Legislators named ‘Jobs Champions’
Sen. Danny Britt, Rep. Brenden Jones and Rep. Carson Smith.
The N.C. Chamber has designated the three members of Columbus County’s state legislative delegation as “Jobs Champions.”
The chamber on Tuesday released the 2019 edition of its annual legislative scorecard, which “details lawmakers’ voting records on key bills identified as critical to preserving and enhancing a positive climate for business and job creation in North Carolina.”
Sen. Danny Britt (R-Lumberton) received a 94 percent score on the chamber’s “pro jobs” index, while Rep. Brenden Jones (R-Tabor City) received 93 percent and Rep. Carson Smith (R-Hampstead) received 91 percent.
Britt, Jones and Smith — all Republicans — have filed for re-election. None had any opposition as of Tuesday morning.
The chamber bills itself as “the state’s most industry-diverse, nonpartisan business advocacy group.”
