NCACC Statement Regarding the Death of George Floyd

Press Release:

    Over the last few weeks, our fellow North Carolinians have engaged in protests against racism and brutality following the tragic death of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25th. The North Carolina Association of County Commissioners unequivocally condemns acts of racism, violence, and injustice. Any such acts are counter to our organization's mission and vision, which is to better our state by empowering all 100 counties to promote their own well-being.

    The NCACC will always support a peaceful path toward a more just society. Addressing the crises and political unrest arising from deeply rooted inequities requires effective, steady, and strong leadership. Compassion and understanding will be needed as well, along with a willingness to make significant changes in some of our systems, institutions, and our own hearts.

    The strength of our County Association lies with our members. Our diverse experiences, opinions, and identities are what make our organization strong. We as North Carolina County Commissioners are dedicated to lasting change that will make our 100 counties, our state, and our nation a better place to live for all people. The work before us is difficult.

    We are up to the challenge.

    Sincerely,

NCACC Executive Committee

    Kevin Austin, NCACC President & Yadkin County Commissioner
    Ronnie Smith, NCACC President-Elect & Martin County Commissioner
    Frank Williams, NCACC First Vice President & Brunswick County Commissioner
    Tracey Johnson, NCACC Second Vice President & Washington County Commissioner
    Brenda Howerton, NCACC Past President & Durham County Commissioner
