Senator Martin Nesbitt was a strong public servant for the people of North Carolina, especially his district and Western North Carolina.
As a member of the public, I had the opportunity to work with him on the Legislative Oversight Committee on Mental Health, DD, and Substance Abuse Service Services. He was a strong leader who worked hard to help improve the lives of people with mental health illnesses, DD issues, and substance abuse disease. He worked to provide additional funding during a time when it was difficult to provide additional funging to these programs.
Martin Nesbitt was a public servant at a time when there were not many in the General Assembly. He will be greatly missed.
