Candidates Gather In OUR Neighborhood!


On Sunday, June 6, several local District 5 candidates gathered in “The Authors” in Kernersville for a neighborhood meet and greet. In true grassroots fashion, this 120 home neighborhood had the opportunity to meet each candidate on a personal level in a home environment.

Present at the event were School Board Candidates at Large Jeannie Metcalf, Lori Goins Clark, and Donny Lambeth. Jane Goins represented the School Board District 2 race. Jeff Polston, candidate for Clerk of Court, and Virginia Foxx representative Brad Langston rounded out the group.

A brief program was presented on the Alinsky styled community group C.H.A.N.G.E. Documents from the C.H.A.N.G.E. Spring Conference were shared that illustrated their 2010 agenda to include changes to the Forsyth County school assignment plan, forced busing, and the elimination of Out of School Suspension.

Every school board candidate at this event publicly stated their opposition to the C.H.A.N.G.E. 2010 agenda. All pledged to maintain a sensitive and conservative agenda.

Jeff Polston, Clerk of Court candidate, pledged to uphold all laws, carry out his duty with integrity, to improve customer service, improve courthouse security, to improve public access to information, and to maintain accuracy, efficiency, and accountability in the bail bond industry and Clerk’s office staff.

Brad Langston gave an update on Representative Foxx’s activities. He left us all confident that Virginia Foxx cares deeply about the conservative family values of the 5th district.

I cannot thank these candidates enough for their efforts on behalf of our community. All of them went to great effort to meet this neighborhood on a personal level. Neighbors who could not attend missed out on great food, a good time, and an informative program. These were REAL people in a REAL neighborhood who truly want to look after OUR REAL interests!
