NC, USA: Moore County Resolution Encourages “Voter Participation” in Amendment One Vote

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

Amendment OneThe Moore County Board of Commissioners unanimously passed a resolution Tuesday supporting “voter participation” on the controversial North Carolina Same-Sex Marriage Amendment May 8.

The resolution regarding what is being commonly referred to as Amendment One stopped short of asking voters to support the measure, which specifies that marriage between a man and a woman is the only legal form of union. While same-sex marriage is already banned in the state, the proposed measure would add the ban to the state constitution.

Seven speakers addressed the board prior to the vote. Four opposed Amendment One and three supported it. One of those supporters was Moore County Republican Party Chairman Robert Levy.

NC: Another County Plans Vote in Support of Amendment One

Saturday, March 10th, 2012

Moore County and Amendment OneIf member Nick Picerno has his way, the Moore County Board of Commissioners will vote in April in support of the proposed state constitutional amendment against gay marriage.

Commissioner Chairman Larry Caddell says he favors Picerno’s plan, which came to light during an exchange on the measure, called Amendment One, on the Facebook page of the county tea party organization.

In a Feb. 28 message forwarded from Moore County Republican Party Chairman Bob Levy to the Moore TEA Citizens’ Facebook page, 12th District Chairwoman Marlynn Burns commented: “Far too many of our voters are not aware of the marriage amendment that will be on the May primary ballot. Please join me in an effort to reach out to the voting public to raise awareness of the May ballot initiative. Our liberal opponents are organized and well-funded. We are leaders. This is our battle; this is our time to step forward.”
