Hi, I'm Wendy

Wendy Kennedy - Head Shot - High Res II.jpg

I’m a wife, mother, and professional. Who pays attention and wants to help build a stronger future for Catawba County.

My husband, Rich, and I live in Sherrills Ford.  We have been in North Carolina for 27 years and moved from Charlotte to Sherrills Ford for a better quality of life.  We have three beautiful adult daughters, one adorable, lively 5-year-old granddaughter, two frisky cats, and a puppy on the way!  We like to spend time outdoors. We enjoy riding our motorcycles, hiking in our beautiful Bue Ridge mountains, and enjoying time with family and friends on Lake Norman.

I am a computer science and mathematics graduate of East Carolina University.  I work in enterprise software as a Strategic Relationship Manager with a focus on the financial services industry.

The Change We Need

I’m running to be your county commissioner to advocate for you, the people of Catawba County. I want to maintain -- and improve -- our way of life, through smarter planning, smarter development, and smarter growth.

In short, sound oversight and leadership.

What I Believe
  • Elected officials must represent everyone in their community

  • We can grow and prosper, if we effectively manage our resources, and focus on the long-term needs of our residents and businesses

  • Growth must be aligned with infrastructure capacity

  • Government serves us

  • Together, we can make a difference!
