NAACP of Chatham plays a vital role in our community and in our election process. NAACP leaders serve in many roles within our county government. We need more minority representation in county government. We will be there to meet folks and address some of these issues.
Chatham has deep roots in farming. This show doesn't disappoint. Fun for all ages. We will be out speaking with folks about how rural parts of the county need better representation. https://www.facebook.com/events/chatham-county-4-h-livestock-show/1977594049141912/
Every year Moncure hosts a great candidate forum. This is a great opportunity to hear candidates discuss issues face to face. We will be there ready to discuss the current board's lack of regard for Rural Chatham citizen input and the lack of county economic growth measures.

Moncure has been in the news recently with NC's forced dump of coal ash in the area. The people of Moncure have been through a lot and need to be listened to. This is a great event with live music and food and should be a great community awareness opportunity for the a very under-represented part of the county. We will be there talking with folks and hearing their concerns.

Chatham county is a fairly large county neighboring both Wake and Orange county. Chatham County contains towns and communities like Chapel Hill, Cary, Goldston, Pittsboro, Siler City, Silk Hope, Snow Camp, Bonlee, Moncure, and Brickhaven. The county is socioeconomically divided. Districts 1, 2, 3 attract bedroom communities while districts 4 and 5 contain some of NC's finest workable farmland, rural factories, and families who have been in Chatham for generations. The Rural oasis of the terrain brings affluent commuters here but Chatham needs Economic Development if we are going grow our commercial tax base allowing for more jobs, an increase in school funding, and investment in our infrastructure and water facilities.
Brian Bock is committed to protecting Chatham County's greatest asset- Jordan Lake. He was instrumental in helping the county put in some of the toughest water protections in the state. Vote for Brian Bock in November.
This summer teachers all over the state marched in Raleigh to express frustration with lack of teacher funding. Brian was there to hear teachers discuss the nuance of funding. Let's do more for the teachers of Chatham. Vote for Brian Bock in November 6th.
Brian Bock discusses how his commissioner opponent Diana Hales nearly cost the county 19 million when she voted NO to a settlement contract when the county was forced by the state to take Coal Ash from Duke Energy.
2010 proved to be a historic year for the Republican Party in Chatham County. A traditionally Blue County, Chatham Republicans Walter Petty, Pam Stewart, and Brian Bock swept the commissioner's race for only the second time since the Civil War! At the time, our economy was on life support and this committed team of Republicans was set on opening Chatham county for Business. Bock and team were committed to preserving the rural splendor of the county while creating economic development that would help Chatham bounce back years later. Fast forward to 2014.
Democrats regained power in 2014 and rode the wave of economic growth put into place by Bock and team. This new trifecta of Democrats want to severely limit economic development that Chatham residents desperately need to decrease pressure on raising personal property taxes to pay for county expenses. A runaway tax plan, a closed for business blanket zoning policy, lack of governmental transparency by democrats and conversations with voters are what inspired Bock to run once more- to serve Chatham and guide the policies he and his team put into place. 2018 marks a historic moment for Chatham. Unprecedented growth, 2 megasites, Chatham Park, Environmental concerns looming, and lack of commercial tax revenue demands strong and honest leadership to usher Chatham into this new era. Most importantly we need to listen to the 70,000 Chatham county residents and get out of private BOC meetings and talk to the people on how they want to govern the county.
