    Mike Dasher

    by Mickayla McCann

    mikedasher.PNGMike Dasher is seeking re-election to the Chatham County Board of Commissioners, facing off against his Republican opponent, Jimmy Pharr.

    Dasher has lived in Chatham for the past 16 years. Originally from Ohio, Dasher moved to North Carolina at the age of 12. He attended Barton College, graduating with degrees in political science and finance. After college, Dasher joined AmeriCorps and managed construction for affordable housing through Habitat for Humanity. Dasher went on to work for several affordable housing development organizations and now owns and operates Orange Communities LLC, a property development company dedicated to building sustainable spaces and homes. He currently lives in Pittsboro with his wife and two children.

    Dasher was first elected to the Chatham Board of Commissioners in 2016 and served as chair of the board in 2019. He represents District 2, the southeastern and most populous district of Chatham. During his tenure, Dasher supported removing the Confederate monument on display in front of the Chatham County Historic Courthouse. He also helped to pass a one-quarter cent sales tax increase, which generates necessary revenue for the county’s affordable housing, parks, and schools.

    Dasher stated that he is running for re-election in order to continue making progress for Chatham. If re-elected, he plans to maintain his original agenda—prioritizing schools and affordable housing. Dasher understands that Chatham will face many challenges as it grows, and he aims to expand on the Chatham County Comprehensive Plan by developing a Unified Development Ordinance, which will designate rules regarding how to expand the county sustainably and ethically while preserving its rural character. Dasher also intends to fight for expanded broadband internet access across Chatham.

    Profile: Rep. Robert Reives II

    --Mickayla McCann

    RReivestigh.PNGNorth Carolina House Representative Robert Reives II is running for re-election this November to continue his pledge to give back to his state and its citizens.

    Born and raised in Sanford, NC, Reives has dedicated his life to bettering his community. After graduating from the University of North Carolina School of Law, Reives returned home to Lee County to serve as an assistant district attorney. There he was exposed to the realities of the criminal justice system and quickly realized the importance of crafting and applying fair legislation to protect marginalized populations. He became a partner at Wilson, Reives, and Silverman, where he has worked for over two decades. Throughout his law career, Reives has consistently prioritized community involvement, whether by sponsoring education scholarships, hosting community events, or actively participating in his church.

    Following the resignation of Deb McManus in 2013, Reives was encouraged by the Chatham County Democratic Party to take her seat as the representative of House District 54, which encompasses Chatham County and portions of Lee and Durham Counties. In 2014, following an outpouring of community support, Reives successfully won his seat in the NC House and has since served three terms.

    Over the course of his political career, Reives has emphasized the importance of improving public education, advocating for the environment, and protecting the rights of his constituents. Reives has demonstrated his values through action – both in enacting progressive policies and blocking destructive legislation.

    “As for successes, we’ve been able to halt a lot of the bad policies that we’ve seen over the last eight years,” Reives said in a virtual town hall meeting hosted by the Chatham County Democratic Party. “We’ve been able to prevent an expansion with charter schools at the expense of our public education system. We’ve also beat back what could have been some pretty harmful environmental bills that otherwise would have passed. We’ve been able to play really good defense.”

    reiveswithconst.PNGReives has proposed numerous influential policies, notably legislation to ensure access to clean water, minimize environmental damage from fracking, and incentivize clean energy. With regard to education, he has worked to increase teacher pay, reduce class size, and devote more resources to early education. Reives has also sponsored legislation establishing a domestic worker’s bill of rights, assuring fair redistricting, protecting voting access, and adopting the NC Equal Rights Amendment.

    Since entering office, Reives has served in a multitude of leadership positions. In his first term, he was picked to be the Freshman Caucus Co-Chair and the Sergeant at Arms of the NC Legislative Black Caucus. He currently serves as the Deputy Democratic Leader of the House, Vice Chair of the Education-Community Colleges Committee, and the Vice-Chair of the Judiciary III Committee.

