As the oldest of eight children and the first member of her family to go to college, Terry credits all of her success to the educational opportunities given to her and the strong work ethic modeled by her parents. Senator Van Duyn believes in the American dream and she is the product of that dream. Each and every day she remembers and appreciates where she came from, and is committed to ensuring others have access to the same opportunities she was afforded.
Whether it is delivering meals on wheels, reviewing community grants, or being a health navigator, Terry has over 20 years of experience working in our community applying practical common-sense solutions to help ordinary people put food on their table, stay healthy so they can work, and ensuring their children have access to quality education. Terry’s background in business and experience as a systems-analyst help her to see through complex problems and red tape connecting ideas and people to local solutions.
After being part of the 2014 North Carolina General Assembly session, Senator Van Duyn knows we have a long road ahead to restoring North Carolina to the state that was known as “the beacon of the South.” But she can’t do it without your help. Please consider donating or volunteering with her campaign and, most importantly, please vote. Encourage your family, friends, and neighbors to vote as well. We need your voices heard in Buncombe County and in Raleigh so that our state government represents the values of its constituents.
Senator Terry Van Duyn promises to be accessible to all residents of Buncombe County, accountable and informed, and looks forward to hearing your ideas and feedback about how she can better serve the people of Buncombe County.
