US Senate

Cheri Beasley

I’m running for Senate to be an independent voice who stands up for North Carolina and what’s right for our state- regardless of the politics. And I will bring the same values I was raised with — hard work, integrity, and justice — to fight for every person in our state.” Donate

US House of Representatives

Valerie Foushee

Valerie went from serving on the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City School Board, to being the first African American female elected to the Orange County Board of Commissioners, to serving in the North Carolina state House and then state Senate. In each of those elected positions, Valerie was focused on the issues that matter most; a good education, creating good-paying jobs, and being a champion for underrepresented communities.

In the General Assembly, Valerie has worked across the aisle to increase access to health care and end the practice of child marriage. Donate

He brings more than 2 decades of proven leadership,  business acumen and lived experiences missing from the current board of County Commissioners. He plans to fight for those that have been left out and silenced all across the county and will bring a fresh perspective to the many challenges we face in Alamance County.  Donate

Board of Education

Seneca Rogers

I’m finding a way to strengthen our school system and the students and families it serves should be the clear priority for anyone who is elected to the school board. I am not looking for ways to use politics to stoke anger and fear — we’ve got enough folks doing that.

Seneca Rogers for Alamance Burlington School Board is showing people how we can use real leadership to help our school system and our students, in a way that is genuine, informed and actually tries to get something done.

He found his passion for public service while at UNC, mentoring other high school students who grew up in similar circumstances and were working hard to make their own dreams come true. He attended graduate school at Princeton University, focusing on how to create effective public policy to fight poverty and inequality and build strong, vibrant communities. Donate

NC House 64

We believe that everyone—the poor as well as the affluent, the weak as well as the powerful, the newcomer as well as the native—deserves a place at the table. We believe that every member of our community deserves a secure and comfortable home, a friendly and safe community, a way to make a living, quality and accessible healthcare for ourselves and our loved ones.

Soil and Water Conservation

Donna Vanhook

Brandy Whittaker  

“I grew up in Northern Alamance sandwiched between a micro farm owned by my family and tobacco farms. We spent the summers of my childhood working the farm to harvest fresh produce for cooking or canning. While land conservation wasn’t on my radar then, it certainly is now.

I’m running for ACSWC to bridge the gap of what once was in the farming and conservation communities and what could be. We need to make grants more widely available to Micro Farmers, Urban Farmers, and Minority Farmers. We also need to strengthen the education of young potential farmers by funding programs for environmental growth. I would love to expand our 4H offerings and get the info into more homes.

NC COURT OF APPEALS JUDGE SEAT 10

Gale Murray Adams

Raised in the tobacco fields of Warren County by a single mother of four, I learned, at an early age, the importance of hard work. I watched my mother struggle to provide for her four children while instilling in us the importance of having faith, staying focused, and finishing what you start.

After graduating from high school, I attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I double majored in English and Economics. After finishing in just over three years, I attended North Carolina Central University School of Law, often working three to four jobs to pay my way through. Donate
