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.

Women’s History Month -March Reception –Thursday, March 14th

6:00-7:30 pm Promise Land Market –Morehead City

March is Women’s History Month, when we take the time to look back and honor the many achievements of

women through history and the vast strides made by women today. This year, The League of Women Voters will

celebrate Women’s History Month by honoring our women here in Carteret County who have been elected to

office both past and present.

Come celebrate with us as we host a reception and SILENT AUCTION on Thursday March 14. The informal

reception will run from 6-7:30 at Promise Land Market 909 Arendell St. in Morehead City. Appetizers will be

provided by the LWVCC with cash bar available. http://www.promiselandmarket.com/

The reception will highlight women in Carteret County who have served in office and made significant

contributions to our community. The League will also announce the availability of our 2019 “Woman of the Year”

award nominations. Since 2000, the LWVCC has sponsored the Carteret County “Woman of the Year” award. This

award spotlights the diverse and invaluable contributions of women in the community. The winner is announced at

our annual Women’s Equality Day luncheon in August.

Come socialize with the League members and celebrate Women’s History Month. Discover some history; meet

women and men who shape our county, and hear the stories of past Women of the Year in a casual setting.

Redistricting Call To Action

February 13, at the N.C. General Assembly; Representatives Robert Reives (D – Chatham), Chuck McGrady (R – Henderson), Brian Turner (D – Buncombe) and Jon Hardister (R – Guilford) filed House Bill 69 “Nonpartisan Redistricting Commission” to create an independent redistricting commission to address gerrymandering. 

Call to Action

Calls and emails to your legislators are needed! Please reach out to your House Representative to ask them to co-sponsor this bill. House members have 72 hours from bill-filing to sign on as a co-sponsor.

Also please thank the primary sponsors of the bill, listed above, for their leadership.

HB 69 would set up a an eleven-member independent commission of four Republicans, four Democrats and three members of other political parties to make voting maps with staff assistance. There would be hearings and comment opportunities to engage the public. The maps would be required to be compact, contiguous and in compliance with state and federal laws. The districts drawn by the commission would then be voted on by the General Assembly and take effect in the next redistricting cycle in 2021.
