For Immediate Release

MORE FORMER ELECTED OFFICIALS AND ORGANIZATIONS ENDORSE DISTRICT ATTORNEY SPENCER MERRIWEATHER
 
Charlotte, NC, April 9 - Former Charlotte Mayor Harvey Gantt, former Charlotte City Councilman Ron Leeper, the Southern Piedmont Central Labor Council (AFL-CIO), and the Black Political Caucus of Charlotte Mecklenburg endorsed Spencer Merriweather for District Attorney!

The announcements capped a whirlwind two weeks in which Merriweather was also named a Charlotte Business Journal's 2018 40 Under 40 Award winner, and he went head-to-head against his opponent in two debates.

Black Political Caucus members had a chance to see both candidates, and more than 90% of caucus members voted to endorse Merriweather's campaign on Sunday.

People across Charlotte and Mecklenburg County are joining his team because he will always conduct the business of the District Attorney's office with an unwavering eye toward integrity, equity, and justice.

The endorsement list, which is updated regularly, is available on the campaign website.
