Our Carolina Promise

Welcome to Carteret County Democratic Party site. We are your neighbors and have the same concerns as you do: a quality education for our young people, affordable healthcare for everyone, jobs with a living wage, and keeping our coast healthy, beautiful, and free from drilling. We work to ensure that all our voices are heard locally as well as at the state and national level. As Democrats, we are traditionally the ‘big tent’ party that welcomes everyone regardless of who you are. All North Carolinians should have a fair shot at a good life, regardless of their background, where they came from, how much money they have, or who they love. This is something we believe in and need to continually reaffirm in practice. You can read our platform here and download our 2019 Strategic Plan here.

This is Us

Join us as a volunteer (on your own terms). We are a fun group. Click here to let us know your interests so we can get to know you better (even if you are already a volunteer it will help us ensure you are doing what you want to do).  Also, check out our new standing committees. Standing committees are self directed and report to the Executive Board. It is a chance to be creative and exercise your talents.

NC Policy Watch news changes daily so check out on a regular basis. It is a great source for keeping tabs on the GA. Daily Clips is a round up of NC political news from the NCDP that is disseminated M-F. Takeaways are typically disseminated from NCDP on Fridays summarizing the week’s news. We currently aren’t getting Daily Clips in the lull after the election. Other guidance and ‘immediate releases’ come from NCDP as events occur.

Environment Call To Action


  • Draft 5 year plan for leasing of our coastline for drilling will come down from the federal government through the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) any time now.
  • Our statewide plan is to have Pop-Up Rapid Response Rallies in 4-5 locations (Nagshead, Morehead City, Wilmington, Raleigh, and possibly Asheville) within 24-48 hours following the announcement. More details here: https://www.dontdrillnc.org/
    • In Morehead City our event will be at the Jaycees waterfront park near the Fisherman’s statue across from the Bask Hotel @ 5PM, 24 hours after the announcement is made. We will gather as many people as possible at the last minute through social media and email to attend this event which will draw in the print and tv media to catch the early national news cycle. This announcement will affect nearly the entire coastline of the USA and we will have only 90 days to make public comment to BOEM!
        • In addition to supplying information on how you can make your own comments, and pick up new yard signs, we have confirmed the following speakers to address the issues and they will be available to the media for public comment:
          • Jud Kenworthy (retired NOAA marine scientist) on his experience as a first responder to the BP oil spill
          • Rett Newton (Beaufort Mayor) on why the 7 municipalities in Carteret County have all signed Resolutions against Seismic and Drilling
          • Tom Kies (Carteret Chamber of Commerce Director and Chair of Business Alliance Protecting the Atlantic Coast) on why the current economy and businesses would be hurt by this both onshore and offshore.
          • Peter Flynn (A retired oil rig diver) who will speak to the damage drilling and spilling does to the ocean floor.
          • Pete Peterson or Chris Voss (UNC-IMS and whichever can be available) on the ecological effects of oil spills.
