He is a state senator representing Gaston county:

Again, he is a state level representative, not national.
If we're going to successfully defeat these ridiculous kinds of
lobbying efforts, it is very appropriate for us to get righteously
angry. We have to be careful, however, not to wander off into the
weeds and boil off our anger uselessly. Now I won't presume to tell
you where you should direct your righteous anger, but this list
strikes me as a more appropriate place to have a call to action.
For example, please go here:
And find out who represents you if you don't already know. From there,
send a piece of paper mail or make a phone call to get in touch with
that person. Do it at least three times. Every time, you should have a
brief, calm, clear statement about what motivated you to get in touch.
Peace and good luck to you,
