Steele Creek Residents Association Annual Meeting is February 25

2016 Meeting Topics: Highway 160 and Elections

(January 11, 2016) The 2016 meeting of the Steele Creek Residents Association will be on Thursday evening, February 25 at Christ the King Church (13501 South Tryon St).

Time:     6:30 PM - Pre-meeting Meet and Mingle
              7:00 PM - Presentations
              7:30 PM - Meet and Mingle with local candidates and organizations

There will be a pre-meeting from 6:30 to 7:00 when attendees can meet, mingle, and learn about over a dozen non-profit groups and local government agencies that will have displays with information about their services and programs.

Beginning at 7:00 speakers will give presentations on Highway 160 and elections.

Highway 160Robert Cook, Charlotte Regional Transportation Planning Organization (CRTPO) Secretary, will give an update on the status of the possible improvements to State Highway 160 (Steele Creek Road). In October the Federal Highway Administration approved the state's Transportation Improvement Program (TIP), which includes two Highway 160 projects, although the I-77 Toll Road controversy may place the TIP in jeopardy. See  Highway 160 Projects Approved by FHWA.

Vote!A representative of the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections will give an overview of the 2016 election process, including the schedule for the primaries and general election--including early voting, what offices are on the ballot, terms of office, and the effect changes to voting laws may have on your ability to vote and on lines at the polls.

2012 Annual Meeting
Christ the King Church is located at 13501 South Tryon St, just southwest of CMC-Steele Creek. From the intersection of S Tryon St (Hwy 49) and Steele Creek Rd (Hwy 160), continue southwest on S Tryon St through the traffic signal at Steelecroft Pkwy and past the fire station. Take the next left into the Christ the King parking lot. Enter the building on the left side and continue straight through the vestibule into the meeting room.

2014 Annual MeetingCandidates for offices in districts that cover Steele Creek have been invited to participate in an additional Meet and Mingle period after the presentations. Candidates can greet voters near signs that will be set up for each office and district. The signs will list the candidates names and include a map of the district and precinct boundaries.

The following candidates have been invited:

Candidates for United States House of Representatives for current District 9*: Christian Cano (D), Robert Pittenger (R), and George Rouco (R).

Candidates for United States House of Representatives for current District 12*: Alma Adams (D), Ryan Duffie (R), Gardenia Henley (D), Juan Martin (D), and Leon Threatt (R).

* Note that congressional district boundaries currently are in litigation. The North Carolina General Assembly adopted new boundaries on Friday, February 19 that placed all of Steele Creek in District 12. The new districts still have to be approved by the US Courts. If the new districts are approved, candidates will need to file in the new districts beginning March 16. Unless the current districts are retained (which seems unlikely) there will be no official congressional candidates in North Carolina before March 16. It is unknown which candidates, if any, will participate in the Residents Association meeting.

Candidates for Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners At-Large: Jeremy Brasch (R), Patricia Cotham (D), Damiko Faulkner (D), Trevor Fuller (D), and Ella Scarborough (D).

Candidates for Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners District 2: Lula Dualeh (D), Angela Edwards (D), and Vilma Leake (D).

Candidates for Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners District 6: Bill James (R), and Joel Levy (R).

Candidates for North Carolina Senate District 37: Bob Diamond (R) and Jeff Jackson (D).

Candidates for North Carolina Senate District 38: Roderick Davis (D), Joel Ford (D), and Richard Rivette (R).

Candidates for North Carolins House of Representatives District 92: Chaz Beasley (D), Tom Davis (R), and Charles Jeter (R).
