Greensboro Voter Guide from Replacements Ltd PAC

NOTE:  Please see the updated guide for today’s General Election here:

http://lostinthe21stcentury.com/2011/11/06/greensboro-voter-guide-for-general-election/

 

I want to share this with my fellow Progressives in Greensboro, NC, Jamestown and Guilford County….

Below is the list of endorsements from Replacements Pac for the October Primary elections.

These candidates are not just supportive of GLBT rights, but are good Progressive choices for City Council and Mayor.

I encourage you to consider supporting these candidates on the Primary Election on October 11th and during early voting starting September 22nd.

PLEASE VOTE!!!!  It does matter.  A lot…..

Unless you are a Republican, then I would suggest just spending the day at the Spa…..

The Candidates in Bold Red Print are the ones I know I will be personally voting for in my District or At-Large.  You may vote for 3 At-Large City Council candidates and I have wish we had the chance to vote for 4 as I really like Marikay Abuzuaiter, too…

Please do NOT vote for Bill Knight for Mayor or Mary Rakestraw in District 4

Early Voting

September 22 – October 8

Primary Election:  Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

    I attended a Mayoral & District Candidate Forum last week at the Greensboro Historical Museum and was impressed by Tom Phillips. Bradford Cone is the only Democrat running for Mayor, but he’s young, green behind the ears, and not very articulate unfortunately. Bill Knight nor Robbie Perkins attended this forum. As for the District Candidates I’ll definitely vote for Nancy Hoffmann for Dist.4. Mary Rakestraw nor Tony Collins were present during the forum. Scott, I believe all districts have primaries as no incumbent is running unopposed. And, if you are interested there is an At-Large Candidate Forum tonight @ Greensboro College -Royce Reynolds Center(old YMCA on W.Market & Tate Sts.) beginning at 7p, sponsored by the League of Women’s Voters & Greensboro Voters’ Alliance. I have a schedule of the free candidate forums for Sept. & Oct. if your interested. There is an all candidate forum on Sept.29 @ Civil Rights Museum @ 6pm, hosted by Conservatives for Guilford Cty, but that is $5.(figures!)
