The Roy Cooper for North Carolina campaign released a new television ad entitled “Rebuild.” The ad features Governor Cooper highlighting the important work already underway to bring North Carolina through the coronavirus pandemic. “North Carolina will come out stronger than before,” Cooper says.

“How do we rebuild North Carolina’s economy after the pandemic,” Cooper asks. “We’ve already started.”

Over the course of the past few months, Governor Cooper’s administration has started work to rebuild North Carolina. Among the programs that have accelerated the process are small business grants, more access to high-speed internet, more training for health care jobs and funding that will save rural hospitals.

How do we rebuild North Carolina’s economy after the pandemic?

We’ve already started.

With small business grants to help them stay open and keep employees on the job.

We have more high-speed internet. More health care job training. And funding to keep rural hospitals open.

Next, we need tax incentives for small businesses that create jobs. And more student apprenticeships to get them ready for tomorrow’s jobs.

North Carolina will come out stronger than before.
