NC Values Voice: Live with Kristin Baker and Sonja Nicols
The media and the Democrats have called this the year of the woman. They have in mind to elect extreme liberal women. But wait until you meet these two powerful ladies with a conservative mission to shake up the General Assembly! These two candidates are both incredible women who share our North Carolina values, have impressive backgrounds, and who will be champions for conservative principles in the General Assembly. We need strong, conservative women like this leading our state!
We like them so much, that we traveled across the State to interview them for tonight's episode of The Voice, which airs at 7:30 p.m.! I hope you will join us by tuning in on our website, our Facebook page, our YouTube channel, or Twitter to meet these amazing candidates!
Why should you care if you don't live in House District 82 or Senate District 37? Because these are two swing districts, and winning these seats could well determine whether the majority in the House and Senate is Republican or Democrat. Losing these two seats would be devastating to our values as Christians because the opponents of these two strong women have radical ideas about how to govern our state.
Kristin a medical doctor who has lived in Concord for over 20 years with her husband, also a physician, where they raised their three grown children. She describes herself as "a pro-life Christian, lifelong Republican, and political outsider." Representative Baker has served Cabarrus County families as a Board of Trustees member for Cannon School and volunteered with Present Age Ministries focused on helping victims of sex trafficking. She is a Morehead Scholar who graduated Phi Beta Kappa from UNC-Chapel Hill, where she also received her medical degree. She completed her Psychiatry Residency through the Washington University School of Medicine and is board certified in both General Adult Psychiatry and Child Adolescent Psychiatry.
Dr. Baker was appointed to the seat in House District 82, after Representative Linda Johnson passed away in March. Her goals in the General Assembly include:
- To cut taxes and protect taxpayer dollars
- Fix healthcare with private sector solutions
- Crackdown on sanctuary cities and human traffickers
- Defend the 2nd Amendment, the right to life, and religious liberties
- Invest in students, teachers, and stronger schools
Sonja Nichols—Senate District 37
Sonja has lived in Charlotte for 20 years with her husband who is a Private Wealth Division executive at Bank of America. She has three grown children. She describes herself as "an accomplished businesswoman, published author, active community leader,... and a bridge between diverse communities." Sonja is the president and CEO of Nicholant Enterprises, a security-services firm staffed entirely by U.S. military veterans. Prior to founding Nicholant Enterprises, Sonja worked as a system engineer for IBM and a marketing representative for PepsiCo. Sonja earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting, and an MBA in Marketing and Computer Information Systems from Florida A&M University. She also completed the University of Richmond's Executive Management Program. Sonja started an angel investment firm to help minority business start-ups and has led many non-profits in the community.
Sonja Nichols' priorities in the State Senate will be:
- Affordable housing and healthcare
- Job creation
- Support for Veterans
- Pro-business and low taxes
- Education funding
Sonja Nichols' opponent is sitting State Senator Jeff Jackson, who was endorsed by the Sierra Club and pro-LGBT activist group Equality, NC, and marched in the streets with Black Lives Matters. He intends to take the State in a very different direction from the direction Sonja Nichols will lead.
Tonight, we offer you the opportunity to hear from both of these inspiring women. This week’s episode of The Voice features an interview we did with Sonja Nichols and Kristin Baker. I hope you’ll join us live tonight at 7:30 p.m. You can watch it here, on Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube. Join us later today!
