Message from Elaine Berry
This is a thank you. It is a thank you to ALL our brave candidates who spent months working incredibly hard to earn the right to represent the citizens of Alamance. This is also a thank you to the many volunteers who worked tirelessly in a variety of ways to support those dedicated candidates.
It is also a congratulations to the Democrats who won election: Ricky Hurtado, NC House District 63; Larry Brown, NC District Court Judge District 15A Seat 02; Katie Overby, NC District Court Judge District 15 A Seat 04; Patsy Simpson, Board of Education; Donna Davis Westbrooks, Board of Education; and Barrett Brown, Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor. We are so proud of you and happy for you.
It is also a plea for patience and for fortitude. We need to be patient and wait out the process as remaining votes are counted…and all votes should and must be counted. We also must have fortitude, especially our candidates. To run for office as a Democratic candidate in Alamance is not for the faint of heart. It is a challenge anywhere, but in Alamance County it is a 24-7 commitment where you will likely get attacked online, in person, in a newspaper, and even on signs by the roadside. Yet we ask that our candidates persist, that they learn from a loss, and they run again. And we pledge that once again we will support you whether it is with our dollars
or our time.
Thank you to EVERYONE who ran for office, put up signs, talked to your neighbor, made a donation,stuffed an envelope, staffed the ACDP office, dropped literature, phone banked, volunteered at the polls, wrote postcards, put packets together, shared a Tweet or “liked” us on Facebook.
And especially, thank you to EVERYONE who voted.
Congratulations to our victors:
Patsy Simpson – School Board
Donna Davis Westbrooks – School Board
Barrett Brown – Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor
Ricky Hurtado – NC House District 63
District Court Judges
We certainly had the best candidates. Some of them won this time and others did not but our bench is deep and our resolve is sure.
