We had a fantastic meeting that was very well attended! So many new faces and great members of our community who care about preserving all of the wonderful things about where we live and helping to make needed changes happen!
Chuck Koubenec shared the seats that are opening up in our local government, so I am including that list here, at the bottom of this post. We are encouraging local citizens to run for these positions! You don't have to be a politician to run for office! In fact, we would prefer it. As long as you live in the district of the position you are running for and don't have a criminal record, you qualify! We need you!
Andrew Bullins is starting a group (as part of CCSC) for business owners who want support and helpful information to keep their businesses open if they choose to, regardless of lockdowns. Having read the executive orders from Governor Cooper, we believe there is a very good chance of that happening. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in being part of that group.
We have reached out to all local elected officials and asked them some very direct questions in terms of their stand on the most pressing issues(compulsory vaccines, vaccine cards, executive orders) and heard from several, but not all. We will try to keep you posted.
Christin McMasters who has a Ph.D. in Political Science shared some very interesting information on the role of citizens. Don't forget to listen to her first talk, The Role of Government. It is on the CCSC website.

I shared important info regarding the mask mandates our local schools are trying to enforce ignoring parents who want to have a choice. I am including a petition for parents/citizens in Mount Airy School District who believe that parents have the right to CHOOSE if they want their kids to wear masks to school or not. Please sign this: PETITION TO MAINTAIN PARENTAL RIGHT TO CHOOSE
