2021 Fleet Reddish

FleetReddish2021.PNGThe Fleet Reddish dinner is an important fund raiser for CCDP.  It is always a wonderful event! Named in honor of former county party chair Fleet Reddish, the event has grown over the years and is always inspiring and fun as we gather to celebrate our shared values and goal of electing great Democrats to office.

Last year for the first time in 35 years we did not have Fleet Reddish.  You know why – Covid-19.

This year is different -we’ve learned how to adapt and hold many activities online.  Join us on April 11th from 5 to 7 pm for the Fleet Reddish 2021 virtual fundraiser.

Sponsorships help us build funding for our election work.  We need your support for 2022. Purchase your ticket or sponsorship online below or use this form

Individual Tickets are $35.


Event Sponsor - $1000
Roosevelt Patron - $500
Kennedy Patron - $250
Carter Patron - $125

Dine with us virtually.  Support a local restaurant by buying dinner and enjoy it while we meet for Fleet Reddish.  See the list at the end of this page or download the list.

Our theme is North Carolina after 2020: Moving Forward with Hope.  In the past decade and especially the past year, we have overcome so many challenges.  But there is still much to do.  How do we move forward to build back better and protect our democracy?    Following the keynote, Dr. Davis will lead a discussion with a Senator Jeff Jackson, Senator Valerie Foushee, Representative Robert Reives and Commissioner Jim Crawford.

Our keynote speaker is NC Senator Jeff Jackson.

SenJeffJackson.PNGSenator Jackson became the second-youngest senator in the state Senate in 2014. Senator Jackson has built a reputation for being transparent, accessible, and candid. Jeff has helped lead the fight against gerrymandering, stood against discriminatory legislation like HB2, supported investments in early childhood education, repeatedly called for raising teacher pay and expanding Medicaid, passed reforms for our criminal justice system.

Many of you will remember his #JustOneLegislator tweets during the snowstorm of February 2015. On the snow day Tuesday, he was basically the only legislator to show up to work.  Taking advantage of his majority rule, he said, “I thought I would fix the state,” He proceeded to “pass” a series of legislation. Here is a sample.


  • I just defeated a filibuster because I needed a drink of water. That removes any opposition to new childcare subsidies. Our jails are filled with the mentally ill and chemically addicted. Just expanded mental health care for them.

  • I'm hearing there's no cell phone reception in the press room. That goes on the list, but I'm putting it at the bottom.

  • Just had a big debate over cutting the university system even more. Decided not to, because obviously that's a bad idea.

  • BREAKING: Politicians don’t get to draw their own political districts anymore.  Let’s see how fair elections work.

  • In response to several inquiries, I can confirm that we are expanding broadband access throughout rural NC.


Senator Jackson is running for US Senate in 2022.   https://www.jeffjacksonnc.com/


Special Guest Dr. Anthony Davis is joining us.  Dr. Davis is Senior Vice President for Institutional Advancement/Chief Operating Officer of Livingston College.  Many of us remember his service to Chatham and the Chatham Democratic Party as Second Vice Chair for three terms.


Enjoy a virtual dinner event with us and support local restaurants.

Normally we gather and enjoy a meal but this year we can be together in spirit and support local restaurants.  On April 11th, please consider ordering take-out dinner from one of these local restaurants. A list of options will be available soon.
