Post submitted by Hope Jackson, Southern Regional Field Organizer
The City of Charlotte is gearing up for the September 12 Municipal Primary Election in which Charlotteans will cast their ballot for mayor, city council districts 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 and four city council at large members.
On the heels of the Charlotte LGBTQ Community Candidate Forum and preceding Charlotte Pride, the Human Rights Campaign joined Equality NC and MeckPAC in announcing the endorsement of Mayor Jennifer Roberts for re-election in the Charlotte Primary. Equality NC and MeckPAC have also endorsed a slate of pro-equality Charlotte council candidates.
If you live in Charlotte, you can cast your ballot today! Here are some key dates and things to keep in mind:
Charlotte is the second largest city in the U.S. without LGBTQ-inclusive non-discrimination protections. Mayor Roberts has been a staunch LGBTQ advocate in her support for non-discrimination protections and continuous fight against anti-LGBTQ legislation HB2 and HB142. We know that Charlotte needs a pro-equality mayor that will fight for all Charlotteans, without compromise. So that’s why we fully support Mayor Roberts bid for re-election and encourage you to do the same.
If you live in Charlotte and would like to join HRC volunteers in getting out the vote to re-elect Mayor Roberts, contact HRC Regional Field Organizer, Hope Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
