Durham PA-PAC endorses people who will work for YOU
Electing progressive candidates in Durham and North Carolina means preventing discrimination legislation. Electing progressives means protecting our natural resources. Electing progressives means fighting for social justice. With progressives in office, we can work together on all the issues that matter to us.
President and Vice-President – BARACK OBAMA & JOE BIDEN; they have fought for us and deserve our vote!
US Congress District 1 – G. K. BUTTERFIELD; District 4 – DAVID PRICE; District 6 – TONY FORIEST; District 13 – CHARLES MALONE; these Democrats will Work for Durham in Washington and work to fix Congress.
Governor – WALTER DALTON will fight for education, human rights, and a free and fair ballot;
Lt. Governor – LINDA COLEMAN is a strong progressive with a remarkable record of service.
Attorney General – ROY COOPER; Auditor - BETH WOOD; Commissioner of Agriculture – WALTER SMITH; Commissioner of Insurance – WAYNE GOODWIN; Commissioner of Labor – JOHN BROOKS; Secretary of State – ELAINE MARSHALL; Superintendent of Public Instruction – JUNE ATKINSON; State Treasurer – JANET COWELL
N.C. Senate District 20 – FLOYD MCKISSICK; District 22 – MIKE WOODARD; N.C. House District 29 – LARRY HALL; District 30 – PAUL LUEBKE ; District 31 – H. M. (MICKEY) MICHAUX; District 50 – VALERIE FOUSHEE – this legislative team is needed to carry our progressive values to Raleigh.
Board of County Commissioners we encourage voting for only three candidates - FRED FOSTER, JR., WENDY JACOBS, and ELLEN RECKHOW. PA-PAC does not endorse incumbent commissioners Howerton and Page because they have committed themselves to the massive 751 development in the Jordan Lake watershed and they are unreliable on equal rights for gay and lesbian people. Unaffiliated candidate Omar Beasley has neither a sufficient record of service nor views that are sufficiently aligned with our values to enable us to endorse him. A vote for Beasley, Howerton, or Page puts our best candidates at risk.
This will not affect your straight ticket vote in other races. You will still need to FLIP YOUR BALLOT and vote for progressive Judges. This is the best way to secure a progressive Durham, a progressive North Carolina, and a progressive United States.
Register of Deeds – WILLIE COVINGTON
