A Message from Wayne Goodwin, NCDP Chair

Note: I posted the message, below, on Facebook and Twitter a few days ago, primarily for members of the NCDP State Executive Committee and active Dems statewide, and am now providing it here as a personal courtesy to fellow BlueNC members, some of whom were very kind to encourage me to seek the post of NCDP chairman two years ago.

My fellow NC Democrats:

NC Alternative Parties Hail Passage of Major Ballot Access Reform Bill

North Carolina’s Libertarian, Green, and Constitution parties issued this statement in response to the General Assembly's override of the governor's veto of a major ballot access reform bill:

North Carolina's Sore Loser

A trend on Twitter this morning is based on a New York Times piece titled, "North Carolina's Sore Loser." Names have been left off to protect the innocent.

Dems & Repubs BOTH voted this guy out. Remember that Trumpzoids. NC went Trump but kicked McCrory to the curb

Gov. Pat McCrory, rejected by the voters, is engaging in a shameless attack on the electoral system.

Since GOP voter suppression didn't work, Repub Gov refuses to cede office =>

Tuesday is election day in many places in NC

from WTVD 11 news this morning:

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- Tuesday is Election Day in North Carolina. While there are no statewide races, in the ABC11 viewing area, Cumberland, Durham, Edgecombe, Nash, Harnett, Vance, Wake, and Wayne counties all have local elections.

Raleigh is picking a mayor and city council. Mayor Nancy McFarlane's running for reelection on a platform of economic development for all, growing downtown, and boosting transit

Re-focus needed

A few days ago I had the privilege of addressing Scotland County citizens in Laurinburg. Here's a link to the newspaper coverage of my visit.

Among my comments, there is this assertion:

“For us to govern, we’ve got to win first, and for us to win we’ve got to get our message out, and for us to get our message out we’ve got to be organized, and for us to be organized we’ve got to have meetings like this even on rainy, dreary days,” Goodwin said from inside the Atkinson Street American Legion post.

In the coming months heading into 2016 we have an obligation - a civic duty - as North Carolina citizens to speak up, organize and rally voters to turn out on Election Day. Too much hangs in the balance for the State we love (and its future) for us to do otherwise.

SCOTUS plays Dictionary

Will North Carolina ever see the establishment of an independent commission to draw boundary lines for redistricting? Polls say 70% of our citizens would support an impartial effort. But what happens at the Supreme Court Of the US this year may be more important than the bill currently in our legislature. (SB 92)
