83 Days Until Election Day


Alamance County Board of Commissioners

Kristen Powers

‘Alamance County’s budget must reflect the values of all the people who live here.”

The Community Platform

During the last three months of 2019, we surveyed hundreds of Alamance County residents about the issues they see in their communities. We visited churches, barbershops, ACC, schools, community events, and dozens of homes. The below platform is based on those conversations.


Our Values

The issue of racism and discrimination came up over and over again in our surveys. We believe racial equity is interwoven into every policy platform. Therefore, we have made racial equity one of our guiding values.

Invest in public education
Every child deserves a high quality education delivered in safe and healthy buildings. We must invest in our school infrastructure and our teachers.

Secure our basic needs
Safe, secure housing and a living wage are essential to our well-being. As county commissioner, Kristen will ensure our county employees are paid a living wage. She will work with businesses, landlords, and housing authorities to make sure our housing options are safe, healthy, and affordable.

Improve access to crucial services
A community cannot succeed unless everyone has equal access to the same services. Our county services and infrastructure must be accessible to people with different physical and mental abilities, as well as those with different language needs.

Fight to protect our environment
Counties can lead the way on protecting our natural resources and reducing the impact of climate change. Kristen opposes the construction of the MVP Southgate pipeline and the Snow Camp Mine. She will also invest in renewable energies for county operations.

Reason 83 to Flip NC

TO END THE CRIMINALIZATION OF POVERTY

In 2017, the NCGA passed legislation making it much more difficult for courts to waive court fines and fees for those who can’t afford to pay. Without waivers, these fines and fees lead to the incarceration of the poor simply because they cannot pay, essentially creating modern-day debtors prisons.

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
