Myth Busting: We Are Our Own Worst Enemy
A crowd of approximately 150 attended our first Myth Busting presentation featuring Dr. David Crane, a world-renowned international prosecutor, who discussed the truth about foreign and domestic terrorism in America. Additionally, special speaker Haywood resident, Andrew Morgan, gave a personal testimony of his faith, Islam.
The Mountaineer gave us great coverage of the event. The article can be found here; First Myth-Busting Event Exceeds Expectations.
Potential topics for future events include Healthcare and Climate Change.
North Carolina G.O.P. Chairman Indicted in Corruption Probe
The chairman of the North Carolina Republican Party and one of the state’s leading political donors together sought to use campaign contributions to bribe the state’s insurance commissioner, federal prosecutors said in an indictment that was unsealed on Tuesday.
The 23-page indictment — detailed with accounts of clandestine airport meetings and promises of millions of dollars in illicit donations — intensified the political tumult in a state already roiled by partisan warfare and a fraud-tainted congressional election. And it also showed how, at least in the judgment of prosecutors, a leading political operative and one of his most important benefactors tried to shape government oversight in one of the nation’s largest states. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/02/us/robin-hayes-nc-indictment.html
Volunteer Appreciation Brunch
Our Volunteer Appreciation Brunch was a great success! On January 12, despite the threat of ice and snow, the Haywood Democrats hosted about 60 volunteer for a get-together over loads of delicious food to contribute ideas and suggestions for our county party going forward. We have compiled these ideas and will be working on strategies and information sessions for this year.
