Alamance County Board of Commissioners

Dreama Caldwell

“Government should be a reflection of the people it serves. Poor, working class, homeless, LGBTQ, black and brown communities all deserve a seat at the table when discussing issues within our county. Hearing from various lenses and experiences is important.”

Being elected as the first black woman to the Alamance County Commissioners board is important to me. “When you don’t see yourself you feel invisible.”

Government should be a reflection of the people it serves. Poor, working class, homeless, LGBTQ, black and brown communities all deserve a seat at the tables when discussing issues within our county. Hearing from various lenses and experiences is important.

Representation is as important to the present as it is to the future. Voting for me for County Commissioners is a sign of change and inspires black, brown children and all girls to be whatever they want to be, even a politician!

I’ve always wanted to be a politican and lawyer, neither of which I thought was possible. Growing up I didn’t known any black politicians and just within the last few years met black women lawyers.

I have been told that I’m not the typical politician because of my lack of political experience. However my lived experience with public housing, EBT, Medicaid, WIC, criminal justice system and even homelessness can not be learned in school. Although not typical, neither has my path to escape the vicious cycle of poverty.

I have allowed the fact that I lacked political experience, the education degrees, money and even my race to keep me stagnant for far too many years. I decided to stop wishing for change and become a part of the changes I wanted to see happen. So, after years of community service and organizing, I decided to enter the crowded county commissioner race. Thankfully with your support I won in the primaries to become 1 of 3 Democratic candidates for county commission.

I continue to ask for your help, support and vote to become the 1st Black Woman to gain a seat ( 3 seats will be open) on the Alamance County Commissioner Board. Can I count on your vote in the General Election on November 3, 2020?
Would you donate today to show you’re standing in solidarity with us https://secure.actblue.com/donate/supportdjc ?

Reason 81 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
