The Best Way to Find Yourself Is to Lose Yourself In the Service Of Others ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Dear Friends,

Thank you for electing me to serve you in the North Carolina General Assembly. I am proud to represent North Carolina House District 21. I hope to continue representing our district.  As your representative my time is spent largely in three ways. I call it my ABC’s:


  • Authoring, sponsoring, debating and amending legislation that provides the greatest opportunity for everyone in our community and state to live thriving lives and become contributing citizens

  • Building relationships with leaders at the state and national level to ensure collaboration and integration of public and private resources to direct the best programs and opportunities to Sampson and Wayne Counties

  • Constituent services by ensuring your questions are answered, needs responded to and concerns are addressed in an efficient and sensitive manner by both me personally and our staff

My office is always available to assist you with navigating state agencies and solving your problems. I enjoy meeting people and I want to meet you, your church group, civic group or network of professionals in our community, so please invite me to come speak and answer your questions personally. No group is too small.

In 2021, Representative Smith was sworn into the North Carolina General Assembly as Representative for more than 83,000 residents of House District 21 for Sampson and Wayne Counties.
At the General Assembly, Representative Smith serves on five Committees:



Representative Smith pursues legislation that increases access to critical resources for his rural and urban residents in District 21. He sponsors and supports bills which aim to decrease income inequality and increase wages, access to healthcare, job growth and creates equal economic opportunity, regardless of race, gender, religion or sexual orientation. In addition, Representative Smith seeks educational attainment, justice in criminal reform, public safety and environmental factors that prevent optimal health and well-being for his constituents.
