Keith Crisco

Keith

In the untimely and tragic death of Keith Crisco, the people of
Randolph County and North Carolina have lost a statesman, a leader, a
friend, and a true public servant. Keith was a successful businessman
who loved his family and his fellow human beings. He was honorable in
word and action and lived his belief that those who have been blessed
(as he was) with talents for business and leadership have a duty to
use those talents to benefit the whole community. To all who knew him,
Keith’s life taught volumes about courtesy, friendship and service. We
all grieve Keith’s passing, but our thoughts and prayers especially go
out to Jane and the Crisco family at this sad time.

Comments from Jim Meredith, Chairman of the Randolph Democratic Party.

Randolph County Democrats Endorse Justice Robin Hudson

The Randolph County Democratic Party is proud to endorse NC Associate Justice Robin Hudson in the May 6 primary.

It is extremely important that Democrats vote in the Supreme Court Associate Judicial race for the incumbent justice, Robin Hudson. She is the only Democrat running and she has been an outstanding judge. Outside money from the Koch Brothers and other large corporate interests, such as Walmart, have mounted a smear campaign against her, but if we turn out in force, we can prevent the Koch brothers from buying this important judicial seat.

Throughout her 37 years of legal experience, Justice Robin Hudson’s focus has been on fairness and on understanding real people and real families.

In her 13 years on the appellate bench, Justice Hudson has worked hard to make the fair decision in every case, no matter how difficult it is.  She never brings any personal or political bias into the courtroom.

And more than anyone else on the Supreme Court, she knows the real challenges that real people face with jobs, families, property, safety, kids, and schools.

Justice Robin Hudson.  

Fair. Independent.

Understanding real people and real families.

Feel free to download, print and distribute the flyer linked below. If you can do so, we are requesting volunteers to distribute copies of the flyer at voting location on Tuesday, May 6. If you can help, please be at Randolph Democratic Party Headquarters (118 N Church St. Asheboro, NC) at 7pm, Monday, May 5. At that meeting, we will assign locations and times to volunteers and will provide handout materials.
