Natalie Robertson is running for the North Carolina House of Representatives in District 97. She is a resident of Lincoln County and lives in Denver, NC. As a wife, mother of three and an IT professional, she believes we can do better for our children and communities by focusing on public education in North Carolina.
Additionally, she will promote well-paying jobs while balancing the growth in Lincoln County; Natalie believes in smart growth that balances educational, environmental and economic needs. Hearing the call to serve, Natalie knew it was to dedicate herself to a higher cause and become a public servant.
"As a child I always dreamed of growing up to become a superhero. Obviously, that didn't work out, but I can do the next best thing... Serve my community!"
