Sam Edney Announces Halt to Public and In-Person Campaign Events in Response to Coronavirus

Sam Edney, candidate for NC House District 113, announced today that his campaign will halt all public and in-person campaign events in response to the coronavirus outbreak to ensure public safety.

“Public health is the most important thing to consider at this moment. We cannot be leaders in our community if we are not ensuring the public’s safety, and that means not exposing the public to the coronavirus during campaign stops. I am deeply disappointed that I will not be able to talk with members of my community in person at this time, but we will find other ways to communicate,” Edney stated.

Josh Remillard is postponing his campaign events.

Moe Davis, the Democratic Nominee for Congress in the 11th District, has announced he is suspending public events per Centers for Disease Control guidelines. Safety first. We had planned to roll out a Moe Davis Listening Tour in late March and April with stops in every county in the 11th District so that we could learn from constituents what issues are of greatest concern. We hope to schedule those events soon. Keep an eye out on our Facebook page, @MoeDavisforCongress for upcoming virtual events. Those who have questions about Moe Davis can email info@moedavis.com or follow us on Facebook, Twitter at @ColMorrisDavis and @MoeNC11, and Instragram at @MoeDavisforCongress

 

Brian Caskey.   The supporters for new leadership in District 48 are the lifeline of my campaign to become your North Carolina State Senator. Flipping the Senate blue will mean a vitally needed expansion of Medicaid, passing a budget that supports our public education system, including raises for our teachers, and also protecting our beautiful mountains and rivers in Western North Carolina. For this reason, our campaign will not be taking a break while we deal with COVID-19 in our community. We will not be canvassing or holding meet-and-greet events until it is safe to do so, but we will be phone-banking, sending out letters and postcards, and hitting the airwaves on television and radio stations. Our community depends on change in Raleigh and my family’s commitment to being that change means that we will be doing what we do for the good people of Buncombe, Henderson, and Transylvania Counties. We hope that we can count on your volunteerism and support. brian@briancaskey.com
