North Carolina State Senator Michael Woodard (NC-22) represents Durham County. He enjoys using the skills garnered from his career to solve problems for his community though legislation. 

Woodard considers helping codify the bipartisan North Carolina Clean Energy Plan to be his greatest accomplishment. His concern for the environment also extends to wildlife, as he's working to protecting a rookery for herons in a local nature preserve.

He would take an out-of-town visitor to a Durham Bulls baseball game. He is currently reading "The Creative Habit" by Twyla Tharp.
