Rocky Mount Mayor Sandy Roberson will seek the GOP nomination in the newly-drawn Second N.C. Congressional District.

“This campaign is about getting a congressman who will show up for work, who will focus on results – not rhetoric. It’s about getting a congressman who will make accountability a top priority – where we pay attention to getting government to work at the basic level,” said Mayor Roberson.

“My 40-year business career has been about getting things done, getting results, meeting budgets and deadlines, it’s about holding people accountable,” said Roberson. “Our federal government is broken. Our faith and confidence in Washington are shattered. 

“Here’s what I will tell you – I will not support another new program. I want to fix what we have, make sure it works and make sure the services are getting delivered to the people who most need it,” Roberson added.

As Mayor of Rocky Mount, Roberson has been an advocate for transparency in local government, improving government services and making public safety and education top priorities.

“I will offer the voters in the Second Congressional district, a pragmatic, common-sense, get-it-done approach to government. I will use my background in business, healthcare, job creation and finance to focus on the issues that impact agriculture, rural economic development, market-based, patient-choice healthcare solutions,” said Roberson.

Roberson said the country must get a handle on illegal immigration and on federal spending. “We cannot borrow ourselves into prosperity. We must get a handle on spending in Washington. We also cannot have an open border because we cannot afford the negative impacts we see from illegal immigration,” Roberson added.

“I will be a champion for Second Amendment rights and the rights of the unborn. Finally, we must be ready to stand up to the rapid military development in China,” concluded Roberson.

Roberson, 53, is married to Jennifer Stone of Rocky Mount and has four adult children. He is active in numerous civic and community organizations. He is a graduate of Rocky Mount Senior High School (Class of 1985). He currently serves as Managing Partner of Health View Capital Partners. He is a member of First Baptist Church in Rocky Mount. He is an avid hunter/sportsman and ACC Basketball fan.
