We need to stop tolerating divisive behavior from our elected and appointed government officials. We stand for the flag and pledge allegiance to honor those men and women of all colors, races, and religions who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom under that banner. We stand and salute the flag as a testament that no matter our differences, no matter who is in office, we stand united in the land of the free and the home of the brave. 

We have had some appointed officials serving on the Bladen County Board of Elections refuse to honor the flag of the United States of America and recite the Pledge of Allegiance.

It is time for our elected and appointed government officials to realize it is not a right to serve our country, it is a privilege! The majority elects people to serve. The key word is serve! The objective should be to serve by example.

If you would like to join together and stand for the flag and our service men and women, please sign this Change.org petition. By signing the petition you agree anyone in an elected or appointed government office should stand for the flag and pledge their allegiance to the United States of America. The petition will be sent to North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper, who appointed the Bladen County Board of Elections members. In addition, the petition will be sent to other elected officials.
