Sen. Jackson: Automated Vehicles, Robotic Reshoring & Global Logistics

Senator Jeff Jackson will focus on three areas that will contribute to a new economic landscape in North Carolina and will discuss what role - if any - state government may have in the process.

Jeff's career in public service began after the attacks of September 11th, when he enlisted as a Private in the Army Reserve. He deployed to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and was stationed in the tribal region north of Kandahar for his year-long deployment. After he came home, he attended law school at UNC-Chapel Hill with help from the G.I. Bill.

Jeff's military service continues to this day as a Captain in the JAG Corps with the Army National Guard. He drills monthly with the 130th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade based in Charlotte.

Prior to joining the General Assembly, Jeff worked as an assistant district attorney and tried over one hundred cases ranging from DWI to first degree murder. In the process, he saw up close the results of too little investment in public education, economic development, and mental health care.

Now the youngest Democratic State Senator in North Carolina, Jeff has helped build a bipartisan coalition to end gerrymandering, has formed the state's first Early Childhood Education Caucus, and has introduced a number of bills to make commonsense changes to our criminal laws, including a bill that will help thousands of North Carolina citizens regain the right to drive.

    The senators speech was a little canned, and the tollway talk at the end was off-putting, but the senator has his heart and mind in the right place and seems to be very supportive of the tech community.
