Jane Hipps officially kicks off Senate campaign

Written by 

Jane Hipps of Waynesville will officially kick off her campaign to run against Sen. Jim Davis at an “Announcement Celebration” at 5:30 p.m. Feb. 20 at Junaluska Elementary School. 

Hipps says she is running for the N.C. Senate because she is concerned about the future of North Carolina. She highlights how opportunities for children have been eroded by the massive cuts and threats to public education, including the community colleges and universities. Hipps said that the impact of these cuts at the local level has meant that our counties have fewer teachers, teacher assistants and assistant principals.

The public is invited.
