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 download our Strategic Plan here.

In Memory of Janet Lyles

A devoted Carteret Democrat passed away on July 20, 2019. Janet Marie Lyles, born in Polk county and a graduate of UNC Chapel HIll as an undergraduate and Law school graduate, was an attorney at Davis, Murrelle,and Lyles, P.A. in Morehead city where she worked for 25 years. She devoted herself to helping clients who needed financial assistance to lead their lives with dignity. She was a member of the N.C. Advocates for Justice, and the Social Security and Disability Advocacy and Worker’s Compensation Sections, from which she received a lifetime achievement award. She also belonged to the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives and Workers Injury Law and Advocacy Group. Colleagues refer to her as a fountain of knowledge in these areas of the law. She once said, “I would drop anything if I knew I could help someone.” Janet was passionately interested in the political health of the country and our party, and often worked for the Carteret BOE during elections. In her honor, a gift of $500 has been made to the Headquarters Fund of the Carteret Democratic Party.
