Press Release

Washington, DC –– Today, Congresswoman Alma S. Adams, Ph.D. (NC-12), released the following statement:

“I’m saddened to hear of the passing of Marc Basnight. I served with President Pro Tem Basnight in the General Assembly for over 16 of his 26 years in the Senate. During that time Marc made a difference in the lives of many North Carolinians, passing historic education, minimum wage, and infrastructure legislation that made our state a leader in the South. His background as a small business owner from the Outer Banks meant he always went to work for the ‘little guy.’ My prayers are with Marc’s family, the team at the Lone Cedar Café, and everyone who was touched by his service.”
