All candidates for North Carolina House of Representatives District 50 complete Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey

Both of the candidates running in the November 8, 2022, general election for North Carolina House of Representatives District 50 —  Renee Price (D) and Charles Lopez (R) — completed Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey. These survey responses allow voters to hear directly from candidates about what motivates them to run for office.

Eighty-eight of the country’s 99 state legislative chambers will hold regularly scheduled elections in 2022. The Republican Party controls both chambers of North Carolina’s state legislature. North Carolina is one of 13 states with a divided government.

Here are excerpts from candidates’ responses to the question: What are the main points you want voters to remember about your goals for your time in office?            


  • “The Right to Vote and the Right to Representation. Our foremothers and forefathers fought, bled, and died in the valiant effort to claim the right to vote for themselves and for us.”
  • “A Sound Basic Education from Pre-K to Community College.”
  • “Infrastructure for a Robust Economy–broadband, workforce housing, and transportation I will seek to open doors so that the people of Orange and Caswell Counties have access to career- oriented jobs, opportunities for rural economic development, and inclusion in the economic wealth of this state.”


  • “Education. School choice is the Parent’s choice. As an educator, I know kids can vary in learning styles. Put the kids learning needs first and allow parents to make that choice.”
  • “Caswell is open for Business. Caswell County wants and desires a business advocate in Raleigh. One of the poorest counties in NC, the residents are nervous that in 10 years, their communities will be a ghost-town.”
  • “Adoption. Make adoption more accessible to regular families that have the passion, desire, and love to take on a local child in the current foster care system.”
