It’s May, and the weather is perfect… so instead of an indoor meeting this month, the Craven County Democratic Party will be having a picnic instead, at Glenburnie Park on the banks of the beautiful Neuse River!
Please plan on joining us… kids are welcome and encouraged! This is a great opportunity to invite any friends or family who want to learn about more ways to get involved in the Democratic Party and take back our county, state, and country.
We’ll provide hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, beans, and beverages (iced tea, lemonade, and water)… please bring a side dish or a dessert to share.
We’ll be starting at 5:00 and ending at 6:30 (the park closes at 7:00).
From Glenburnie Rd: Drive northeast toward the Neuse River. Turn right at Oaks Road, and turn left onto Glenburnie Drive. (This is the street where the National Guard Armory and WCTI-TV are located.) Drive to the end of the street and bear left into Glenburnie Park and follow the instructions below.
From Broad Street: Take George Street in the direction opposite Tryon Palace. Follow it over the railroad tracks where it becomes National Ave, and continue until the street name changes to Oaks Road. After one mile, Glenburnie Drive will be on your right… turn right and follow the instructions below.
Once you’re inside the park: Continue straight ahead and look for the JC shelter house on the right, overlooking the river, toward the rear of the park.
Monthly meeting for the Precinct N1 (George Street) Democrats. Join us!
Join us in the private room (right side of Famous Restaurant, beside the bakery) for the monthly meeting for fellowship, support, planning and suggestions to move Craven County forward by electing Democrats to public office.
Dutch treat dinner (i.e., everyone pays for their own) at 5:30PM. The meeting starts at 6:30PM.
America is in grave danger.
With Trump’s surprise victory in November 2016, the Republican Party controls the White House and both houses of Congress, giving them free rein to take away health care from millions of Americans, threaten civil rights, declare open season on the environment and the climate, and gut services that help all Americans.
But Trump has also awakened a tide of resistance among Americans, who are standing up against Trump and his cronies — raising their voices, marching, demanding answers from their elected officials, and committing to vote in 2018.
Join us as we fight for the basic American values Trump and his cronies are threatening: Opportunity and prosperity for everyone, clean air and water and a stable climate, great public schools for our kids, and an economy that works for all of us, not just the rich and well-connected.
Last night's county Democratic Party meeting was an astounding success! We swore in our new elected county party leadership, talked about our vision for the 2018 election, and talked about some great opportunities to get involved right now. Turnout was so great that we ran out of chairs... a great problem to have!
House Bill 780 is an unconstitutional attempt to roll back the progress we've made to ensure that everyone has the right to marry the person they love, regardless of their sexual orientation... so we're not surprised that Michael Speciale, a Republican state legislator with a long pattern of carrying water for narrow special interests against ordinary North Carolinians, is one of the people behind the effort. Read our full statement on HB780.
At our county Democratic Party convention on April 1, our delegates elected a new executive board to lead our party forward into the 2017 and 2018 elections.
