A Letter from Dan: 2018 NC Voting Guide

Posted on

Dear Client:

A lot of our friends, and our clients, have told us that they would like to be better informed about candidates running for public office in the important Nov. 6. General Election.  So, I have included in this letter a list of judicial and legislative candidates that I believe will best support and defend the rights of the PEOPLE of North Carolina, rather than big corporations, insurance companies and special interests.

The judicial races are extremely important to the rights of working people. We need North Carolina Court of Appeals Judges and Supreme Court Justices who are fair to all sides in their interpretation of laws that effect North Carolina workers.  The following judges are very qualified and have been endorsed by many groups interested in preserving the rights of workers.

North Carolina Court of Appeals

You will have the option of voting for candidate for several seats on the court of appeals. These are our endorsements for those seats

Seat 1: John S. Arrowood

Seat 2: Tobias “(Toby)” Hampson  or Jefferson Griffin

Seat 3: Allegra Katherine Collins  

North Carolina Supreme Court

For the N.C. Supreme Court, we endorse Anita Earls

All judges are now required to run partisan races and will be identified on the ballot with their respective parties. The position of judicial candidates on the ballot is easy to overlook, because they are listed separately from the County, State and Federal races for which you will be voting. Make sure you cast a vote in these important races. I certainly hope you will consider supporting the candidates we have endorsed above.

N.C. General Assembly

We have also reviewed the platforms and records of candidates running for the N.C. General Assembly. At the end of this email, you’ll find our endorsements for candidates running for the N.C. Senate and the N.C. House of Representatives.

Those endorsements are listed at the end of this email, organized by district. If you’re not sure which district you live in, you can visit the N.C. General Assembly’s Who Represents Me page to find out.

Proposed Constitutional Amendments

Finally, I wanted to talk about one of the six proposed constitutional amendments that are on the ballot in North Carolina this year. After reviewing these amendments at length, I believe that the amendment, which allows the legislature to fill judicial vacancies, is wrong and should be opposed.

Thanks for giving me the opportunity to provide you with information about the upcoming General Election.  I believe that this list of judicial and legislative endorsements is a list of the candidates that will best represent the PEOPLE of North Carolina.  I recommend that you print out this endorsement list to take with you to the polls on Tuesday, Nov. 6. Feel free to make copies for your friends and family and encourage them to vote on Election Day, November 6, 2018.

Sincerely,

Daniel L. Deuterman
