Congratulations to the Independent for discovering the amazing Margie Ellison. She and I have worked together on the Coalition Steering Committee. We've worked on the Outreach Committee of the Coalition, and we've canvassed together. I've also brought her to my freshman classes at St. Augustine's in Raleigh to talk with the young people. I always learn new things about Margie and about the other people we engage with. It was a joy to work with her on the last two Chatham elections, for Carl Thompson and against the referendum to change the way Chatham votes. Some people talk the spiritual talk; Margie walks the spiritual walk. She can also love people in such a way that I wonder if they realize what has happened to them. She's a treasure. Thanks to Jennifer's writing and to you all for bringing her life and work to more public attention. I love her and value her perspectives and friendship.
