Faison eyes N.C. Democratic Party chairmanship

Posted by on Mon, Dec 13, 2010 at 4:08 PM

N.C. Rep. Bill Faison of Orange and Caswell Counties announced today that he will seek the N.C. Democratic Party chairman’s post.

Faison wants to better connect the state party to local activists, focus on redistricting and recruiting and training candidates for 2012.

“At stake is a better education for our children, a fairer society and a better life for all of our concerns, not just a select few,” Faison said in a press release. “We must take back the Legislature and keep a Democratic Governor in 2012. Failure would be devastating to our state for decades to come.”

Current chairman David Young announced in late November that he wouldn’t seek re-election when the party convenes in January to tap leaders. He served one two-year term. Faison, a medical malpractice attorney, was re-elected to the General Assembly in November, winning for a fourth time.
