Pittsboro mayor to run for Democratic state chair

Pittsboro Mayor Randy Voller said Thursday he plans to seek the Democratic Party chairmanship next year when David Parker steps down.

Voller, a 43-year old real estate executive, plans to hold a news conference Friday morning at state Democratic headquarters to announce his candidacy. He will likely face state Sen. Eric Mansfield of Fayetteville is expected to seek the party post.

A contest, said Voller, “will be good the party and everyone should emerge a winner.”

Voller, who is Chatham County Democratic chairman, said he would focus on party building if he was elected chairman. He said Chatham County had the highest turnout at 76.5 percent of any county in the state in November. He said the county raised $75,000 during the past year – a large figure for a modest sized county.

Randy Voller will be an effective State NC Democrat Chair.

Randy Voller knows how elections are won, with knowledge, science and hard work.

The Democrats in Chatham County raised over $75,000, impressive for a county its size, and 900 volunteers, and fought a strong electoral campaign on the ground, with hard work and excellent organization. The leadership of Randy Voller was vital to this effort.

In the victory for retiring Joe Hackney's House Seat alone, our opponent had over $100,000 to spend, but lost. Voller also led the County Democratic Party to hold both of the two fiercely contested Board of Commissioner races for the Democrats. Democratic turnout last November was an astounding 80%.

Randy Voller understands how to win, he knows how to organize the Party and deliver the votes needed for Democratic candidates to win. The State Democratic Party needs his leadership right now in order to defeat the money GOP candidates have given to them. Democrats work, Randy Voller works hardest of all, to deliver victory for them. The NC Democratic Party will apply his methods and energy to win if they select him as State Chair of the NC Democratic Party.

Impressive Innovations of Randy Voller

Raising more money in his small rural county than others that are several times its size while turning out the highest percentage of Democratic votes are impressive credentials for a prospective party chair. Any other contenders for the office will be judged on the same metrics:  votes cast and funds raised.  Good to see a fresh approach stepping forward.  Good to see competence recognized.  There is hope for a Democratic revival.
