“The Treasurer of North Carolina has tremendous, untapped potential to help North Carolina’s families. I will use the direct authority of my office as well as my platform to implement and advocate for effective public policies.” Ronnie Chatterji

Ronnie Chatterji for NC Treasurer

What are the three biggest challenges facing the Treasurer’s office? If elected, how would you propose to address these challenges?

Three Things:

Too few North Carolinians have access to high-quality and affordable health care. I will advocate for the expansion of health care in North Carolina and ensure that the state health plan (managed by the Treasurer) refocuses on affordability and quality of care for our 720,000 state employees. Specifically, I will actively support the expansion of Medicaid across North Carolina. Expanding Medicaid will provide a foundation to reform the State Health Plan. I will ensure that the State Health Plan gets smarter about how it pays for health care. The goal should be to align the billions we pay each year in health care costs with healthy outcomes for North Carolinians.

We must help more of our fellow citizens save for retirement.  As Treasurer, one of my legislative priorities will be the creation of individual retirement accounts for every North Carolinian. These accounts will be managed by the Treasurer’s office and all North Carolina employers who do not currently offer a plan will be automatically enrolled. Employees can opt-out at any time and the Treasurer’s office can leverage our expertise and scale to manage the accounts at low cost. We will incorporate lessons from other states that have been piloting these programs to ensure we offer the best possible product to North Carolinians.

I will modernize and improve the North Carolina Retirement Systems, returning it to world-class standards of fiscal responsibility and risk management. I will carefully review the portfolio and hire the right talent to ensure that we are investing our funds efficiently, with prudence, and with an appreciation for the economic implications of diversity and environmental sustainability.

Reason 66 to Flip NC

TO RESTORE THE EARNED-INCOME TAX CREDIT

The Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) provides a tax credit for lower-income working families and was adopted on a bipartisan basis across the country as an alternative to welfare. In 2013, while simultaneously cutting taxes for corporations and the rich, the GOP-controlled legislature repealed NC’s EITC, making North Carolina the first state to do so in over 30 years. The NC Republican Party’s values and priorities could not be clearer.

Alamance County needs election workers for the 2020 Elections!

Check this link to the Alamance County Election Official Application. We especially need elections workers during the 17-day early voting period. We have a new early voting location at the Elmira Community Center in Burlington and we have newly expanded weekend voting, including Sunday voting. This means we need more elections workers than in the past. And the COVID virus has meant that many of our predominantly older elections workers who are more vulnerable have chosen not to return to work this year’s election.

You can also fill out the NC State Board of Elections Democracy Heroes form to be contacted by BOE staff: https://www.ncsbe.gov/get-involved
