As most of you know by now I am running for a second term for the North Carolina House, District 3. Right now the maps for all 120 House Districts as well as the 50 Senate Dictricts, have been completed, however, some of the maps could change as the maps have been challenged in court and we do not know when the issue will be resolved. Right now the primary has been pushed back to May, and it is possible that it could go out even further. 

North Carolina is moving in a good direction. We are the 3rd fastest growing state in the nation. There is a reason for that success. Our economy is strong, our taxes are reasonable, we have a strong workforce an, I know I'm a little biased, we are blessed with incredible natural beauty.  

Thanks for a lot of common sense legislation in the past legislative session, and thanks to a conservative legislature, we have been named the best state in the nation to do business by the following publications:

1. Forbes Magazine


3. Business Site Selector Magazine

Thank you for your past support, and I hope I can count on you again this November.

Great News for North Carolina

Great news for N.C.!


The state budget office reported that tax collections are $1.6 billion above expectations through January 31.
The revenue surge in state government’s first seven months of the fiscal year is happening in every major tax category.


Corporate and franchise taxes, along with taxes related to alcoholic beverage and real estate transactions, are among those seeing the highest percentage growth.
Why did this happen? Well, unlike the federal government we actually have to have a balanced budget. As such, the General Assembly tries to budget conservatively. Also, business and industry are learning that N.C. is a great place to do business.


As your Representative I am working every day to help keep N.C. moving in the right direction. Thank you for allowing me to serve as your representative.

Steve Tyson Looks Back on a Life of Service, Real Estate Adventure

Despite the challenges, Tyson said the thought of leaving his hometown for a larger real estate market has never crossed his mind.

“I love my hometown and I really love the people here. We have people from New York or Ohio or Colorado and a lot of them are just so skilled. They were professional people or they were already involved in arts and entertainment, and I just enjoy working with people like that.”
