The path forward: A reinvigorated, refocused state party

One of Randy Voller’s last acts as chair was to announce that he would not run for re-election to helm the North Carolina Democratic Party. He must be commended for his announcement as it was a selfless ownership of responsibility for this year’s election and provides the opportunity for the Party to start anew ahead of the 2016 elections. North Carolina Democrats have a lot of work cut out for them, yet I remain optimistic for what lies ahead for our party.

Wake County Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor

Non partisan race, four candidates:

  • Jose D Frasier
  • Marshal Harvey
  • Matt Overby
  • Jennifer (Jenna) Austin Wadsworth

So far the only thing I've been able to find out about them is that the Republican party chose not to endorse Frasier.

Anyone know of any sources of information or have a reasoned opinion on any of them?


#4Pizzas and the Wake County Budget

Hi all,

Thanks to BlueNC for continuing to keep the spotlight on state and national issues. But I have a local one for you to think about.

You may know that I am running for Wake County Commission. I hope you've had a chance to see my first ad in my campaign. The theme is "Four Pizzas." You can see the ad below, and more details at 4Pizzas.org. If you like what you see, and you support paying Wake County's teachers a fair salary closer to the national average, please urge your commissioner to support the School Board's budget request.

I'm running for Wake County Commission

I am excited to tell you that I will be a candidate for the Wake County Commission in 2014. My opponent, Paul Coble, is a two term incumbent Republican who stands in the way of progress in Wake County. He has complained that advocates of transit "shouldn't be worried about things 20 or 30 years in the future" while we have "short term concerns." I believe the exact opposite. We can help resolve our short term concerns by thinking about the future, developing goals, and working to achieve those goals. Leadership requires vision. These commissioners don't have it.

I need your help. This is a huge county, with over 650,000 voters. And it isn't cheap to run in a place this big. Please give at www.BurnsforWake.org
