    Supreme Courts Block McCrory Appeal of 4th Circuit Ruling

    From the Wall Street Journal: A divided Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected an emergency appeal by North Carolina seeking to revive stricter state voting rules, which reduced the number of days for early voting and required photo identification at the polls. The high court, in a brief written order, declined to stay an appeals court ruling from July that struck down North Carolina’s Republican-backed voting rules. The appeals court found state lawmakers enacted the rules with the intent to discriminate against black voters. North Carolina’s bid to restore the rules for Election Day split the Supreme Court’s current eight justices along ideological lines, with four liberal justices rejecting the request and four conservative justices supporting the state. The even split meant a loss for the state’s appeal.

    2018 County Convention

Folks are energized and ready to work toRReivesCtyConv2017.png break the majority!  Come out on March 24th for fellowship and to find out the latest news on this election season.  We’ll have candidates on hand for you to meet and a great keynote speaker, Lisa Sorg of NC Policy Watch.

    This year we will elect 6th Congressional District delegates and State Convention delegates and vote on resolutions in between hearing from county and state officials and candidates. We are excited about the coming election and want you to be part of it.

    We will convene at Horton Middle School in Pittsboro.  Registration and our social hour start at 9 AM. The convention starts at 10 AM and should adjourn around 1 PM.

    Convention documents follow the keynote profile.

    Please RSVP if you plan to attend the convention.

    Lisa_Sorg.png2018 Keynote Lisa Sorg is an award-winning environmental investigative reporter with NC Policy Watch in Raleigh.  The North Carolina Press association awarded Sorg the 2017 Henry Lee Weathers Freedom of Information Award. Sorg, who has been recognized on multiple occasions throughout her career for journalism excellence and who is one of the nation’s preeminent environmental reporters, was recognized for her “efforts and exceptional work in advancing and upholding the cause of Freedom of Information.” In a fashion that is typical of her commitment to excellence in reporting, Sorg missed last night’s award ceremony in order to report on a public hearing regarding the planned expansion of the I-540 tollway in southern Wake County. You can read the story that she filed on that issue by clicking here

    A journalist for 24 years, Sorg has a keen interest not only in the environment, but also the social justice impacts of pollution and corporate malfeasance.  She also recently won two second-place honors from the NC Press Association for her reporting on GenX, as well as an attempt by a private company to chemically treat Jordan Lake, a drinking water source for 300,000 people without adequate public engagement.

    Before arriving at NC Policy Watch, she was editor of INDY Week in Durham for eight years and the San Antonio (Texas) Current for three.   In San Antonio, she covered the fight of a Latinx neighborhood over drinking water contamination originating at a nearby military base. 

    Sorg also worked at dailies and an alt-weekly in her home state of Indiana. There, she became interested in environmental reporting when she began covering PCB contamination in low-income neighborhoods in Bloomington, Indiana.  She lives in Durham, where in her off hours, she spends as much as time as possible outdoors.
