, especially on HFCs. By reducing HFCs - one of the more potent greenhouse gases out there—we can perhaps avoid up to 0.5°C of warming by the end of the century.