    In seeking a fourth term, Reives aims to continue his quest to help North Carolina flourish. He states that his top priorities upon re-election will be passing independent redistricting, expanding Medicaid, and continuing to invest in education, despite decreases in revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    “We’ve looked at forecasts that put us at more than 4 billion dollars down, as far as expected revenue,” Reives said. “We have to figure out how to get a good, robust investment in education. Our public education system is the only thing that’s going to get us out of this, and we’ve got to invest in it, and we’ve got to figure out ways to make it better.”

    With much uncertainty surrounding the logistics of the upcoming election, Reives urges his constituents to request an absentee ballot as soon as possible and to vote, in spite of the many forces attempting to undermine that right. As an experienced representative, a trusted leader, and a man who has a demonstrated record of putting the needs of the state first, Reives believes that, with your help, he can lead North Carolina to greatness.

    “The most important attribute in an elected official is that they desire to work for the things the district cares about, and our district has said time and time again that we, and this state, need good healthcare, great public education, to be stewards of the environment, and to invest in responsible economic development,” Reives said. “I will continue to fight for those things every day.”

    Profile: Sen. Valerie Foushee

    Mickayla McCann

    SenFoushee.PNGNorth Carolina Senator Valerie Foushee is running for re-election this November to continue fighting for equality and justice for all.

    Foushee began her tenure in the General Assembly after observing statewide cuts to education funding, a lack of transparency in government, and an uptick in women’s rights violations. Compelled to take action, she joined the NC House in 2012, where she began to generate change by passing local legislation. A year later, following the retirement of Sen. Ellie Kinnaird, Foushee began her career in the NC Senate representing District 23, which includes Orange and Chatham Counties.

    Since being elected to office, Foushee has focused her platform on expanding Medicaid, increasing governmental accountability, promoting economic recovery and development, and restoring funding to all levels of education. She believes that North Carolina must invest in education, as quality education increases opportunity for all by expanding access to jobs and attracting new businesses. She also thinks that by increasing transparency government becomes accessible to its citizens, so that together, elected officials and their constituents make more informed decisions.

    Foushee has sponsored legislation to increase funding for public education, increase teacher pay, and enable income-eligible children to participate in the NC Pre-K program. She has also sponsored bills to repeal HB2 in its entirety, amend NC labor laws to end wage theft, end the gender pay gap in NC, increase the scope and punishment of hate crimes, and provide education for prisoners in order to reduce recidivism. Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, Foushee has supported legislation to mandate hazard pay for state employees fighting COVID-19 on the frontlines; allocate funds to support farmers, restaurants, hotels, and small businesses; and provide economic relief for North Carolinians. In 2019 Foushee was named Legislator of the Year by the NC Teacher Association of Teacher Assistants and Senator of the Year by the NC League of Conservation Voters.

    A lifelong Orange County resident, Foushee attended Chapel Hill High School before graduating from UNC-Chapel Hill with a degree in political science and African and Afro-American studies. She then devoted 21 years to serving in the Chapel Hill Police Department, where she supervised two units. After retiring, she turned her focus toward politics and was elected to the Board of Education for Chapel Hill-Carrboro Schools for three terms, serving as Chair from 2001 to 2003. She then became the first African-American female elected to the Orange County Board of Commissioners in 2004, where she served two terms and became Chair from 2008 to 2010.

    SenFousheewithkids.PNGFoushee has held many leadership positions within her community, ranging from serving as a member of the Board of Directors for the Boys and Girls Club of the Eastern Piedmont, to the Board of Trustees for Durham Technical Community College. She has a demonstrated passion for minority representation in government, as the former president of the NC Association of Black County Officials, a member of the Chapel Hill-Carrboro branch of the NAACP, and the current chair of the NC Black Alliance. She is also an active member of First Baptist Church of Chapel Hill.

    Foushee believes that there is much more that she can accomplish for District 23. In seeking re-election, she aims to continue ensuring equality, strengthening the economy, protecting the environment, and investing in quality education. She recognizes that North Carolina, along with the rest of the country, is experiencing new difficulties on all fronts—from unprecedented economic challenges as COVID-19 continues to ravage the state, to continual police brutality and demands for government reform. In the face of adversity, Foushee pledges to fight to protect and provide for her constituents and work to build a brighter future for all.

