March 15th Vote Matters Locally

Casting a vote in North Carolina’s presidential primary that might actually make a difference this year is a good reason to get to the polls on March 15th, but you can’t just stop there.

Better Community Engagement Needed

The talking-at-elected-officials-at-podiums-at-7-p.m. model isn’t working for the great majority of residents in our community. This method excludes too many people, and it privileges those who can spend many hours participating in lengthy meetings.
