Chaz Beasley Files to Run for NC House District 92
Local attorney Chaz Beasley filed to run today for the N.C. House of Representatives, District 92. A North Carolina native, Beasley grew up in a single-parent, low-income home in Catawba County. Despite his disadvantaged background, he graduated as valedictorian of his public high school, earned his undergraduate degree from Harvard, and obtained his law degree from Georgetown.
Beasley, a Democratic candidate, says he is running to ensure that future generations enjoy the same opportunities that were available to him. “I’m the person I am today because our state invested in me,” he stated before filing. “Regardless of my background, I was able to get a great public school education that allowed me to reach my potential. I'm running to ensure all of our children can reach theirs.”
In addition to his emphasis on strengthening North Carolina’s public education system, Beasley also plans to focus on strengthening the local economy and promoting equality throughout the community.
District 92 is located in Mecklenburg County. It includes parts of Huntersville, Charlotte, Pineville and Steele Creek, as well as Charlotte-Douglas International Airport.
Currently, Beasley works in the finance industry. He lives in Steele Creek with his fiancée Whitney, and his future stepdaughter, Maddison.