  • published Cal Cunningham in Candidate Profiles 2020-10-23 16:24:40 -0400

    Cal Cunningham

    by Mickayla McCann

    In one of the most competitive U.S. Senate races of the year, Cal Cunningham is seeking to unseat incumbent Thom Tillis and bring integrity back to Capitol Hill.

    calheadshot.PNG“While we may not always agree on the issues, I will always listen and work to bring North Carolina stories to Washington and put North Carolina first in the debates before our country -- from expanding health care and bringing down prescription drug costs, to raising wages and putting folks back to work following this crisis,” Cunningham said. “My opponent, Thom Tillis has spent the past six years looking out for special interests in Washington instead of the people he represents.”

    A North Carolinian through-and-through, Cunningham was born in Winston-Salem and raised in Lexington. He grew up volunteering on service projects in the Appalachian Mountains with his church, working at the family brickyard, and gathering inspiration from his father, a compassionate small-town attorney. Cunningham went on to earn his undergraduate and law degrees from UNC-Chapel Hill, as well a Master’s in Public Policy and Public Administration from the London School of Economics.

    At age 27, Cunningham became one of the youngest state senators in NC, representing Davidson, Rowan, and Iredell Counties. While in office, Cunningham fought for higher teacher pay, smaller class sizes, and the creation of what is now known as NC Pre-K. Reflecting on his term as state senator, Cunningham stated that some of his biggest achievements were helping to pass the landmark Clean Smokestack Act of 2002, as well as legislation establishing public financing and voter guides for judicial elections.

    “During my time in the North Carolina legislature, I learned that elective office can be a meaningful way to serve our communities, though I’m most deeply guided by the values I’ve learned from the North Carolinians I grew up with and served with,” Cunningham said.

    After 9/11 Cunningham volunteered to join the U.S. Army Reserve. He served three active-duty tours and now holds the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. Cunningham stated that he aims to use the lessons he learned in the military to lead the state through the COVID-19 pandemic.

    “In the Army Reserve, I learned that in a crisis, our leaders must identify critical objectives, plan a response, marshal the resources and communicate that plan clearly,” Cunningham said. “The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic demands that same leadership and good judgment, not only as communities and frontline workers deal with the day-to-day realities of this pandemic, but also as communities everywhere look for guidance to reopen.”

    Cal-serve.PNGAside from his career in the military, Cunningham has worked at several law firms, including Wallace & Graham, Kilpatrick Stockton, and the Law Offices of J. Calvin Cunningham. He also served as the vice president and general counsel of WasteZero, a waste reduction company in Raleigh, from 2013 to March 2020.

    Despite his busy professional life, Cunningham felt compelled to run for office after feeling disappointed by the way North Carolina was represented in the U.S. Senate.

    “When I took an oath to support and defend our country against all enemies, foreign and domestic, I never imagined the biggest threat to our country would be corruption and chaos in Washington,” Cunningham said. “I’m running to fulfill that oath, and because I’ve got to be able to look my kids in the eye and say I did everything I could to leave our country better off for their generation.”

    Cunningham has ambitious goals for North Carolina. As a U.S. Senator, he plans to offer low-cost, accessible healthcare by extending coverage under the Affordable Care Act and expanding Medicaid. He also aims to attack income and wealth inequality by raising the minimum wage, decreasing the cost of healthcare and education, and investing in communities of color and minority-owned businesses. Further, Cunningham intends to combat climate change by investing in clean energy, reducing carbon pollution, and protecting North Carolina’s natural resources.

    “I’ve always run toward the fight, and now I am asking North Carolinians to put me into this fight again,” Cunningham said.

    Scott Huffman

    by Mickayla McCann

    Scott Huffman is running for election to the U.S. House of Representatives to bring honest politics back to North Carolina’s 13th Congressional District.

    scott_huffman.PNG“I’m not running to be a politician -- I’m running to be the public servant that we desperately need in Washington representing us,” Huffman said. “We currently don’t have that. I want to represent the interests of the poor and working-class in our district.”

