46 Days Until Election Day
Mobile & Print List of 2020 Democratic Candidates HERE
Tens of Thousands of North Carolina students returned to classrooms this week, many at their Kitchen Tables. Of course, there were mishaps, it was inevitable. But the most important thing is the health and safety of our children.
Governor Cooper and Democratic Legislators are working to keep our schools safe this year while ensuring they still provide our students with the education they need.
UNC Chapel-Hill has chosen to move to full online instruction for undergraduate students.
There is no perfect solution for reopening schools but we must prioritize teachers’ and students’ physical and emotional health above all.
We know that this will be a learning process for all of us – students, teachers, parents, school administrators, and public officials. We will stay flexible as we monitor the spread of COVID-19 in our state, review new evidence and guidance, and seek feedback from families, students, teachers and staff, and local communities.
It is critical that all North Carolinians continue to adhere to proper safety guidelines. If North Carolina experiences a new spike in cases, the re-opening of our schools would be at risk.
A full list of guidance schools are required to adhere to is available HERE.

46. TO HOLD DUKE ENERGY ACCOUNTABLE FOR POLLUTING OUR WATER
Duke Energy has 110 million tons of coal ash stored in leaking ponds around the state. Coal ash contains incredibly high levels mercury, cadmium, arsenic and other heavy metals that cause cancer and neurological problems. In 2014, 39,000 tons spilled into the Dan River near Eden, coating the riverbed in toxins and contaminating ground and surface water. Despite acknowledging leaks at eleven plants across the state, the company has faced few consequences. In April 2018, Duke Energy agreed to pay $156,000 for polluting ground and surface waters around three power plants, an amount comparable to a couple of days’ salary for the company’s CEO, Lynn Good.

Alamance County needs election workers for the 2020 Elections!
Check this link to the Alamance County Election Official Application. We especially need elections workers during the 17-day early voting period. We have a new early voting location at the Elmira Community Center in Burlington and we have newly expanded weekend voting, including Sunday voting. This means we need more elections workers than in the past. And the COVID virus has meant that many of our predominantly older elections workers who are more vulnerable have chosen not to return to work this year’s election.
You can also fill out the NC State Board of Elections Democracy Heroes form to be contacted by BOE staff: https://www.ncsbe.gov/get-involved
