Kyle Hall is officially the new 91st District Representative in the North Carolina General Assembly following a swearing in ceremony held at Pinnacle Elementary School on Sunday.
Hall said the school had played a key roll in the development of his career, relating a story of how when he was in third grade his father, a fourth grade teacher at the school, had made Hall play John F. Kennedy during a school play about great Americans, a decision which eventually led to Hall’s interest in politics.
“Teachers and parents have a tremendous impact on the lives of young people,” Hall said Sunday after being sworn into office by Judge Bill Southern. “As a new member of the North Carolina House I want our state to have a business friendly environment to grow jobs and improve our economy by passing conservative reforms that cut taxes, cut regulations and cut wasteful spending.
“One way to build a better North Carolina is through our schools,” he added. “Education is the backbone of our state’s economy. We must insure that our students have the tools necessary to succeed.”
Hall said he plans to file to run for the seat he was appoint two when voters go tot he polls next November.
“I don’t want anyone to feel this position was handed to me,” he said. “I will work hard each and every day that God has me in this position to do what is best for Stokes and Rockingham counties and to improve the lives of those in the Tarheel state.”
Hall said he was a conservative candidate who was against abortion and for smaller government.
“I believe our government has gotten too big, its reach is too far and its burden is too large,” he said. “The government is not meant to inhibit one’s potential but rather to allow each individual the ability to unleash one’s own entrepreneurial spirit.”
