NC Court of Appeals, seat 4
We have 5 seats on the NC Court of Appeals on the ballot in November and we have five great candidates to fill those seats. Tricia Shields is the candidate for seat 4.
About Tricia: I began my career almost 35 years ago as a law clerk to Chief Judge Hedrick of the North Carolina Court of Appeals. Judge Hedrick taught me, by example, that a Court of Appeals Judge must be a student of the law, understand the law’s application to the facts of each case, and make decisions that are fair, impartial, and consistent.
In the years since, I have enjoyed an active trial practice, representing North Carolina’s citizens, businesses and professional boards before every level of our trial and appellate courts. I’ve represented clients in over 50 appeals in our state and federal courts, and often assisted other attorneys on appeals for their clients.
Our Court of Appeals is a hard-working court, handling more appeals than any level of North Carolina’s appellate courts. I am keenly aware that the Court of Appeals is the court of last resort for most cases, and that its decisions are of vital importance to the parties in each case.
I’m running to bring the Court the experience, talent, intellect and work-ethic to give every case the individual attention that it deserves.

The ACDP Marketing Committee the has been working to develop a strategy that we believe will raise the profile of Alamance Democrats and help us get the voter turnout we have to get. The Marketing Committee has selected a design that we feel captures who we are and what we value. We’ve got a billboard located on Interstate 40/85 between Exits 145 and 147 picked out that we think will allow us to reach as many potential 2020 voters as possible. now all we need to do is raise some money! Our goal is to fund the entire cost of the $3400 billboard through your generous donations. Please consider donating to this fund, as we believe we have a solid plan to make your dollars reach the most voters and potential voters possible. We’ve been too quiet it’s time to make some noise!

Give Your Time at Election Time.
Wondering what you can do to help ensure local elections meet the challenges of this health crisis?
Finding election workers is always a challenge and in this election the civic-minded seniors that usually fill these positions should get to sit this one out if they have health concerns. Early Voting workers especially work long days and a couple of long weeks. So if you want more weekend hours for Alamance County voters, giving your time to staff those hours is a great way to help. Also, these are paid positions. More Information HERE
