85 Days Until Election Day
NC Supreme Court
The Supreme Court of North Carolina is the state’s highest court, and there is no further appeal from its decisions on matters of state law. It is made up of the Chief Justice, who also serves as head of the Judicial Branch, and six associate justices. Each justice serves an eight-year term. The Supreme Court has no jury and makes no determinations of fact, but it considers whether error occurred at trial or in judicial interpretation of the law.
Lucy Inman, a judge on the North Carolina Court of Appeals, is a candidate for the North Carolina Supreme Court in 2020. Judge Inman was elected statewide to the Court of Appeals in 2014.
Judge Inman was raised in Raleigh by parents who taught her the value of hard work and respect for people of all races, faiths, and walks of life. She graduated from Sanderson High School and earned a degree in English from N.C. State University.
Judge Inman’s first career was as a newspaper reporter. While covering court proceedings, she was inspired to participate in the justice system. She then moved to Chapel Hill and earned her law degree from UNC School of Law in 1990. Her first job after law school was working as a law clerk for North Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Jim Exum.
Judge Inman went on to practice civil litigation for 18 years, first in Los Angeles and then back home in Raleigh. Her clients included small business owners, large corporations, famous individuals, and lesser known — but no less important — survivors of negligence, fraud, and sexual abuse.
In 2010, Judge Inman was appointed by Governor Beverly Perdue to
serve as a special superior court judge. She served in that role for four years, presiding in hearings and jury trials across North Carolina. Since her election to the Court of Appeals, Judge Inman has authored over 400 appellate decisions in a wide variety of cases, including criminal, civil, and constitutional disputes. She has presided in thousands of other cases.
Judge Inman brings hard work and respect for all others to her personal and professional life every day. She hopes to bring these values, and equal justice for all, to the North Carolina Supreme Court.
Judge Inman and her husband Billy Warden live in Raleigh. They have two college-age children and a black lab rescue who keeps their nest from ever being empty.

Reason 85 to Flip NC
85. TO END THE POLITICIZATION OF OUR PUBLIC UNIVERSITY SYSTEM
Over the past decade, the GOP-controlled legislature made changes that sharply politicized the UNC Board of Governors, which now includes not a single self-identified Democrat among its 24 members. Over the past several years, the Board has used its power to cripple the system’s support for civil rights, closing the Center on Poverty, Work and Opportunity; barring the Center for Civil Rights from engaging in litigation; and creating a new campus “free-speech” policy with strong penalties for student protestors. In 2019, the Board announced a shocking plan to give a white supremacist group $2.5 million along with the recently toppled Silent Sam statue. In June 2020, the NC Senate appointed the godfather of the GOP’s regressive politics of the past decade, Art Pope, to the Board, adding to its extreme politicization.
August 17 – 20, the Democratic Party will formally nominate the next president and vice president of the United States at the 2020 Democratic National Convention, anchored in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Wondering what you can do to help ensure local elections meet the challenges of this health crisis?
Give Your Time at Election Time.
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
