On Tuesday July 29, 2014, from 6:30pm to 8pm, Democrats from Precincts 72, 74, and 133 will gather at the Lewisville Public Library to learn about “fracking” in North Carolina, the many reasons why the election in November is of critical importance for all citizens of our state, and how all of us can help our candidates succeed in the fall. Candidates, who have stepped forward to serve North Carolina, are warmly invited to join us for this event and to “mingle” with those in attendance. Refreshments will be provided.

Our first speaker is Mr. David Kelly, a Senior Analyst with the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF), who will talk with the audience about the technology and impact of “fracking” in North Carolina, a controversial issue for our state. To set the context for his discussion on July 29th, Mr. Kelly wrote:

“In numerous states current production practices are causing unacceptable impacts to our air and water. Drawing from the policy expertise and lessons learned from work in other states, the Environmental Defense Fund is making recommendations to the NC Mining and Energy Commission and advocating for the adoption of strong protective standards for communities, public health, and the environment.”

Because of his work and interactions with the Mining and Energy Commission on behalf of the EDF regarding natural gas extraction, Mr. Kelly is able to provide the audience a knowledgeable, non-partisan view of the technology, the policies and regulations adopted by our legislature, and the potential impact of “fracking” in North Carolina. And he says he expects plenty of questions about this controversial technology.

Following Mr. Kelly’s presentation Susan Campbell, Forsyth County Democratic Party Chair, will talk with the group about “Why This Election in November Matters”, the many issues at stake, and why our votes are important. She will discuss options for action that each of us can take that will help our party succeed in November, and begin reversing the damages done to our state by the current Republican-dominated legislature in Raleigh.  She also will talk about the opportunities for volunteering and answer questions anyone may have about getting involved in Forsyth Democratic Party activities.

Susan will invite those in attendance to divide into precinct groups, providing an opportunity to meet other members of their precinct and discuss how, together, they can begin taking action TO WIN in the fall.

We look forward to seeing all of our fellow precinct members and interested friends on July 29th for an informative, thought-provoking, and entertaining evening.

Our three precincts plan to follow this event with an opportunity in October for everyone in our precincts to meet and talk with the candidates in preparation for a successful Election in November.
