Glad to see this, although I would really love to have a conservative voice from District 2. But that won't happen any time soon unfortunately. However, anything is better than Vilma Leake.
Great Article. Wish you the best in your campaign. Go Lula....
This is great! best of luck to you. Keep going!
Great article and a needed change. The decline of our community and our voices have been falling on death ears. The district has a representative but we do not have an advocate . We sit and watch our communities decline with the erosion of jobs , enrichment services and education. Enough.....we need and deserve a representative who grasp the issue and willing to work to change it for the better. Rosa H. Mustafa .... Run Lula and Win.
It it so exciting and exhilarating to see a Millennial running for office. We need fresh ideas to combat the issues that we are facing in this city. Charlotte is already a beautiful city, and with elected officials who are willing to stand up for our people, we can not be stopped. Reading this makes me more empowered to work in my community and enact change in whatever way that I can. How exciting!
Very proud of you Lula! We all have seen the greatest you are and what you can accomplish. Look forward to supporting you during this incredible ride.
I certainly hope Roy learns from the past mistakes of the last big race in NC.
Kay Hagans Re-Election was hers to lose .... and she did.... I do not know who she was listening to , but her mistakes were legion.
The Minority vote in NC could have saved her, but she choose to assume we were automatically all in. Bad decision on her part.
She all but iqnored the Hispanics in NC who represent over 300,000 votes.. How careless she was. Will Roy do that?
As the Leader of the NCDP Hispanics I can promise an unprecedented voter registration effort and election day turnout for 2016 of the hundreds of thousands Hispanic voters in our great state.
To ensure coordinated and far reaching effort, the NCDP Hispanic American Caucus and the NCDP African American Caucus have come together and formed the “NC Council of Minority Caucuses”. Through this vehicle we will work together on everything from vetting candidates, to GOTV efforts.
The days of the minority voter being presumed upon are over in NC. No candidate will get a pass again. We need to hear from them.... or they will hear from us.
Place reeked of white privilege, the yuppies in noda act so p.c and progressive but priced many underprivileged minority's out of the area I never had an issue being harassed even in the worst of the crack epidemic.
I might be a Democrat, but I am very opposed to tolls! They rob our highways and costs taxpayers more. The DOT is not giving you choices on I-77. They tell you either pay a ransom toll or stay stuck sitting in traffic all day!! I'd rather travel I-85, US Highways 601, 21, 29, 52 and 70!! We need an anti-toll secretary of the DOT to de-fund the tolls and come up with a plan to widen I-77 from LKN to Mount Airy with 6 and 8 lanes!!
Noe Pliego Campos - STEM is where the jobs are. Wanna live in your parents' basement the rest of your life? Major in "humanities".
How smart do you have to be to try this junk? It isn't like it is new. The effects are well known.
Great article Ryan Pitkin! Thanks for shedding some positive light on refugee resettlement in Charlotte! Glad we have a truly understanding new mayor too -- thanks for attending and speaking at this rally Jennifer Roberts!
Thank you for organizing this. i hope it is the first of many awareness shows. I'd like to volunteer to help in any way. Far too many of our loved ones are at risk......... I'd like to donate my time to help.
Anyone affected should be aware that medication-assisted treatment saves lives. Methadone treatment programs are readily available in our community at a daily cost of a couple of packs of cigarettes. Suboxone works too. The key step is the first one: find a treatment program or provider and walk through the door.

20,000 people were arrested in South America for organized crime now they have come to Charlotte in attempts to rape the city like they did Detroit! $MH
Msevert- not going to argue with you. However i explained in better detail on theirFacebook link. At this point the article has been updated and supports the traditions
