Democrat state lawmakers are kicking off the general election season with a series of news conferences across the state.

Democrat Senator Erica Smith and Democrat House of Representative's member Jean Farmer-Butterfield held a press conference at Pitt Street Brewing Company in Greenville on Monday.

They discussed their promise to create a stronger economy that bridges the urban-rural divide.

They both say job training programs and worker and consumer protections that will help lift workers in our state are important. One way they hope to do that is by investing in infrastructure and bringing back small businesses to help revitalize downtowns.

They also spoke about the importance of green energy, clean environment, better public schools and everyone's right to have access to affordable health care.
