Chatham Schools Listening Tour
Have you heard about the new Chatham County School Superintendent's 'listening tour'? This is your opportunity to share thoughts and opinions on the school district and the education of our children. This doesn't seem to be widely publicized for whatever reason. Here is the link for the dates, locations and times next week: https://www.chatham.k12.nc.us/relationshipsmatter. We need conservatives to express their opinion on education.
Chatham September Meeting
Thanks to everyone who attended the Chatham GOP open meeting on September 14. My thoughts after the meeting:
- When discussing Critical Race Theory with anyone, we need to understand exactly what that term means, in context, and have a firm grasp on concepts and lesson plans that are used. CRT means different things to each of us, and it is mainly used by the Left to divide us. We cannot let that happen.
- The meeting had some good open discussions; we all have different viewpoints from where we come from, our age, experiences, upbringing, skin color
We have to continue to support the ideas of the Constitution and our Founders. THAT has to be one of our primary driving forces.
We will continue to have periodic open meetings. Please attend!
The redistricting fights are beginning, even before the first map has been published. The Left is trying to get Democrat-sponsored comments into the public record so that they can use them for future lawsuits (see https://www.ncpoliticalnews.com/news/senator-blasts-left-wing-redistricting-activists-social-media-complaint).
The Legislature is scheduled to vote on the Budget the first week in October. I'm guessing we will see the first redistricting maps shortly after that vote.
Please comment to the Legislature on redistricting at this site; it only takes a couple minutes at https://www.ncleg.gov/requestforcomments/38
Here is what I said; you can use it or your own words, but please comment.
"I urge the North Carolina Legislature to keep county boundary integrity: do not break a county into separate legislative or congressional districts. That only serves to divide neighbors and weakens the impact of a citizens voice in our government. Particularly, in Chatham County, do not split it into various districts. Your previous legislative boundaries have enhanced a partisan divide between separate parts of the county."
Open Precinct Judge Position
We have an open Republican Precinct Judge position in East Williams (for the Primary and General election day). I have to nominate a replacement very soon. If you live in East Williams and would like to be considered, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org before Sunday, September 26.
Reminder - we need candidates, especially for the local positions of School Board districts 3, 4, and 5, and Commissioner districts 3, 4, and 5. If we haven't already spoken about your possible candidacy, please contact met at email@example.com. Time is starting to run short for making a decision.
My letter to the editor was in last week's Chatham News & Record: Citizen or Subject? referring to Biden's vaccine mandate on companies. You can view the letter here.
It is the people who control the Government, not the Government the people.
