A few days ago I had the privilege of addressing Scotland County citizens in Laurinburg. Here's a link to the newspaper coverage of my visit.
Among my comments, there is this assertion:
“For us to govern, we’ve got to win first, and for us to win we’ve got to get our message out, and for us to get our message out we’ve got to be organized, and for us to be organized we’ve got to have meetings like this even on rainy, dreary days,” Goodwin said from inside the Atkinson Street American Legion post.
In the coming months heading into 2016 we have an obligation - a civic duty - as North Carolina citizens to speak up, organize and rally voters to turn out on Election Day. Too much hangs in the balance for the State we love (and its future) for us to do otherwise.
Are you sure you don't want to run for governor in 2016?
Agreed. Got to do the street-level work first...out-work them!
