Choice is Key
"Every parent should have a choice where their child is educated...it should not be dictated by the government." -- Lt. Governor Dan Forest
In 2012, in his first run for elected office at any level, Dan Forest became only the second Republican since 1897 to be elected Lieutenant Governor in the state of North Carolina. Dan’s victory to the State’s second highest office came after he personally travelled nearly 300,000 miles to all 100 counties.
This same work ethic was demonstrated in Dan’s previous career. A registered architect, Dan rose from office intern (while in college) to Office President and Senior Partner of the North Carolina’s largest architectural firm over his 22 year career.
Alice Forest is the wife of Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest. A native of Shelby, North Carolina, Alice graduated from Shelby High and attended UNC Charlotte prior to working in Human Resources for the former First Union Corporation.
For the past fifteen years, Alice has homeschooled her four children, who range in age from 11 to 23. Their oldest recently graduated from UNC Chapel Hill.
