On Tuesday at the Time Warner Arena in Charlotte, North Carolina Democratic National Committee Chair Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz was joined by Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx in a kickoff ceremony for the upcoming 2012 Democratic National Convention to be held next September in the Queen City.
“Charlotte is a dynamic, diverse and vibrant community – a city that reflects America in the 21st century,” Wasserman Schulz told the crowd. She added, “What’s happening here in Charlotte is what President Obama has set out to do for the country: Charlotte is strengthening and diversifying the community through investments in education, technology, research and development, through innovations and entrepreneurship that will create jobs for working families."
At the event the DNC unveiled its official DNC 2012 Convention logo, which according to Wasserman Schultz represents people rather than special interests.
“We’re not kicking off the convention by holding a closed-door, special interest, invite-only event, selling access to the highest bidder.” Rather, she remarked, “We’re kicking it off by bringing people from all across Charlotte, and all across the Carolinas, together, to celebrate the convention and the community.”
In addition to chairing the DNC, Wasserman Schultz is also the U.S. House Representative for Florida’s 20th Congressional district.
Also at the event were past and present community leaders including current Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx and former mayor Harvey Gantt, who served Charlotte in the City Council from 1974 to 1983, and then as mayor from 1983 to 1987. 2012 Convention leaders Dr. Dan Murrey and Steve Kerrigan were in attendance as well.
Echoing the theme of community, Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx stated, “This convention will be about coming together, strengthening our community and renewing our faith that tomorrow’s promise is possible IF we work hard today.
North Carolina, which had voted Republican in every presidential contest since 1980, instead voted in 2008 for Democratic candidate Barack Obama, a feat the Democrats hope to again achieve in 2012.
