Lately Valerie C. Woodard has been on my mind. I remember so clearly when she and I were a member of the elections supervisory committee for the NC NAACP State Conference of Branches in Greensboro NC when we had to fight to make sure the election process for the electing of the NAACP NC State Conference of Branches officers were carried out properly and fairly. We had a struggle but we got our way.
Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II was elected as the Naacp NC State Conference of Branches President.
Valerie was also in her third term as Mecklenburg County Commissioner at the time of her departure.
Rest in peace my friend.
