Let’s Get This Party Started!
Thank you to all who attended the candidate rally. We had a great turnout of enthusiastic Democrats and heard from some exciting candidates. Democratic candidates include a candidate in every one of the 120 state House races and all 50 state Senate races. The filing for several local and judicial positions will be coming up soon. Get ready for an exciting election season. If you can help, please let us know with a call or an email.
Candidates on the program included: NC House candidates Rhonda Cole Schandevel and Joe Sam Queen; NC Senate candidate Bobby Kuppers; County Commission Chairman Kirk Kirkpatrick; County Commissioner Michael Sorrells; County Commissioner candidate Danny Davis; Tax Collector candidate Greg West; Register of Deeds Sherri Rogers; Superior Court Judge candidate Mark Melrose; and US House of Representatives candidate Phillip Price.
“GO, GRANNY D!” Coming Soon
Currently touring nationwide, actress Barbara Bates Smith and musician Jeff Sebens will present “Go, Granny D!” in Haywood County for the benefit of the Haywood Democrats.
Touting “You’re never too old to raise a little hell,” the 90-year-old Doris “Granny D” Haddock in 2000 blazed a 3200-mile trail across America for campaign finance reform, precipitating the passage of the McCain-Feingold Act. She continued her bipartisan reform efforts in countrywide voter registration drives, issuing her final challenge in 2010 at age 100: “Democracy is a running game. You huddle and you go back in. You keep going.”
Date and place will be announced soon, check back in with us here, or send us an email to get on our mailing list by clicking here.
Break the Majority
In the coming months, we will be reaching out to Democrat and Unaffiliated voters across Haywood County to enlist their support for the Democratic candidates running in the November election. To this end, we will be calling on you to help canvass, phone bank and attend events held by the candidates themselves. We will also need volunteers to staff booths at the various fairs in Haywood as well as support the office staff with data entry and other needs. If you have already volunteered, great! If not, or you want to be assured that your name is on our list, please go to the contact page and let us know. Click here! And thank you for helping us in any way you can. Hint: donations are always welcome.
