Question 1: Why do you want to run for this local position?
Staton-Williams: I believe I am the right person to run for this elected leader position because there needs to be a different perspective at the decision-making table. I believe in helping others and caring for others through acts of service. Being in an elected leader position is an act of service to our community.
Question 2: What makes you qualified to fill this seat?
Staton-Williams: I am a nurse, a mom, a wife, a small-business owner who serves the community in multiple ways. As a nurse, I understand our connection to the health and well-being of all residents within our community. As a mom and wife, I understand the importance of education and family-centered activities to support our community. As a small-business owner, I understand the importance of connecting economic development opportunities to other small-business owners who are also our neighbors. I also support our community through volunteerism with the Cabarrus County Adult Care Home Committee, serving with Communities in Schools, and other community-oriented organizations. Having a greater understanding of our connectedness makes me qualified for any elected leader position.
Question 3: What do you consider to be the most pressing issues for this community?
Staton-Williams: I believe the most pressing issues for Harrisburg are economic development, sustainable infrastructure growth, and youth development and services. I believe the most pressing issues for Cabarrus County are obtainable (supply), attainable (within different income ranges) housing options, transportation, and sustainable infrastructure.
