The People’s Alliance PAC supports Chaz Beasley for North Carolina Lieutenant Governor. We think it's a plus that Chaz has a Durham connection. He knows our city since he spent much of his youth East Durham. Currently, Chaz serves in the North Carolina House of Representatives, where he represents residents in part of Charlotte. He proved himself to be an able legislator during his first term in office by introducing and seeing passed into law a bill that modernized North Carolina's sexual assault laws. In addition to his role at the General Assembly, Chaz is an attorney working in the financial industry, where he helped reform lending practices. Through his work on complex financial transactions for businesses and banks, he is familiar with the investments needed to create and sustain jobs and how such transactions can be structured to protect the financial interests of working people. He recognizes the importance of building community through home ownership. Chaz also served on the staff of Senator Harry Reid former Senate majority leader in Washington focusing his legal research on issues relating to immigration and economic development.
His actions and values align with those of PA; he supports public education and higher teachers’ salaries. He will fight for a progressive tax system, to expand Medicaid, and will work to bridge the rural-urban divide to bring prosperity to all parts of our state. Chaz understands that current majority in the General Assembly has acted to undermine the right to vote, restrict women’s right to make their own health care decisions, and obstruct the rights of LGBTQ+ people in North Carolina, and he will continue to fight back when elected Lt. Governor.
