WASHINGTON--Our Revolution on Thursday announced its endorsement of Dennis Litalien for Carteret County Commissioner in North Carolina. Litalian’s campaign also endorsed by the local Our Revolution group, Our Revolution Carteret County. Litalien is challenging an incumbent Republican commissioner who has faced no opposition in the past two elections.
“We’re proud to endorse Dennis Litalien for Caret County Commissioner because he understands that local government must be responsive to the needs of the people, not to political parties or special interests,” said Our Revolution Executive Director, Shannon Jackson. “As commissioner, David will fight to protect the coastline from harmful offshore drilling, improve education, and address the growing opioid crisis.”
Inspired by Senator Bernie Sanders’ call to run for public office, Litalien is one of many progressive Our Revolution candidates who are stepping up to run for office in challenging races for the good of their community.
Our Revolution supports progressive champions at every level of government. By supporting candidates up and down the ballot, we are aiming to transform American politics to make our political and economic systems responsive to the needs of working families.
