Monday, September 29, 2014
Holiday Inn RDU, 930 Airport Blvd, Morrisville
5:30-6:30 Reception to meet candidates
6:30-7:30 State delegation candidates, including Sen.Tamara Barringer and Rep. Tom Murry
7:35-8:45 Wake County Commission candidates
Rep. Tom Murry and Sen. Tamara Barringer have requested our presence and support at this forum. Tamara asks us to wear her color teal and Tom asks us to wear a Tom Murry sticker. We did this for them in 2012 and they both commented on how powerful that was, not only as a show of support to them, but it was a bit rattling for their opponents to see the sea of teal with Tom stickers.
Let's pack the room with their supporters!
DID YOU KNOW.....
There is a North Carolina constitutional amendment on your November mid-term election ballot?
The amendment reads as follows:
Constitutional amendment providing that a person accused of any criminal offense for which the State is not seeking a sentence of death in superior court may, in writing or on the record in court and with the consent of the trial judge, waive the person's right to a trial by jury.
For information to help voters make an informed decision on something as important as an amendment to our state constitution, please click on the link below.
In addition, you may want to read the opinion of Becki Gray, VP of Outreach, John Locke Foundation. We will provide copies at the next luncheon.
As always, you can (and should) print your sample ballot before going to your polling place.
