Thanksgiving With the Durham Rescue Mission, November 27

 Volunteers Needed       



Let’s help the Durham Rescue Mission on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday November 27th!

 The Durham County GOP, in conjunction with the Black Republican Committee, invite you to take part in a rewarding effort to help the Durham Rescue Mission feed those on Thanksgiving who would otherwise not have a meal.   Help is needed for two-hour intervals to serve food.  Times for this are from 7:30 AM – 3:00 PM.  Flexibility is welcome.

Also, meal deliveries begin at 10:30 AM, and routes are already planned, with two people assigned to each route.  There are other groups that volunteer as food servers, so signing up is on a first come, first serve basis.

Deadline for signing up is October 17.  Please contact Barbara Beard at barbabeard@yahoo.com as soon as possible, so she may send your name to the Durham Rescue Mission volunteer head.  He will organize all volunteers and will depend on anyone signing up to be there and on time, as this is a massive undertaking.

We look forward to joining others in serving the Durham community!

Durham County GOP Endorses Fred Battaglia for Durham County District Court Judge

Durham Deserves Better than Incumbent with Lowest Ratings in the State

The Durham County Republican Party enthusiastically endorses Fred Battaglia, Jr., for the non-partisan position of District Court Judge in Judicial District 14 in the November 4th General Election.  Fred Battaglia is a respected attorney, Vice President of the Durham County Bar, and has represented thousands of Durham residents in a variety of courts, including Traffic, Criminal, Juvenile, and Family.

Electing Fred Battaglia will greatly increase the level of professionalism in Durham’s District Court.  According to the Judicial Performance Evaluation Survey of members of the NC Bar Association, Fred Battaglia’s opponent received the lowest rating of any judge in the entire state, while Battaglia earned the highest rating of any candidate or sitting judge in Durham County on such key qualifications as integrity & impartiality, professionalism, legal ability, communication and administration skills.

The Durham County GOP endorses Fred Battaglia not only because of his judicial temperament, sound knowledge of the law, and experience, but also because of his long-time commitment to the people of Durham.  Battaglia has volunteered as a 9th grade Sunday School teacher for 14 years, has served as a truancy judge at Riverside High School, and has spearheaded numerous events that raised more than $50,000 for various Durham charities, such as Housing for New Hope, Habitat for Humanity, Urban Ministries, Duke’s Cancer Center, and The Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.

Durham deserves better than being stuck for four more years with the worst rated judge in NC.  The Durham County GOP is happy to cross party lines to endorse such an excellent alternative – Fred Battaglia for Durham County District Court Judge.
