State Employees Association Endorse Linda Coleman For Congress PDF Print E-mail

EMPAC, the political arm of the State Employees Association of North Carolina, announced today its endorsement of Linda Coleman in her race to represent the N.C. 2nd District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Coleman is a longtime member and friend of SEANC and has been a fierce advocate for working families in her time in the state legislature and as Director of State Personnel. She will continue to fight for accessible and affordable health care and better wages for all when she is elected to Congress.

“Working families have no better friend than Linda Coleman,” said EMPAC state Chairman Tony Smith. “She will represent the people of the 2nd district in Washington with the tenacity and grace she has demonstrated through an illustrious career in this state.”

A former state employee herself, Coleman was the first recipient of EMPAC’s Lisa B. Mitchell Legislator of the Year award in 2008. That year, she put principles over party by single-handedly holding up state budget talks until proper funding and pay raises were included for state employees.

“Time and again she has proven that she is one of us, and earned her nickname ‘SEANC Hero,’” continued Smith.

The 2nd District includes thousands of state employees who work in agencies, universities, prisons and hospitals throughout the Triangle area. It also includes thousands of state retirees who have remained in the area following their career to public service.

The North Carolina Values Coalition announced its endorsement of candidates for North Carolina General Assembly, Congress and judicial candidates for Supreme Court and Court of Appeals for the 2018 elections. The coalition works toward advancing public policies that protect and promote family values by educating voters about the best pro-family candidates for public office.

This year the coalition evaluated candidates using multiple factors, including responses to a questionnaire, candidate interviews, public position statements, and past voting records. We found these men and women to be the best candidates to stand strong in Raleigh and Washington for family values like protecting life, advancing religious freedoms, promoting school choice, and ensuring privacy and safety for our children.

Rep. Rodney Moore, Former Campaign Treasurer, Referred For Criminal Prosecution PDF Print E-mail

Thursday, 18 October 2018 09:16
The State Board of Elections & Ethics Enforcement has found “clear and convincing evidence” that the campaign committee of state Rep. Rodney Moore certified false campaign finance disclosure reports and that money contributed to his campaign was used for impermissible purposes.
 
The nine-member State Board unanimously voted to refer the case against Rep. Moore, a Charlotte Democrat, his former campaign treasurer Tammy Neal and the Committee to Elect Rodney W. Moore to the Mecklenburg County district attorney for further investigation and possible prosecution. Investigation details.
 
A State Board investigation began in 2017 after a routine audit of Moore’s reports turned up irregularities in the campaign’s reporting of contributions and expenditures.
 
Among the significant findings:
The Moore committee did not disclose more than $141,000 in receipts and expenditures between 2010 and 2017.
The committee failed to disclose more than $25,000 in cash withdrawals and cash back from purchases.
 
The Board also heard evidence that the committee submitted altered bank records in responses to questions from State Board auditors.
