Linda Coleman NC House Seat

Since our new governor tapped Linda Coleman to head the Office of State Personnel, the District 39 NC House seat needs to be filled. The District Executive Committee will meet on Thursday, January 22nd at the Goodwin House (NCDP HQ) in Raleigh to pick the successor.

Bob Geary has a good rundown in the IndyWeek Blog

I shared the campaign trail with both Don Mial and Lindy Brown in 2006, and they both helped me out in 2008. I think the world of both of them, and I have heard great things about Darren Jackson, too. I am glad I don't have to make that choice, since I am in different House District.


Lindy should get it!

Lindy would be the ideal candidate to replace Coleman. She's smart, proven and electable! She's got two years in front of her to achieve some results to win the coleman seat again.

Lindy Brown would be much better at keeping that seat BLUE! Darren Jackson would be my 2nd pick because he's shown interest in the seat doing well in his campaign and knows the issues. Mial would be a distant 3rd.

But with Lindy taking Coleman's seat that puts the county commissioners back at 3 vs 3 and we just won a democratic majority. Maybe Mial could attempt an appointment to Lindy's seat and he might be electable since that was his first election target. Go Lindy!