    Huffman grew up in Spencer, NC, where he experienced the realities of growing up under financial strain. As a single parent raising three children, Huffman’s mother worked as a waitress to keep her family afloat. Continuing his mother’s legacy of hard work and dedication, Huffman joined the U.S. Navy out of high school and served two tours of duty. After leaving the Navy, Huffman became fascinated with computers and taught himself everything there was to know about information technology. In 1995 he opened his own business, Charlotte Internet, with the intent to supply internet to the masses. Since then, his company has evolved to focus on enterprise management and cyber security.

    Though Huffman has campaign experience, having volunteered for such big-name candidates as President Obama, Senator Bernie Sanders, and former Senator Kay Hagan, he did not consider running for office until after the 2016 election. His daughter, having watched Hillary Clinton narrowly lose to President Donald Trump, was scared about the future of women.

    “When my daughter was 10 years old, she expressed concern about what was going to happen to the girls in her school,” Huffman said. “She wanted to know if a boy were to grab them in school, would they get away with it? I said, ‘Honey, I’ll make sure it’ll be okay. We’re going to get through this.’ Her concern for her friends really moved me.”

    Launching into action, Huffman became an officer in his local democratic party. He also started an Indivisible group in Charlotte, protesting attempts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, as well as Tom Tillis’ refusal to hold town halls. Disturbed by the lack of genuine representation for his district in Congress, Huffman decided to run for office himself.

    “It’s not what you can do for your government; it’s what your government can do for you,” Huffman said. “And the way we do that is to elect leaders who maintain a relationship with voters.”

    scotthuffmanwfamily.PNGIf elected, Huffman plans to focus on investing in public education, creating more jobs, expanding Medicaid, and protecting civil rights. As a product of the public school system himself, Huffman knows that education is vital for success. He believes that all children deserve a quality education, no matter where they live. Along with supporting the next generation of workers, Huffman plans to promote economic growth by attracting high-paying jobs to District 13. He also seeks to decrease financial stress brought on by the crushing costs of healthcare.

    Huffman believes that healthcare is a human right and that medical bills should not bankrupt families. In regards to civil rights, he supports reforming the criminal justice system, restoring the Voting Rights Act, and supporting the Equality Act, the Disability Integration Act, and the Equal Rights Amendment.

    “I’m trying to support hope and connectivity, rather than fear-mongering,” Huffman said. “We are all a village. We’ve got to get back to being that leader that the rest of the world looks to.”

    Huffman also states that he plans to develop an app that will allow his constituents to keep in touch with him. This free app would enable citizens from all parties to see Huffman’s schedule and offer them the chance to submit questions and feedback on issues.

    “I am one of you,” Huffman said. “I’m a working-class candidate, I’m a small business owner, I’m a navy veteran, and I want the chance to serve my country again.”

    Karen Howard

    by Mickayla McCann

    karen_Howard.PNGKaren Howard is running for re-election to the Chatham County Board of Commissioners to continue her fight for a better Chatham for all.

    “I am hardworking, interested in the issues that matter to my constituents, and concerned about the future of Chatham County,” Howard said. “This is my home – this is where I raised my children. I can be counted on to hear what people are saying, to listen to views that are different than mine, and to do what is in the best interest of all of us.”

    Though born in New York, Howard spent much of her childhood in the Bahamas, where her father served as a member of the Bahamian Parliament. Howard attended Georgetown University, where she obtained a Bachelor of Arts in English before going on to law school at the University of Buckingham in England. Howard later practiced corporate litigation in New Jersey for over a decade before settling with her family in Northeast Chatham in 2006.

    As a mother of six, Howard first stepped into the political arena after feeling displeased with the way her children’s schools were being funded. She became a member of the Chatham County Board of Education in 2012 and later chaired the board from 2013 to 2014.

    “I felt like we were doing good things at the school board level, and I had kids in Chatham County schools, so it felt relevant and important to me,” Howard said. “But I also knew there were things that could be done at the county commission level that could really make a difference in Chatham County schools. I was particularly interested in certain populations that weren’t always well represented in the academic or educational sphere when it came to the kinds of issues that were coming before the board of commissioners. I thought I could have a more positive impact being on the board of commissioners.”

    Howard was elected to the Chatham Board of Commissioners in 2014, and currently serves as the chair. She states that her favorite achievement from her tenure in office was completing the Chatham County Comprehensive Plan. This land-use plan is a living document that will help guide the next 25 years of development within the county, taking into account environmental preservation, equity, community protection, and responsible growth.

