Asheville: In May, our primaries will be held, and in these primaries Buncombe County voters will have the opportunity to forever preserve the definition of marriage in our State. As the only Southern State left that has not done so, we are finally getting the opportunity to take this to the people.
Amendment One modifies our North Carolina State Constitution to say that "Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this State." Why is this important? While this definition is already on the books in legal form, voting YES will prevent future Activist Judges and Politicians from taking away, what has been known since the dawn of time, the true definition of Marriage between one man and one woman.
There are many who do not want the preservation of this definition to pass. President Obama has recently injected his thoughts against preserving marriage in North Carolina. Millions of dollars are being poured into North Carolina by outside groups like the California Democrats who have mobilized against this Amendment in OUR State. They are touting this as an Anti-Gay Marriage amendment. It is not. This is an amendment to preserve the definition of marriage in OUR beautiful State of North Carolina; this is why we need your help.
Join us in our efforts. The Buncombe County Republican Party will be actively working to get out the YES vote for this amendment. We have appointed two members as Co-Chairs with the Vote FOR Marriage group, Dorothea Alderfer and Gail Harding; they will be steering our efforts moving forward. If you would like to volunteer or contribute please contact Dorothea Alderfer at firstname.lastname@example.org or for more information please visit www.voteformarriagenc.com
