Pittsboro Mayor Wants To Be NC Democrats' Leader

Pittsboro's Mayor says he's running to become North Carolina Democratic Party chairman because he believes party activities in his home county can be imitated to build the Democratic brand statewide from the ground up.

Randy Voller formally announced his candidacy Friday in front of the state party headquarters building in Raleigh. Voller has been mayor since 2005 and became Chatham County Democratic Party chairman two years ago.

Voller said Democratic candidates performed well in Chatham County in last month's election thanks to strong local party interaction with voters and fundraising.

Voller wants to succeed Chairman David Parker, who announced earlier this week he wouldn't seek another two-year term when party activists meet Feb. 2 in Durham.

Outgoing state Sen. Eric Mansfield of Fayetteville says he's also strongly considering running.
