A message from Our new Chairman

Our new County Chairman Gary St. Arnauld has a message for all Macon County Democrats

I’m honored to have been elected to be the Macon County Democratic Party Chair from 2019-2021 and I look forward to working with Macon Democrats.

The North Carolina Democratic Party and the Macon County Democratic Party are strong. This year we had great turnout for our precinct meetings and our county convention. We elected many new people to our leadership team and they are fired up and ready to go. We have active and well attended Macon County Democratic Men’s and Women’s Clubs. Democrats occupy the Governor’s Mansion, the Attorney General’s office and we control the NC Board of Elections and NC Supreme Court. We broke the Republican’s veto proof majority in both the NC House and NC Senate in 2018. 

The 2020 election promises to be the highest turnout in state history. Interest is going to be off the charts. We will elect a new president and vice president, re-elect Governor Roy Cooper and AG Josh Stein, elect a new lieutenant governor, a new US Senator, put Mark Meadows out to pasture, elect at least three NC Supreme Court Justices as well as elect new members to the NC Senate and NC House and two Macon County commissioners.

In every election, we always hear someone say that “This is the most important election of our lifetime.” And “they” are often wrong. BUT DOES ANYBODY BELIEVE THAT THE 2020 ELECTION IS NOT GOING TO BE THE MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION OF THEIR LIFETIME. Besides the people whose names are on the ballot, we will be voting for democracy, our constitution, decency, respect, civility, the environment, fairness, justice, Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, fiscal responsibility, health care for all and many more of our core values.

We are going to need everyone’s help to achieve our goals and I look forward to working with each and every Democrat and fair minded unaffiliated voter to put our country, state and county back on the right path.
