Friends and especially SEC members: There is a lot at stake on the ballot this year and at the top of that list is our State Courts. In addition to the 5 top judges we have been working on since May, there is a 6th Court of Appeals race with 8 registered Dems and 11 others running for one seat. Due to late filing for this seat there is not a primary, just a free for all. The NC Democratic Party (via its Executive Council) is meeting this weekend to choose a candidate to endorse in that race.
Many of you are already supporting a candidate and some, like me, have already voted. Others have not gotten much info on all the candidates. The State Chair appointed a committee to gather background and other relevant details on our candidates and they will each be given an opportunity to speak to the Council before we vote. If you want your voice heard you should reach out to your Executive Council and give your opinion. Even better, show up and lobby for your favorite candidate. This meeting at the Goodwin House, as is every NCDP meeting, is open to any Democrat in NC. We need to elect a solid Democrat to this seat and our Party has the opportunity engage in it.
I don't want to publicly post the list and contact info for the entire Council, but you can get it from HQ or PM me for more details.
