Bortree announces bid for NC House in District 78

Cory Bortree has announced his intentions to file to run for N.C. House of Representatives in District 78. The seat is being vacated by Rep. Allen McNeill.

Bortree, in a press release, said his main focus is to expand school choice, stand up for small-choice, and defend constitutional rights against government overreach.

“I’ve lived in Randolph County all of my life,” said Bortree. I’m a graphic designer and consultant at Stonetree Signs, my family’s business located in Asheboro. Both of my parents grew up in poverty. I grew up homeschooled in the business that brought them out of it. I was the first in my family to graduate college, earning a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Campbell University where I was appointed to the state board of the College Republicans as webmaster. I knocked on almost 7,000 voter’s doors to re-elect President Trump in 2020.

“Growing up in a sign company, I learned not only from my parents but from all of the business owners we worked with over the years. A day in my life is meeting with business owners and helping them figure out what they need to most effectively grow their businesses, create jobs, and take care of their families.”

Bortree said 200,000 small businesses closed their doors in the first year of the pandemic due to government overreach, and inflation is a massive economic challenge. 

“Randolph and Moore counties deserve an uncompromising conservative to stand up for small businesses, to speak out for school choice, and to defend our constitutional rights,” said Bortree. “I am a Christian conservative and I am humbly asking for your vote this May.”
