Welcome to my constituent services website for North Carolina’s House District 10. I hope you’ll find these pages helpful in better understanding the work we’ll undertake during the 2019-2020 session of the North Carolina General Assembly.
There are hundreds of informative articles on a wide-range of topics (listed in an index down the right hand side) and a host of helpful resources and other links throughout the site. Please use it to regularly learn more about our business in the state legislature and to keep me informed of the things that are important to you. You can also follow me on Facebook and Twitter for regular updates.
I’m very honored for the opportunity to serve the people of Craven, Greene, Lenoir and Wayne Counties. If I or my staff can be of any assistance for any reason, please never hesitate to contact me directly by email or at the address and telephone number below. Thank you.

As a strong and passionate advocate for Eastern NC, Rep. Bell has been a leading voice for our agriculture, military and rural communities. As the Chairman of the House Select Committee on Disaster Relief, he has been working tirelessly to help the victims of Hurricanes Matthew and Florence get the resources and help they need. Rep. Bell believes now more than ever the people of Eastern NC need a strong and effective voice in Raleigh, especially as the urban-rural divide only continues to grow.
During his time in office, he has also fought to help improve the quality of life for all North Carolinians through fewer taxes, improved education, balanced budgets, new jobs and more freedom and opportunities. He has proudly championed legislation that supports our farmers, veterans, sportsmen, students and service members.
