Alamance County Board of Commissioners
“I want Alamance County to be the place where young people will want to settle, have successful careers, and raise their families!” —Bob Byrd
Since arriving in Alamance County decades ago, I’ve been passionate about our community, helping to improve life here for everyone. I’ve done this through my career in healthcare administration and through my extensive community service with public education, racial equity, health care and mental health, the elderly, our youth, the arts, and poverty. Yet, I never aspired to be a politician or to hold public office until I served on the school system’s vision plan committee.
Then, I realized I could make a difference for our schools and our youth as a county
commissioner. I ran, won, and proudly served as the only Democrat on the Board of
Commissioners for four years.
I’m proud of my accomplishments during my term around public education, economic development and attracting good jobs, public transportation, environmental issues, and my work with law enforcement to reduce the number of persons with mental illness in our jail. But while progress was made, my work is not done. That is why I am running again for a second term and
ask for your vote.
I want to see Alamance County be the place where young people will WANT to settle, have successful careers, and raise their families, an inclusive community free of biases and prejudices where everyone can be successful.
Experience matters. At Alamance Regional Medical Center, I served for 35 years as a member of the senior executive team. My work there and throughout the community has given me the background, values, and skills that are truly relevant and invaluable in serving as your commissioner once again. I know how to think strategically, budget and invest, collaborate with others and build bridges, work with all kinds of people, establish relationships to get things done, and work on teams effectively.
I’m ready and excited to serve you again! I ask for your vote on November 3. Visit my website at bobbyrd.us. Donations are needed and welcomed: www.bit.ly/electbobbyrd Thank you!
“Proven leadership for an Alamance County that works for everyone! Bring Back Bob Byrd.

Reason 82 to Flip NC
FOR A SCIENCE-BASED RESPONSE TO THE COVID PANDEMIC
Since the outset, Gov. Cooper has charted North Carolina’s path through the pandemic better than any of our neighboring states by dialing up or down measures that slow the spread of the virus based on a scientific understanding of the disease and the best available information on testing and trends. Meanwhile, following Florida’s and Texas’s lead, Republican elected officials in North Carolina have pushed a dangerous course to re-open everything from bars to gyms and bowling alleys. We need a state government that will use the best available science to guide us through these difficult times and not recklessly put lives in danger for political gain.

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
