Rowan Democrats to meet Thursday

Rowan County Democrats will gather for two important meetings Thursday. At 6 p.m., the party’s executive committee will meet in the Commissioners’ Chambers on the second floor of the County Administrative Building, 130 West Innes St. Party officers, precinct officers, auxiliary officers and Democratic office holders comprise the executive committee.
At 7 p.m. in the same location, the party’s monthly meeting will convene. Democratic candidates Wayne Goodwin, running for insurance commissioner, and Beth Wood, running for state auditor, are the featured speakers.
A native of Hamlet, Goodwin was a Morehead Scholar at UNC-Chapel Hill. A husband and father of two, Goodwin has served in the N.C. House of Representatives and was succeeded by his wife, Melanie, when he decided to run for labor commissioner in 2004. Goodwin’s public service also includes stints as assistant insurance commissioner and assistant state fire marshall.
Wood has worked in the offices of State Auditor and State Treasurer and is seeking to become the first female state auditor. She is a native of the eastern North Carolina town of Cove City. A 1984 graduate of East Carolina University, Wood became a CPA in 1987.
Meetings of the Rowan Democrats are open to the public, and are regularly scheduled for the fourth Thursday of the month.
