We want to introduce you to our new OFA North Carolina Field Organizers. These leaders will be organizing communities across the state. Listen to their stories and why they joined the campaign. If you want to get involved in your community be sure to find your local field office and make a difference.
Shannon Anderson, Field Organizer in Charlotte: I am an attorney and I sold my partnership interest in my law firm at the beginning of this year because I believe that this is the most important thing going on in the world right now. President Obama has accomplished so much for the American people in the last four years and I’m going to fight for four more years. I’m here in North Carolina because with this election, we can ensure that President Obama’s accomplishments will continue to positively change North Carolina.
Robert Stephens, Field Organizer in Winston-Salem: I’m working for the president because I believe in opportunity and equality of opportunity. When I heard the president speak at the Democratic National Convention in 2004 I believed in him and I believed in what he was talking about, that we do not live in a “red” America, it’s not a “blue” America, it’s the United States of America. And I really want to make sure that I do what I have to do to get that dream moving forward..
Leslie Wright, Field Organizer in Greenville: I really believe in equal opportunity for all Americans. It defines the American dream. I’ve been given wonderful opportunities in my life and I want to fight to make sure everybody has the same shot I do.
Randy Sturgill, Field Organizer in Brunswick County: I’m out here working for my grandchildren and my children’s future.
Ashlei Blue, Field Organizer in Charlotte: I started college when the economy started tipping down. I’m really lucky that I had the ability to get financial aid, and now that I’ve graduated it’s easier for me to pay that back. The President understands what it’s like to be a student taking loans or financial aid, and that’s why we need to keep him in office.
