Jennell Reddick for Alderman

Screen Shot 2022-01-15 at 2.55.35 PM.png

Our campaign will be focused on three key points: Economic Development, Education and Bridging the Gap

As the president of R.L. Thompson Company, a company my father started in 2006.  I have seen first hand how important local support is to our community and the continuous need to adapt to unplanned transitions.


Now more than ever, workforce and economic development is vital to the growth and sustainability of our city.  The saying “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day.  Teach him to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” by Lao Tzu is ever so relevant today.  Education is my passion.  I love teaching those who others have declared unreachable or unteachable.  As an educator, I know that education changes our mindset.  There are many resources and programs available that I will help connect to the citizens of New Bern I will represent, as well as offer to our entire community through collaboration with other Alderman and officials alike.


As your next Alderman, I will make the tough decisions! Likewise, I will work together with my colleagues to build a better New Bern for us all.  When we work together, we will be better!

I am asking you, my friends, family, and citizens for your support and prayers as we move forward in bridging the gap.  


Elect Jennell Reddick on Tuesday, May 17th , 2022.