    Karen_and_sons.PNG“It’s become the backbone for the way the county goes about doing its work,” Howard said. “It’s a non-partisan guiding tool to help departments and organizations, and even nonprofits, participate collaboratively to have their goals and their missions aligned in a way that benefits the county as a whole.”

    If re-elected, Howard plans to continue to prioritize county growth that preserves the true character of Chatham. She also seeks to address the economic disparities between the eastern and western portions of Chatham, as well as the racial inequality that has produced disparate outcomes in health, education, and justice for people of color in the county.

    “I think my voters need to know about my values,” Howard said. “I treat being a commissioner like a fulltime job. I will always put the interests of people above money. I will always put the education of our kids as a priority. I hold the same level of concern about the environment, economic disparity, and race and prejudice as I did when I first ran. I enjoy being a commissioner; I enjoy the work, the challenge, participating in discussion, and helping guide the county in what I think have been good decisions that benefit all of us.”

    David Price

    by Mickayla McCann

    David Price is running for re-election to the U.S. House of Representatives to continue serving North Carolina’s 4th Congressional District. 

    price-headshot.PNGPrice has lived in North Carolina for 47 years, 30 of which he has spent in Congress. Price grew up in eastern Tennessee and attended Mars Hill College, then transferred to UNC-Chapel Hill as a Morehead Scholar. While working toward earning degrees in history and mathematics, Price discovered a passion for justice by becoming involved in the South’s budding civil rights movement. Motivated to advocate for change, Price worked with the student legislature to integrate Chapel Hill’s businesses.

    Furthering his education and pursuing his interest in politics, Price attended Yale University, obtaining a Bachelor of Divinity degree and a Ph. D. in political science. While earning his doctorate, he worked as a legislative aide to former senator Edward Lewis Bartlett of Alaska. Upon graduating, Price took a position teaching political science and public policy at Duke University. He also worked at the North Carolina Democratic Party.

    After studying politics, teaching it, and learning its applications on state and federal levels, Price successfully ran for election and entered Congress in 1987. Seven years later, he lost his bid for reelection by a margin of less than one percent, only to win his seat back in the 1996 election. From 1997 onward, Price has proudly served North Carolina’s 4th Congressional District, which currently encompasses all of Orange, Durham, Granville, and Franklin counties, northern Wake County, and parts of Vance and Chatham counties. 

    Over the course of his tenure, Price has maintained a progressive platform. He states that one of his favorite accomplishments has been passing the Price Education Affordability Act, which gives students and their parents a tax break on school loans. He also looks proudly upon his service as the Chairman of the Transportation and Housing Appropriations Subcommittee, where he has fought to allocate more resources toward the Triangle’s infrastructure and affordable housing. In addition, Price has consistently pushed legislation to protect the environment, end predatory lending, and make campaigns and elections more ethical. In regards to politics abroad, Price initiated the House Democracy Partnership, a bipartisan commission that works directly with leaders of emerging democracies to develop effective legislative institutions worldwide.

    price-womensmarch.PNGPrice has pledged to keep fighting for the issues that matter to North Carolinians. If re-elected, he will work to continue improving North Carolina’s public education and infrastructure. He also aims to focus his next term on expanding affordable housing, increasing access to healthcare, promoting clean energy, and combating gun violence.

    Our goal is $30,000 between now and November 3, 2020.

    This is the most important election of the decade. The future of our state and nation depends on a Democratic wave.  Our fight to overcome voter suppression and misinformation is more challenging than ever.  And we must adapt to campaigning during a global pandemic.

    CCDP leadership has refocused on the strategies we can use to Get Out the Vote when we cannot gather in person or canvass.  These include expanded calling, texting, mailing, and social media plus a new peer-to-peer effort called Activate Your Networks. We are going to put the Blue Ballot and information about candidates and voting in 30,000 Chatham households.

