What People Are Saying About Martha Shafer

Martha with Ray & Carol Combs

I feel it is time for the citizens of Northwest and Western Guilford County to have our own representative in Raleigh and Martha is more than qualified to fill that roll. Let’s do it.

Ray Combs

Former Mayor, Oak Ridge

When I taught high school Theatre in Guilford County Schools Martha Shafer was among the most dedicated and helpful parents I ever encountered. She organized and ran our Fine Arts Booster program that greatly benefited the theatre, dance and visual arts programs. Martha could always be counted on to help out however it was needed. She loved working with the students and was an important part of the theatre and fine arts family. Even after her daughter graduated, Martha continued to be involved with the arts programs and often volunteered, despite no longer having formal ties to the school. She is an incredibly hard working and dedicated individual who is exactly the type of person we need in NC state government.

Former Teacher, Guilford County Schools

While serving on a church board with Martha, I found her to be an effective and forward-thinking leader. She served the best interest of the church and its congregation. Martha is certain to be a fair-minded representative of her fellow North Carolinians.

When I was a high school student, I was an active participant in our theatre program and knew Martha as an extremely hands-on volunteer who was passionate about the growth of every individual with whom she came in contact.
