Winners of Democratic primary races for County Commissioner to address group

Pittsboro, NC - The Young Democrats of Chatham County will hold a "Pizza and Politics" night on Friday, July 7, 2006 in the Multipurpose room of the Central Carolina Community College in Pittsboro.

Carl Thompson, George Lucier and Tom Vanderbeck, the recent winners of the Democratic primary races for County Commissioner, will attend to welcome the group to the Democratic Party and to meet them one-on-one. Each of these gentlemen will be asked to answer the questions, "Why are you a Democrat anyway?" and "What does the Democratic Party need from theYoung Democrats and why should they devote their time and efforts to those needs?"

After these remarks, there will be a business meeting to form committees and select officers. Invitations to the event have been sent to each of the 162 Chatham County registered Democrats between the ages of 17 and 20 but the event is also open to Democrats in that age group who have not yet registered to vote.

Members of the organizing committee, sponsored by the Chatham County Women Democrats, are Marian Copeland of Pittsboro, Margaret Fallers of Chapel Hill, Margie Ellison of Bear Creek and Beverly Bland of Pittsboro. Precinct officers have been asked to call each of the Young Democrats in their precincts to encourage them to attend and to become actively involved in the political life of the county.

Chatham County Democrats between the ages of 17 and 20 who did not receive a written invitation but would like to attend the event may call 919-542-3965 for further information.