    In addition to winning county races, CCDP is focused on increasing our voter turnout by 3% or more.  By increasing our turnout in support of the Blue Ballot we increase the vote in all state-wide races.  Those races include the Council of State, the Governor, U.S. Senate, the NC Supreme Court, the NC Court of Appeals and, critically, the President and Vice President.  North Carolina is one of the six swing states that can give Joe Biden the votes he needs in the Electoral College.

    Vote Fair Judges

     

    Win the Courts, win the war.

    courts.PNGJudicial races may be at the end of the ballot, but they are as important as the races at the top. Recent court rulings are illustrative: the decision overturning the Judicial Retention Election Law, the Fourth Circuit decision overturning the voter ID law, and the decisions on gerrymandering enacted by our current state legislature. Or the refusal by Congress to consider President Obama’s nominee for the Supreme Court.

    Justices like to say that party labels don’t matter when they are deciding cases, and in many instances that’s true. Most opinions handed down by the court are unanimous. But in matters steeped in partisan or philosophical ideology, justices align with their like-minded colleagues, and opinions issued in recent years reflect that divide. In decisions that split along party lines, conservative justices have upheld redistricting maps, turned North Carolina’s consumer protection law on its head, weakened Fourth Amendment search and seizure protections, and sustained the private-school voucher program.

    If party labels don't matter why did things change in 2013?

    On August 12, 2013, North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) signed a bill that created a voter ID requirement, cut early voting, eliminated the state's innovative and popular public financing program for judicial candidates, and raised the judicial campaign contribution limit. The public financing program was popular with voters, and the vast majority of candidates participated.

    As a result, that year for the first time in a decade North Carolina Supreme Court candidates were able to raise campaign cash—much of it from attorneys and corporations with a financial interest in the court's rulings. The May 5, 2013 primary election saw an unprecedented $1.3 million in spending for the only contested seat.

    Nearly half of this money came from the Republican State Leadership Committee, or RSLC, a group in Washington, D.C., that helps elect Republican legislators across the United States. One of the biggest donors to the RSLC in North Carolina is Duke Energy, the country’s largest electric utility. Duke Energy’s power plants produced $24 billion in revenue in 2013. One wonders why they put so much money into Judicial races.

    This election when you vote by mail, early or on November 3rd, remember to vote the complete ballot and send fair and impartial judges back to serve the people of North Carolina.

    We ignore the judicial races at our peril. Vote for these experienced, fair judicial candidates.

    Franklin_Gomez_Flores_1.jpgFranklin Gomez Flores, un residente de Siler City, es candidato a la Junta de Comisionados del Condado de Chatham representando al Distrito 5.

    El Partido Demócrata de Chatham logró con éxito recoger las firmas necesarias para que Franklin apareciera en la boleta electoral en noviembre.

    Franklin Gómez Flores es un demócrata, pero no pudo postularse en las campañas primarias debido a una ley aprobada el año pasado.

  • published El Gobierno de Carolina del Norte in En Español 2020-09-03 15:37:17 -0400

    El Gobiern de Carolina del Norte

    NCFlag.PNGEl gobierno del estado de Carolina del Norte se divide en tres ramas: ejecutiva, legislativa y judicial. Estos consisten en el Consejo de Estado (liderado por el Gobernador), la legislatura bicameral (llamada Asamblea General) y el sistema de tribunales estatales (encabezado por la Corte Suprema de Carolina del Norte).

    La Asamblea General escribe y legisla las leyes estatales de Carolina del Norte, también conocidas como Estatutos Generales. La Asamblea General es una legislatura bicameral, formada por la Cámara de Representantes de Carolina del Norte (anteriormente la Cámara de los Comunes de Carolina del Norte hasta 1868) y el Senado de Carolina del Norte. La Cámara tiene 120 miembros, mientras que el Senado tiene 50.

    El gobierno del condado de Carolina del Norte es el nivel de gobierno que más impacta directamente a cada ciudadano. Los gobiernos de los condados brindan acceso a los servicios necesarios, como atención a la salud pública y mental, escuelas, bibliotecas y apoyo a las personas mayores y los niños con necesidades. Los condados establecen importantes leyes (ordenanzas) locales y hacen cumplir las leyes que protegen a los ciudadanos de comportamientos peligrosos.

