Tuesdays with Tillis is marking its 100th consecutive Tuesday of rallying outside Senator Tillis's Raleigh office on Dec 18 at 11:30am. The theme for that day is protecting the freedom of the press, with Aylett Colston, Chuck Tryon, and Faisal Khan speaking. Come if you can, and if you can't, post a comment of appreciation on the event page or their Facebook page. Deep gratitude to Karen Ziegler and the dedicated crew of regulars who keep this going! Here's a video to get you ready to go.
Today's post will be short and straight to the point. Thank you Governor Cooper for vetoing the Voter ID bill! (Read more here.) Thank you to the people and groups who wrote to Governor Cooper requesting the veto including the ACLU and Equality NC. Thank you Democracy NC for making it easy to contact the governor.
The NCGA is expected to override Governor Cooper's veto. The Senate convenes today at 10:30am and "veto messages from the governor" is listed on the agenda. We will keep you posted.
