Submitted by: Sharon Carter

One hundred fifty excited Republicans cheered Lara Trump, daughter-in-law of Republican Presidential Candidate, Donald Trump, Wednesday afternoon as she cut the ribbon for the grand opening ceremony of the election headquarters for the Union County Republican Party.

Union County Republican Chairman, Roger Stanton, welcomed the crowd and called on Reverend Jimmy Bention for the invocation.

Mrs. Trump reminded the group that she, herself, is a Tar Heel, hailing from Wilmington.

She spoke of her father-in-law’s love for America, saying that he had begun to notice the deteriorating condition of the country and decided that he must do something about it. She added that, “..and when Donald Trump decides to do something, he does it.”

She praised Mr. Trump for his love of family as well, talking about his sense of fairness and his wisdom in business practices which, she said, “will serve him well in the oval office.” She added a note regarding North Carolina’s importance in this election.

The GOP headquarters is located at 104 Indian Trail Road, Indian Trail, NC. Election materials on all candidates can be picked up at this location.

Jeff Carpenter NC Superior Court Judge District 20B (Lee Seat)

jeffery-carpenter-superior-court-judge WHY SHOULD YOU CARE ABOUT JUDICIAL ELECTIONS?
Courts protect us all from the overreaching of the government, by ensuring our rights under the law are not inferior to the influences of money and powerful people. The average citizen will likely never speak to his or her Senator, Congressman or the President, but will likely be affected in some way by the actions of a judge. To put it plainly, a judge is where citizens come in contact with the government, and it is where the oppressed and the wronged seek shelter and help. In order for courts to continue to apply the law, judges must be of high character, capable of putting the law as enacted by the people ahead of their own personal desires, and to act with honor and respect for all. For these reasons it is all the more important for you to vote because the decisions made in courts are likely to directly affect your life and the lives of your family and friends.
