Progress North Caroliona

Join us in Raleigh for Saturday's Pay-To-Play Pat Sidewalk Ball protest!

Rather than getting rid of the patronage system and the good ole boy network like he promised during his campaign, NC's new Governor Pat McCrory has elevated pay-to-play politics to a whole new level. See the details at www.paytoplaypat.com

That's why a number of progressive and good government groups are pushing back by staging a rally outside one of the political fundraising events McCrory has lent his name to. Join us on Saturday, January 12 from 6 PM to 7 PM at 500 South Salisbury Street, outside an inaugural ball sponsored by the political group, the Foundation for North Carolina (F-NC). We want to send a message to the media and to the public: not everyone in North Carolina believes in pay-to-play politics! How bad is it? F-NC is currently selling memberships for $50,00 and $25,000 -- with members getting to meet with McCrory behind closed doors to discuss policy as just one membership benefit. More details, including resources you can share to help publicize the event, after the jump.
