Anyone who keeps up with North Carolina Democratic politics no doubt knows the outcome of the elections and the impact it will have on the Democratic party in North Carolina.
There are a few key points we need to take with us as we continue the fight to bring the blue back to NC.
Both David Parker and Gwen Wilkins tirelessly worked hard and long hours to sustain and promote the North Carolina Democratic Party. We owe them our thanks. It’s a thankless job without pay.
Over the past few years the NCDP has faced unique challenges. We’ve had some success but we can always improve. That needed improvement doesn’t reflect negatively on any one person and it isn’t a criticism.
Don’t buy into the media news hype that we’re fragmented and fighting amongst ourselves. Do we have differences? Yes, because we are inclusive and reach out to all groups. Not everyone will agree with each other on every issue. But, that’s what makes us strong. It makes us unique. And, it shows we care!
TV, radio and newspaper reporters will translate our communication process into bickering and drama. But, just because they say that doesn’t make it so. After all, if the media couldn’t connect a drama angle in the reporting they wouldn’t spend any time covering our events.
At the end of the day, the NCDP has a lot of talented people with different life experiences expressing the need to move North Carolina forward. And we wouldn’t want it any other way.
We believe in people. And, we believe that a person’s worth is measured by their heart and not their bank account.
