Jeff Doctor Campaign Videos

Jeff Doctor is a long time resident of North Carolina’s 9th Congressional District which includes portions of Mecklenburg, Union, and Gaston Counties. He has proven himself as a family man, community leader and a successful entrepreneur and businessman. Jeff’s role as an activist in domestic violence programs and as an investor and owner of small businesses has given him the deep roots within the Charlotte community to really understand the challenges that citizens of the 9th District face on a daily basis.

I am running as a Democrat for the United States Congress because I believe in fighting the broken system of government in Washington, DC and bringing change home to North Carolina’s 9th District.  Like you, I feel that this is the time to take action, and I am committing myself to this race to improve the lives of North Carolinians.  I uphold the principles and standards of the Democratic Party and I will be watching closely the implementation of the recent health care reforms to make sure they benefit the families and the senior citizens of the 9th District.  As a pro-business entrepreneur, I support 2nd Amendment rights, and education for youth to meet the emerging global economy and improving the lives of all North Carolinians.

Jeff Doctor’s Native American Issues

Jeff Doctor’s Native American Issues

– Native Representation
I will work to establish a place at the table for Native Americans.  I will work with Indian Country to expand the rolls they play in the state and national party organizations, and I fully support Native participation in the electoral process, not just as voters but as candidates.  Native American values are those of the Democratic Party: taking care of those who need a helping hand and giving a voice to those who have not had representation.

-Tribal Sovereignty
I fully support complete Tribal Sovereignty and will further this issue on behalf of the Native American people on a federal level.  By doing so we can keep our inherent character as Indian people.  In the process, we will preserve a legacy for our future generations.

– Economic Development
I will support Indian nations to gain self-sufficiency and self-governance through sound economic development and business practices, and to help tribes maximize their potential to their fullest extent.  High unemployment in Indian Country must be dealt with.  To find solutions that help Indians attain sustainable economies, I support the development of existing resources like gaming, renewable energy and increasing tribal business knowledge to increase job opportunities and further economic development.

– Gaming
Native gaming business is an important part of the future of Tribal Sovereignty and the sustainability of our economy.  Many tribal governments have seen substantial improvements in their ability to provide public services to their members, such as building schools, improving infrastructure, and rebuilding the loss of native traditions.  I will bring my voice to the national level to achieve long-term goals of promoting Indian gaming.

A Personal Statement from Jeff Doctor…

It takes a lot of work and effort to get to Washington, D.C. The minority constituency in my District is very small.  I need additional help from around the country to be successful in District 9.  You and our tribal leaders have contributed endless funds to incumbent Members of Congress and the U.S. Senate.  We have elected great friends in Washington, D.C., but currently none of them are Indian.  I am Indian.  And I want the seat at the table to represent the people of North Carolina, but also to represent you.  My wife Allyson and I have made the financial and personal commitment to fight long and hard to win this seat.  We need your personal and tribal support to win this historic campaign for you, for your tribe, and for all the Indian leaders that will follow.  I am Jeff Doctor.  Thank you for your support.

Jeff Doctor Letter to the Native American Community

Friends,

On behalf of all my fellow Native American communities, I, Jeff Doctor, am running for the U.S Congressional seat in the 9th District of North Carolina. I represent the Tonawanda Band of the Seneca Tribe. As a child growing up in Eden, New York – just outside of the Cattaraugus Indian Reservation, I’ve adopted values and principles from my family members and friends who lived on the Reservation and surrounding areas.

I am the only Native American running in the United States this election cycle, and I have already started picking up some key national endorsements such as the National Indian Gaming Association.

As your future Congressman, I will also focus in on advocating for the rights of Native Americans in my district and everywhere else in this country. We have seen far too few of our fellow Native Americans serve in Congress. I believe it is long past time to change that equation. You will have no greater advocate in the United States Congress if I am elected.

I need your help to make this happen. I can, and I will, win this race but I can’t succeed successfully without your support and financial contributions. A Native American tribe can contribute $2400 per election cycle (primary and general election periods) for $4800 total. Individuals can also contribute $2400 per election cycle, for $4800 total. I would ask you to please consider contributing $2400 from your tribe, or a personal contribution to the Doctor for Congress Campaign today.

Best regards,

Jeff Doctor
