We believe Kay Crowder is the best choice and the only fair choice to fill the vacancy on Raleigh City Council District D. Kay is a proven leader who can step into the job on day one and be effective. She is the only person who can. District D deserves no less.
Kay is the only possible appointee who has been elected to this position by the voters, having twice earned their trust after positive campaigns and because of her work in office. She ran a strong race in 2019 and could have called for a runoff but did not. We now know that she was replaced by an unscrupulous candidate who lied repeatedly about her record and his own qualifications. We urge Mayor Baldwin and the City Council to appoint Kay and restore to District D the outstanding representation for which our community previously was known.
