Yesterday, more than 500 PA members--our friends, family, and neighbors--voted to endorse progressive voices for North Carolina Supreme Court, North Carolina Court of Appeals, Durham County District and Superior courts, and Soil & Water Conservation District Supervisors. PA members also voted to oppose all six Constitutional amendments.
The People's Alliance PAC endorsements are chosen by a democratic vote of our membership. Members had the opportunity to review candidates’ responses to the People’s Alliance PAC questionnaire, and hear a report on each race from an interview committee made up of People’s Alliance members. We choose the best candidates for the job--candidates whose values and work reflect the People’s Alliance vision and mission statement (English, En Español). PA PAC thanks all candidates running for office. Up and down the ballot we made tough choices between strong candidates seeking to represent Durham and the state.
