The Legislative Session in Raleigh closed last week- and that means local state representative Cully Tarleton is home to communicate with his constituents.
It’s been a long session- and Tarleton is pleased with what he’s been able to accomplish in the budget- especially where education is concerned.
"About 57 percent of the budget is for education, which includes a nice raise for our teachers," he said earlier this week.
Tarleton also expressed his satisfaction that funding was approved for the new College of Education building at Appalachian State University.
While he plans on continuing in his efforts to raise teacher salaries above the national average next session, he’s currently enjoying his time in the district meeting with citizens and groups about their concerns.
His phone has been ringing off the hook, he says- and that's fine.
In fact, it’s so fine that he wants his home phone number published so constituents can reach him directly.
He wants to listen to his constituents, he says- and be as accessible as possible.
His phone number is 828-295-3353- and don’t hesitate to use it, he says.
