I'm Vance Patterson, Running for U.S. Congress.
I'm a father of four, married 45 years to my wife Mary Jo. I was born in Missouri (pronounced Missura), and have since lived in Ohio, Indiana, Texas, Georgia, Tennessee, and South Carolina before landing in Morganton, North Carolina for the past 26 years.
I earned my Bachelors Degree from Hanover College and went on to take MBA courses at Butler University, both in Indiana. I recently taught a course on entrepreneurship at the University of Oxford. I am a serial entrepreneur and have started 21 companies, two of which make industrial fans. I am an American manufacturer.
I have a passion for Western North Carolina. Through my National Education 501(c)(3), Foundation Forward, I have gifted 14 Charters of Freedom settings, permanently displaying the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, and Bill of Rights in your communities. My wife and I donate roughly 25% of our income to charities, foundations, and employees.
KEY LOCAL AND NATIONAL ISSUES
If elected I will use my abilities, experience, and wisdom to attack the following issues. This is not a Political Propaganda piece. This is a working business outline of the issues I see in Western North Carolina and at the National Level.
"I know what to do, I know how to help, and it would be irresponsible not to step up.”
