Open Letter To Mayor Bobbie Jones And Princeville Town Commissioners 

​You met last Thursday and the folk know the 3 options. 

There do not need to be a meeting of the wards, 1 meeting with everyone in the same room is sufficient. 

There need to be a meeting this Thursday for folk in Princeville to sign up for what they want to do. Since the county can’t override Princeville, then they are irrelevant. 

PRINCEVILLE TOWN COMMISSIONERS need to call a meeting and 1st 30 minutes be for questions about 3 options, then they write on the card the option they want or if they don’t want to choose either then so be it.

The Commissioners then need to group the options chosen and then vote on how to move forward.

Princeville Commissioners need to vote on what they are going to do so that the folk in Princeville can focus on what they need to do.

News & Observer: Federal court orders new NC legislative elections in 2017

Raleigh, N.C. — North Carolina lawmakers must redraw their legislative districts by March 15 and hold new elections by the end of next year, a federal court ruled Tuesday.

That order follows up on a ruling from this summer that found lawmakers had unconstitutionally relied on race when they drew 28 state House and Senate districts.

Although lawmakers had told the court they should be given more time to redraw their districts and should not have to hold elections until 2018, the three-judge panel disagreed.

“This gives the State a total of seven months from the time the districts were held to be unconstitutional, which is longer than it took the 2011 legislature to redistrict the entire state,” read the order, which was drafted by a three-judge federal district court panel. (Read more)

WRAL: McCrory blocks state board’s effort to hire outside lawyers in election dispute

Raleigh, N.C. — Gov. Pat McCrory’s office has turned down the State Board of Elections’ request to hire lawyers from the Brooks Pierce law firm to defend the state against a federal lawsuit by the Civitas Institute.

McCrory, a Republican, appears to have narrowly lost his re-election bid to Democratic Attorney General Roy Cooper. Normally, Cooper’s office would defend the state in such cases. However, given the interest by both McCrory and Cooper, the state board decided Sunday to seek outside help.

While Thomas Ziko, a long-time litigator in independent practice, did get approved, a trio of lawyers who work for Brooks Pierce – Charles Marshall, Craig Schauer and Jessica Thaller-Moran – was rejected. Marshall, Schauer and Thaller-Moran, have all either worked for Republican judges before coming to the firm or worked on behalf of GOP causes. (Read more)

Breaking News: Federal court orders NC law makers to redraw districts, hold new General Assembly elections in 2017 – WRAL

In a unanimous ruling Tuesday, a three-judge panel ordered the General Assembly to redraw 28 North Carolina state house and senate districts by March 15, 2017, and to hold a special primary and general election in the fall of 2017.

Additional information will be posted here as it becomes available.

News & Observer – NC GOP: ‘No apologies’ for voters mistakenly accused of fraud

Gov. Pat McCrory’s re-election campaign remained silent Monday on reports showing that election complaints included false accusations of voter fraud, but the N.C. Republican Party defended the complaints.

A number of the 43 voters accused of being ineligible felons turned out to be cases of mistaken identity. Several other voters accused were serving a misdemeanor sentence, which does not affect voting rights. Republican-led county elections board have dismissed the most of the inaccurate complaints.

The nonprofit Democracy North Carolina, which has urged McCrory to halt the protests, analyzed criminal records and found that 18 of the 43 – nearly half – were wrongfully accused of being felons ineligible to vote.  (Read more)
