On December 19, 2019, NC Senate Candidate Jane Ledwell-Gant kicked off her campaign at a Meet & Greet at the George Washington Carver Community Enrichment Center (GWCCEC). There was a great turnout. Everyone enjoyed tasty refreshments and interesting speakers.
Brooke Schmidly, District Court Judge candidate, spoke about fairness in elections and how Randolph County needs to come back to a place of balance with regard to politics.
Donald Matthews, President of the Randolph County NAACP chapter spoke to us about Jane’s qualifications. Her life experiences make her the ideal choice for State Senator for District 26.
Clyde Foust, Jr. reiterated Mr. Matthews’ confidence in both candidates’ abilities and also related an amusing story about an encounter between Jane and her opponent back when she was a high school student and he was a vice-principal.
