Meet Sonja Nichols candidate for NC Senate District 37

Sonja Nichols candidate for NC Senate District 37 was interviewed by the Mecklenburg Evening Republican Women’s Club.

If elected what are your top three priorities?

  • Getting North Carolina back to work, including bringing jobs (particularly manufacturing) back to North Carolina (Pro-Business)
  • Making sure Education stays a top priority
  • Working on Affordable Healthcare and Affordable Housing (policies that are a safety net, not a way of life)

What experience do you have that qualifies you for the position?

  • I have an accounting background and an MBA in Information Systems.  I have the ability to quickly look at numbers and help determine if we are financially moving in a positive direction.
  • I worked for IBM as a Systems Engineer.  I know how to analyze a situation and work to determine the best solution to make things work.   I have a strong desire to FIX THINGS (not waste a lot of time talking about things to death)
  • I have worked as a Small Business Owner for several years and completely understand the headaches and complexities of making a small business viable.  I understand completely what is being experienced by small businesses all over the country as we work to recover from the COVID-19 shutdown.
  • I have a solid set of leadership skills, having led several large non-profits organizations here in Charlotte, including
    • Past President of Women’s Impact Fund
    • Past President of Good Friends
    • Past President of the South Charlotte Chapter of Jack & Jill of America

Why have you decided to run for office?

  • Having served in the non-profit world for many years, I have been able to see first-hand the many needs of those suffering and struggling in our community.  Who is advocating for them on the state level?  I want to be able to not only advocate for them, I also want to advocate on behalf of the non-profits who support them.  I believe the non-profits in our communities understand what is going on better than big government.  We need to support them.
  • Owning a small business, I completely understand the trials and tribulations of the struggles many face as they try so hard to make their businesses viable.  I want to be at the table making sure we have policies and legislation that encourages and supports a strong pro-business environment, for both small and large businesses.
  • Instead of always complaining about what I think our elected officials ought to do, I have decided to step up and actually be willing to do the work.  I truly have a newfound respect for those willing to run for office.

Please provide a couple of sentences about your personal life?

  • I am a wonderful wife, marvelous mother, small business owner, very busy member of the Charlotte Community for the last 20 years, and your Candidate for the NC State Senate!
  • I am a…
    • Compassionate Conservative
    • Christian Conservative
    • Caring Conservative
    • Concerned Conservative
    • Charitable Conservative
    • Community Advocate Conservative
