SALISBURY —  The North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall will be the guest speaker on Saturday at the July Democratic breakfast.

Marshall, the current secretary of state, became the first woman elected to a statewide executive branch office in N.C. in 1996.

“As secretary of state, I’ve worked to cut the red tape for entrepreneurs starting companies, track special interests and the people who lobby for them, prosecute criminals who are masquerading as charities, and crack down on financial fraud — getting serious jail time for crooks. Customer service is my priority for our office that serves all citizens without regard to if it’s a single individual or a national corporation. With a proven track record of success, I want to continue serving North Carolina by fostering economic growth and championing the interests of all residents,” she has said while campaigning.

The breakfast is a potluck and guests are asked to bring breakfast items if possible. Donations to the Democratic Party of $10 are requested but not required. Doors open at 9:45 a.m. For additional information or to donate, go to
