Both of the candidates running in the March 5, 2024, Republican primary for North Carolina House of Representatives District 35 — James Norman (R) and Mike Schietzelt (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.

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


  • “Lower Taxes
  • Limited Governent
  • Schoold Safety”


  • “Our small businesses are the lifeblood of our economy and our communities. We need to unleash our entrepreneurs and our innovators to create and produce.
  • Our schools are in atrocious shape. … Our kids and our teachers deserve better. We can do better.
  • Our district has grown rapidly over the last several decades. That growth has not been accompanied by corresponding investments in infrastructure from the state. It’s time to stop kicking the can down the road.”
