Meet State Representative William Brisson

     I am William Brisson, State Representative for the North Carolina House of Representatives, District 22, which now covers Bladen, Sampson, & Johnston Counties. I was born and raised in this District and it is my pleasure and honor to have served as your Representative since 2006.

     Growing up in Dublin, NC (where I still live), I know the challenges that we face as a rural area. I am a full time farmer along with my brother, Nelson. Our parents taught us the value of hard work and living as Christians. I take those values with me to the floor of the NC House.

work harder

     My Campaign promises the same things that I have ran on since I first started in politics. To be open, accessible, honest, and to stand up for you! I am a conservative Democrat who believes in providing the services that people need, while still trying to minimize the costs. I will always support our children, the elderly, and the disabled. We have to protect and help those that can not do so for themselves! As a registered voter, you have the power to elect the people that represent you. As a candidate who will take your concerns and beliefs to the State House, I ask for your continued support and for your vote to re-elect me as your State Representative!
