Lillian's List is endorsing Valerie, so you know she's been thoroughly vetted to be solidly progressive and pro-woman. Invitation details here.
In my view, Valerie is a terrific NC House candidate, running a strong campaign in a wildly gerrymandered district against an extremist teabagger. Valerie is thoughtful on all the issues, but two of her priorities really appeal to me.
Restore funding to all levels of education
Education is the foundation of our future. North Carolina’s children must be prepared to begin school and have meaningful access to early intervention and early failure prevention. In order to be competitive nationally and globally, we must support our K – 12 programs and strengthen our community colleges and public universities.
Restore transparency to government
Citizens have the right to be informed and aware of actions taken and about to be taken by our legislature, to provide meaningful input, and to know that the process is fair.
The key word here is "restore." And Valerie is one of the people we need in Raleigh to get that work done. Please come if you can, and if you can't, don't hesitate to make a contribution online.
