Paul Coble, candidate for Congress in District 13 will be our guest speaker.  Paul Coble has the kind of “regular guy” background you don’t see often in Washington.  He’s built a successful business, raised a family, sent his children to public schools and been active in his local

Paul Coble for Congress community as Mayor of Raleigh and Chairman of the Wake County Commissioners – where he fought to eliminate wasteful spending, improve local services, streamline bureaucracy and balanced the budgets every year.

Paul was born and raised in Raleigh, North Carolina.  Even as a child, he was exposed to issues of the day.  His aunt and uncle were Dot and Jesse Helms.  Those family discussions became an important catalyst in shaping a young boy’s attitudes regarding duty to community and nation – as well as fundamental conservative principles.  Paul attended public schools in Raleigh where he was a stand out and Captain on the Broughton High school wrestling team.  He then went on to Wake Forest University where he received a Bachelor of Science degree in business.  Later, Paul earned a RHU (Registered Health Underwriter) degree from Northeastern University in 1992.

Paul and Connie Kearney were married in 1977 and Paul started his Insurance business in 1982.  Paul and Connie have two adult daughters who live in the Raleigh area. (excerpt from Paul Coble's website)

December Meeting

Bill Randall, candidate for Congress in District 13 will be our special guest speaker!  Bill Randall is a confident, intelligent individual with a long track record of accomplishments spanning his military, business and personal life. He greets people and challenges with genuine head-on enthusiasm. During conversations he "listens" intently, responds straight-forwardly and adds a sprinkle of personal anecdotes about time-honored family values, God, country, and the individual rights, liberties and welfare of all. Joining the U.S. House of Representatives as North Carolina’s 13th District representative is his newest, possibly most consequential challenge. Past achievements, know-how, education and first-hand experience with his constituents’ needs and poor legislation results has prepared him for this task. (excerpt from Bill Randall's website)
