Join Dan in his run for Congress to put country before party and get things done.

Called to Serve

Dan McCready is a Marine Corps veteran, small business owner, husband, and father of four. Dan grew up going to Charlotte-Mecklenburg public schools and camping in the North Carolina foothills on his way to becoming an Eagle Scout. Dan is now running for U.S. Congress as a Democrat in North Carolina’s 9th District.

Dan first felt called to serve our country in the years after 9/11, which happened while he was in college. Dan felt he had been given a lot and wanted to give something back, so he joined the Marines. Dan led 65 Marines in the 2007 Iraq surge. While in Iraq, Dan found another calling. His fellow service members helped him find his Christian faith, and Dan was baptized in water from the Euphrates river. He went on to be honorably discharged as a Captain.

Dan returned home to start a family and a business. After graduating from Harvard Business School and working at McKinsey & Company, he started a small business in Charlotte with another Marine and helped build dozens of solar farms throughout North Carolina that put 700 North Carolinians to work in good-paying jobs. Dan played a key role in North Carolina becoming number two nationally for solar power, and today North Carolina supports over 30,000 clean energy jobs. Witnessing the loss of mom-and-pop shops to big box stores, Dan was also inspired to support the craftsmen who still make things here in America. Dan started an online retailer called This Land that supported more than 50 American craftsmen.

Today, Dan once again finds himself called to serve. Dan was more than happy to keep building his small business and to spend time with his four kids and his wife, Laura, a former children’s attorney. But today Dan sees politicians who are so concerned with partisan games, they’ve forgotten who they are supposed to serve. They put party before country, special interests before working families, and divisiveness before solutions. North Carolina families deserve better. Dan’s volunteering to fight once again — this time for the families of the 9th District.

“The company I built has helped put hundreds of folks to work building solar farms across North Carolina. I’ll work with Democrats and Republicans to make Congress run like a responsible business.”

As a Marine, I remember seeing pictures of Iraqis voting for the first time in their new democracy. Their faces were lit up with pride, their fingers dipped in blue ink like a badge of honor, proof that their voices had finally been heard. Here at home, we often take our right to vote for granted, but across the world, and throughout our own history, people have fought and died for that right. Voting is an American right. It’s a human right. Most of all, it’s a right worth defending. It’s up to all of us to defend it. ... See MoreSee Less
