RALEIGH — State Rep. Matthew Winslow says he’s ready to get to work after being sworn in to represent N.C. House District 7.

“It is truly an honor to represent the hardworking people of Franklin and Nash County in the state House,” Winslow said. “I’m humbled by their trust in me to do the people’s business in Raleigh. My colleagues and I have a lot of hard work ahead of us. I’m ready to get to work.”

After being elected to the position in November, Winslow will represent Franklin and Nash counties. He joins 17 new faces in the House.

The N.C. General Assembly gaveled in for its opening day ceremonies of the 2021-22 legislative session on Jan. 13. Legislators took the oath of office, agreed upon the chamber rules and elected Rep. Tim Moore, R-Cleveland, to serve a fourth term as speaker of the House.

Winslow’s current two-year term expires in January 2023.

Winslow said he wants to provide help to communities in his district that have had to declare utility nonpayment shutoff moratoriums.

Winslow is a Youngsville homebuilder, having started a company to design and build custom homes in 2009.

Despite starting in the middle of a recession, his company has grown from a single part-time employee to about 16 full-time employees, plus another 200-300 indirect employees through his various contractors. As a custom homebuilder, Winslow said he works with each client to determine their exact housing needs.

Winslow will soon receive his House committee assignments.
