Randy Voller, recently re-elected mayor of Pittsboro, Chair of the Chatham County Democratic Party, and the force behind Chatham County's electoral U-turn earlier this month, will lead the workshop on how to grow a new generation of elected officials who will represent the 99% by recruiting, supporting, and electing progressive candidates beginning at the local level.

The Orange-Chatham Progressive Democrats and the Progressive Democrats of NC will sponsor a public forum on the Citizens United decision on April 11th, from 4-5:30 pm at the Carrboro Century Center in Carrboro. Gene Nichol of UNC Law School will be the primary speaker.
It's been more than a week since the Progressive Democrats of North Carolina issued a statement and a letter to NCDP Chairman David Young asking him to champion a very reasonable request to clean up North Carolina fund raising.
PDNC has released a statement today that calls for the North Carolina Democratic Party to lead the fight against political corruption. We have invited Party Chair David Young (see letter here) to join us in making sure that the necessary reforms are put into place. We need to make sure that the scandals that have discredited our party in recent years--with the revelations that have surfaced in the Easley hearings being just the latest outrage in a string of far too many-will not continue to damage the Democratic Party or the democratic process.
Saturday was amazing! We were treated first to Sec. Elaine Marshall’s sharp-witted down home talk, “I understand the people of North Carolina” she said and then told a story of when she was first elected to office.
We are honored to announce that we will have four probable Democratic US Senate candidates for Senator Richard Burr's seat to speak at the Progressive Democrats of North Carolina's 6th Annual Convention this Saturday.
Elaine Marshall will address the convention during the opening remarks portion, and the other three candidates (Cal Cunningham, Kenneth Lewis, Mayor Kevin Foy) will address the convention at 3:45pm to 4:30pm.
