“I support Kristen because I haven’t really seen other candidates who have a racial analysis [in their platform] like Kristen. She has the potential to move Alamance County towards equity, and while one person can’t do everything, political positions are a platform. I have not seen the racial disparity gap close at all - it’s time for the outcomes for brown and black people to be different. This is not a Democrat or Republican issue, but an issue of candidates who have a racial analysis. We can have that conversation with Kristen. She has the potential to bring us to a different place and speak truth to power.”
