Director of Community Engagement
When discussing environmental and social issues that affect rural North Carolina, Niki Alston, a graduate of Southeastern University (DC), leads that conversation at Jason for North Carolina. A program standout at NC Rural Center's Economic Development Institute Niki bridges the gap between people and policies. "Niki has a gift for measuring the ever-shifting social and environmental climates. Niki keeps us centered, and provides our campaign with a ground-level view of what's most important to our voters."
Chief of Staff
Intelligence, leadership, humbleness - these are only a few attributes Brandon Evans brings to the Jason for North Carolina team. Brandon is an US Marine Veteran, Henderson NC native, and holds a Master of Divinity from Vanderbilt University (Tenn). "Brandon has accomplished so much in a short time because he's focused. His ability to organize, supervise, and compel...keeps our campaign operating properly and at its best."
DIVERSITY IS MORE THAN COLOR
"If you truly understand North Carolina, then you know that our state is a mix of political affiliations, culture, race and ethnicity, educational levels, age, professions, and beliefs. Some of us are strong advocates of the 2nd Amendment, while some desire more Gun Control. Many are Pro-Life while many believe it's a Woman's Choice. A lot of us believe the Fed should do more; but many others feel the Government oversteps. Our team is focused on acknowledging the diverse views of our Congressional district, and it's my job to represent and improve the lives of ALL my constituents...regardless of our differences!" - JS
