Let's Build a Durham for Everyone
Durham's greatest strength is its people, but the status quo is leaving too many behind. Nate will fight to empower Durham's communities - workers, tenants, and neighbors - from the bottom up, build a walkable city, protect our environment, and prioritize people and small businesses over more corporate profits.
Nate is a professional urban planner who specializes in helping city governments across North Carolina and the South develop community-driven plans and urban strategies.
As a member of Durham's Planning Commission since 2018, Nate has fought for progressive initiatives like walkability improvements, inclusive engagement, and transit-oriented development.
Born and raised in Durham and a graduate of Durham Public Schools, Nate is invested and has been actively engaging in local community organizing for years.
