Though we want every Democratic voter in North Carolina to be aware of this message, the following message is primarily designed for the 700+ persons hailing from each of the the State's 100 counties who will attend the North Carolina Democratic Party's State Executive Committee meeting in Hamlet on January 26, 2008.
To save time during your visit and full day of Democratic Party business, and as a function of our hospitality, you are invited to a FREE lunch hosted by the Richmond County Democratic Party and the Eighth Congressional District.
Because 2008 is going to be a Democratic year, we have named it the "Democratic Victory Luncheon".
However, the persons who have made this Democratic Victory Luncheon possible - as well as the subsequent Democratic victories that will follow in November - are the following SPONSORS who have provided the necessary funds to make lunch available to everyone at no cost. The sponsors are:
Lt. Governor Bev Perdue, candidate for Governor
Treasurer Richard Moore, candidate for Governor
State Senator Kay Hagan, candidate for U.S. Senate
Jim Neal, candidate for U.S. Senate
Jim Long, Insurance Commissioner and dean of the Council of State
State Representative Melanie Wade Goodwin and
former State Representative Wayne Goodwin
Beth Wood, candidate for State Auditor
David Young, County Commissioner and candidate for State Treasurer
Sen. Janet Cowell, candidate for State Treasurer
Joint Sponsors / Candidates for the Court of Appeals
and N.C. Supreme Court
Judge Cheri Beasley (Court of Appeals)
Judge Kristin Ruth (Court of Appeals)
Suzanne Reynolds (Supreme Court)
Of all the luncheon sponsors, the lead or primary sponsors are the two Democratic gubernatorial candidates.
Lunch will be served from 11 a.m. through 12:30 p.m. in the banquet rooms of Cole Auditorium, located at its proud home of Richmond Community College in Hamlet, North Carolina. (The main campus, adjacent to the auditorium, is on West Hamlet Ave., U.S. Highway 74 Business.) So that everyone will have time to eat and make it to the 1 pm start of the official meeting, we respectfully request that attendees eat and then make way for others who will be following them in the banquet room line.

Remember this: Due solely to the sponsorships by the above candidates, every person attending the State Executive Committee meeting will enjoy a FREE BBQ & Chicken lunch. Please express your appreciation to the above sponsors for their thoughtfulness in remembering attendees of the State Executive Committee meeting. And, of course, remember them at the polls when you vote in May and November!
