JD Wooten’s Letter to the Community, June 5 , 2020 HERE

About JD:

JD Wooten is an intellectual property attorney and former U.S. Air Force officer and engineer. He was nominated to the U.S. Air Force Academy by U.S. Senator Jesse Helms and U.S. Representative David Price and received his appointment in 2003.  While at the Academy, JD earned his parachute wings, commanded Cadet Squadron 40, raced for the USAFA Cycling Team, and studied aeronautical engineering.  He was a 2007 Rhodes Scholar nominee and recipient of the Gladys Noon Spellman Fellowship Award to attend the University of Maryland School of Public Policy.  At UMD he earned a Masters of Public Policy in International Security and Economic Policy. After a decade of military service, JD left active duty to attend Wake Forest University School of Law. Upon graduation, JD joined the intellectual property group at Womble Bond Dickinson where he helps clients secure and protect their creative rights through patents, trademarks, and copyrights.  JD’s primary focus is on patent and trademark litigation in federal courts.  JD’s family has called North Carolina home for over twenty generations, and they are proud to still call North Carolina home today.

Important Views :

“The fight for equality is intertwined with all of our other major aspirations for this campaign.  Whether discussing access to affordable healthcare, achieving stellar public education, promoting economic development and recovery, or even tackling gerrymandering, there are critical components of equality woven into each. I do not view this campaign or our platform as a discreet set of policy goals.  Instead, I see it as a comprehensive strategy for how we make North Carolina better for everyone.  For example, access to affordable healthcare is a worthy aspiration in and of itself, but it is also intimately related to our other ambitions.  A healthy student is more likely to succeed in school, and a healthy worker more likely to earn a living wage.  Conversely, an educated student is more likely to secure a good job, earn a solid income, and have better access to healthcare.” JD Wooten

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

One thought on “ACDP News July 14, 2020

  1. My wife, Diane, and I, are registered Democrats, who moved from Frederick, MD to a Retirement Community in Burlington two years ago and have made friends with people of all political parties. We did not realize that the campaigns in NC such as the Senate 24 District for Guilford and Burlington Counties could be so vicious until we received a wanted criminal-type poster in our US mail addressed to us from the North Carolina Senate Majority Fund showing a photograph of a young bearded man with a sign above his head reading “Fraud Alert”. Below his picture it stated State Senate Candidate JD Wooten committed Fraud on his VA mortgage loan. I found several of the posters on the counter (and in the trash) of our senior community mail room that had been mailed to several other residents. I later found online the news broadcast from WXII -12 addressing this issue. I concluded that Mr. Wooten, probably had not violated VA rules. Particularly, there was no information produced by his opponent that he had been convicted in court of this fraudulent act, a felony crime, or had even appeared in court as a defendant. Without breaking the law or violating NC election rules can the NC Senate Majority Fund state emphatically (not probably) in a document delivered by US mail to private individuals such us and the general public that MR Wooten Committed (Felony Fraud) if he has not been tried in court and convicted. Politics was rough in Maryland, but I am stunned by this Guilty Without Legal Trial behavior. Mr Wooten has an excellent background to represent our mainly Democratic interests for the Senate position. His opponent seems to have good experience serving her community politically and in her career, she just mostly represents different viewpoints than ours. I am sorry she may have let the political organizations supporting her sway her away from her normal path of correctness and decency on handling this issue.
    Sincerely, John William (Bill) Rowland