    Los condados están gobernados por una junta electa de comisionados del condado que varían en tamaño de tres a nueve comisionados. En la mayoría de los condados, los comisionados sirven por períodos de cuatro años.

    La Junta de Comisionados

    • establece la tasa de impuestos a la propiedad del condado y adopta un presupuesto equilibrado cada año antes del 30 de junio
    • establece las políticas del condado mediante la adopción de resoluciones y ordenanzas. Todos los condados utilizan la forma de gobierno de concejo-administrador.
    • es la única junta local con poder para establecer impuestos

    Los gobiernos del condado

    • administran los servicios sociales y la salud pública directamente dentro de los departamentos del condado utilizando empleados del condado. El sistema de servicios humanos de Carolina del Norte es administrado por el condado y supervisado por el estado.
    • están obligados por ley a construir y mantener las instalaciones escolares, aunque los edificios son propiedad de la junta escolar elegida de manera independiente.
    • contribuyen alrededor del 28 por ciento en promedio de sus presupuestos para financiar los gastos de las escuelas.
    • funcionan como gobiernos municipales para brindar y regular servicios para la salud y el bienestar de sus residentes.

    Otras partes del gobierno del Condado

    El Sheriff y el Registrador de escrituras son funcionarios electos con autoridad independiente para establecer políticas específicas para sus departamentos. Otras juntas locales independientes o casi independientes tienen la responsabilidad del control de las bebidas alcohólicas, las elecciones, la salud mental, la salud pública y los servicios sociales. Estas juntas nombran directores y tienen la autoridad para crear políticas locales.

    Las Juntas Escolares son elegidas por separado por los ciudadanos y son responsables de las políticas educativas y de establecer el presupuesto del sistema escolar.

    Los municipios de Carolina del Norte - ciudades, pueblos y poblados - operan bajo estatutos otorgados por la Asamblea General. En Carolina del Norte, los municipios no tienen autonomía, lo que significa que la legislatura estatal debe otorgar poderes y autoridad a los municipios y darles permiso legal realizar determinadas funciones.

    Los municipios se establecen para proteger a los ciudadanos y proporcionar a los residentes de un área en particular servicios urbanos: agua, alcantarillado, policía, calles, transporte, recreación, recolección y reciclaje de basura, planificación del uso del suelo y protección contra incendios. Los municipios se rigen por una junta electa. Los alcaldes de Carolina del Norte no tienen poder de veto sobre las acciones del consejo (con la excepción de una ciudad donde el alcalde tiene un poder de veto limitado). El alcalde puede votar o no sobre los asuntos que tiene ante sí el consejo, dependiendo de los estatutos.

    Una de las principales responsabilidades de toda junta de gobierno municipal es adoptar el presupuesto municipal anual, que determina qué servicios se brindarán y a qué nivel. Por ley, todos los presupuestos de Carolina del Norte deben estar balanceados y hay una agencia estatal que supervisa las finanzas municipales. Las principales fuentes de ingresos municipales son el impuesto al valor de la propiedad y los impuestos a las ventas (opción local). Las tarifas de usuario por servicios, como agua y alcantarillado, pagan los costos de infraestructura, operación y mantenimiento de los propios sistemas.

    El Tribunal de Distrito es un tribunal de primera instancia con 41 distritos. En cada distrito se llevan a cabo elecciones de uno o más jueces por períodos de cuatro años. Los Tribunales de Primera Instancia, o Tribunales de Distrito, se pueden dividir en cuatro categorías: civil, penal, juvenil y magistrado. El Tribunal de Distrito es el encargado de casos civiles como divorcio, custodia, manutención de menores y casos que involucran menos de $ 25,000, así como casos penales que involucran delitos menores e infracciones. El juicio de un caso penal en el Tribunal de Distrito siempre se realiza sin jurado. El Tribunal de Distrito también se encarga de casos de jóvenes  menores de 16 años que faltan a la escuela y niños menores de 18 años que son indisciplinados, dependientes, abandonados o abusados. Los magistrados aceptan declaraciones de culpabilidad por delitos menores y por infracciones de tránsito, y aceptan exenciones de juicio para casos de cheques sin valor, entre otras cosas.
