Fair Courts in North Carolina – Together We Are Winning the Fightby Gerrick Brenner - Executive Director, Progress NC Action January 18, 2018
Last week, the General Assembly came back to Raleigh with schemes to dismantle our independent courts. And in the face of hundreds of protesters from across the state, the politicians backed down, left town, and did nothing.
Together we are winning this fight for Fair Courts in North Carolina.
And while it’s snowing in most of our state, now is the time to turn up the heat – on our lawmakers! Last fall, the politicians took away one of our rights to vote for judges. Now it’s time to take it back.
Last October lawmakers in Raleigh CANCELLED the primary election of judges in 2018. This means that your 2018 ballot will be chaotic and will be nearly impossible for voters to make informed decisions when voting for judges. The cancellation of this election is just one step in the Republican plan to rig our courts in their favor.
