Be sure to vote on 11/7/17 in most municipalities! Local elections is where people have the most say. And many elections in NC have hinged on a single vote. See “Your vote matters: 31 NC elections decided by 1 vote, 69 elections by 5 or fewer,” News and Observer, 10/24/17.
The weekly Tuesdays With Tillis protest is 11:30am-12:30pm at 310 New Bern Ave, in Raleigh. The theme is Defeat the #TrumpTaxCuts. Tuesdays With Tillis at 11:30am at the Federal Building on New Bern in Raleigh. We have a great new sign! I love this protest, also because it is done in an hour. This is the 42nd week.
