Charlie Reece: "I am proud to endorse Dave Hall’s candidacy for the Durham district court bench"

Dave Hall has always stood up for the rights of poor people, folks victimized by the criminal justice system, and our formerly incarcerated neighbors. Dave possesses a deep knowledge of the law, but he also possesses a deep understanding that those who appear in our courts are real people with real lives. In 2014, Dave’s work with the FADE Coalition and the Southern Coalition for Social Justice helped bring about significant reforms in the policies and practices of the Durham Police Department — reforms that have made our city a better, safer and fairer community. I am confident that Dave will work as a district court judge to make Durham’s system of justice better, safer and fairer as well.

Dave Hall has the judgment, the temperament and the experience to excel as a district court judge here in Durham. I am happy to call Dave my friend, and I’m excited about the possibility that I will soon have the privilege of calling him “Your Honor.” I am proud to endorse Dave Hall’s candidacy for the Durham district court bench.

This November, voters will decide if they want to protect North Carolina’s constitution or dramatically change it. Republican leaders hastily wrote and placed six amendments on the ballot with misleading language, hoping you won’t pay close attention to what these constitutional changes will do or why you are asked to vote on them.

None of these amendments are necessary, and some are outright dangerous. More disturbingly, voters are being asked to give a green light to the supermajority to fill in the blanks on how these amendments will actually work in November, before any new legislators are seated. Here’s a closer look.
