The people of Texas and Louisiana are experiencing the terrible devastation of Hurricane Harvey and will be doing so for months, even years to come. And now Hurricane Irma is bearing down on the Southeast coast.
We humbly ask that those who wish to contribute to our campaign in the next two weeks contribute instead to relief agencies on the frontlines of the devastation.
Our recommendations for giving to victims of Hurricane Harvey is the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, started by Houston’s Mayor Sylvester Turner, or the American Red Cross.
We will share a recommendation for Hurricane Irma when one is established.
Meanwhile, if you desire to help our campaign with your time, we now have a Volunteer sign-up form live on our site.
We can finally reveal one of our exciting new media projects we’ve been working on: Check out Flip the NC 10th, our new podcast that we’ll use to share information about the pressing issues facing the people of North Carolina’s 10th congressional district.
In our first episode, meet our Communications Director, Courtney Phillips, and hear from me about some of the reasons I’m running to represent the people of North Carolina’s beautiful 10th district.
You can subscribe on iTunes and on Google Play today!
As I travel the district, I’m spending loads of time in my car. When I’m not talking with people on the phone, I’m listening to some good music.
I thought I’d share my current playlist. You’ll get to see some of my new favorites, some old favorites, and a bit of “road music”.

We’re pleased to announce that David Wilson Brown has officially filed his campaign with the FEC, confirming that he will run for the office of US Representative for North Carolina’s 10th Congressional District.
David has been a resident of North Carolina for over 30 years and has been living in the 10th district for over 5 years. He has heard the call to public service:
“I am a husband and a father who is gravely troubled by the direction our nation is going and the legacy we are leaving for our children. I believe it is time I left the sidelines and help lead, for we are in a time of unprecedented crisis and our current leaders aren’t representing us. Too many people in our district are struggling with employment, access to healthcare, and quality education. We can do so much more together than apart.”
David is passionate about stopping climate change, stopping the erosion of our voting rights, and providing for the future of our nation with better access to quality education for its people.
In the days, weeks, and months to come, we’ll bring you more information on how you can help David and join him in our progressive vision to help the 10th District.
“The founder’s vision of America is unfortunately still out of reach for many in America. Langston Hughes wrote the poem “Let America Be America Again” in 1935 and it is still a powerful read today.
We need to complete the plan for America, to truly be the home where all can realize their inalienable rights – life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
