Curmilus – you are by far the most effective political engager that I have met along the campaign trail. I may not agree with every position you take – but I have great respect for your candor, character and courage to take a stand. Thank you for giving me an opportunity to earn your support.
I am so grateful for this opportunity to serve the citizens of SD-003 Bertie, Chowan, Edgecombe, Hertford, Martin, Northampton, Tyrrell and Washington counties. To my friends who voted for me, and those who supported another candidate – I would be honored for you to join me in celebrating this historical occasion. I have purposed to serve ALL citizens – young, old, rich, poor, black, white, brown, democrat, republican, independent,unaffiliated, rural, urban, without regard to religious, ethnic and gender preferences. (lowercase letters intentional). Curmilus has set the bar – now that the election is over – let’s work together to eradicate poverty by bringing jobs, more infrastructure and strengthening education in eastern North Carolina.
It took Kujichagulia (Self-Determination) to get me here; Dancy’s post invites our Umoja (Unity); and now I call on each of us to embrace 2 more Nguzu Saba principles as we strive to build a stronger community: Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility) and Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics).
I pray everyone had a Merry Christmas – I wish you Happy Holidays, Happy Kwanzaa and Happy New Year and I hope to see you in Bertie on January 3, 2015.
