Posted this morning to the Facebook page of Equality North Carolina head Chris Sgro:
Friends, it is my honor to be appointed to the remainder of Representative Ralph Johnson’s unexpired term. Ralph was a great leader for Greensboro and I have big shoes to fill. Amos Quick will fill the seat after January and have my support, but GCDP stepped up to make sure there is at least one LGBT voice in the NCGA as we push to #RepealHB2 in the short session. I’m humbled by this morning. Onward!
Johnson died of a stroke last month. (Tipped by JMG reader Rich)
