New Blood, New Voices
We elected an 18 year old precinct chair, Matt Hughes! A senior at Cedar Ridge High School, Matt is Student Body president and will be attending UNC-CH in the fall. Only minutes after getting elected chair, Matt was already introducing resolutions on issues he cared about: voting rights for residents of US territories, the job responsibilities of the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, and the county's property revaluations. He did a stellar job explaining the issues and defending his position.
It's heartwarming to see a fresh face and new voice entering Democratic Party politics. Every political organization needs new energy to bubble up from the grassroots. It keeps us on the top of our game.
