Remember to vote in the July 17 Runoff Election. Early voting is underway. Here are the candidates we'll have to choose from in eastern Wake County (linked if available):
NC Commissioner of Insurance
The NC General Assembly has published their proposed district lines. Go to http://ncleg.net/gis/RandR07/redistricting.html for more information.
Here in eastern Wake County, it looks like we will have two districts dividing our area. The good news there is that it looks like we may finally be able to elect the conservative representation that eastern Wake citizens have tried to do for years.
The districts are not yet finalized, but we do not expect major changes. After the legislature passes the redistricting bills in the special session, they will still have to go through the process of judicial review and litigation. We applaud the conservatives on the redistricting committee who have worked hard to get these done in time to go through the inevitable judicial process.
On Tuesday, August 16, 2011, the Wake GOP will be opening a new office that will serve as headquarters for their campaign efforts. The office will be staffed daily and will be a source of information and assistance for voters as well as volunteers and campaigns.
They will need volunteers and supplies and we want to do our part to represent eastern Wake County. Volunteers will be making phone calls, helping with mailers, and more. The supply needs will include everything from basic pens and paper up to equipment and furnishing.
