One of the goals of EMPAC, the political action arm of the State Employees Association of North Carolina (SEANC), is to encourage SEANC members to continue their public service by running for office. Dorian Palmer, a member of SEANC District 5, is a young, energetic candidate for Burke County Commissioner who works for the Department of Public Safety. He has been active in the community and aspires to be a fresh voice for Burke County. EMPAC has voted to support his candidacy and endorse Dorian Palmer for Burke County Commissioner. -Mark Dearmon, State Chair, EMPAC


"We, the Executive Board of The North Carolina Association of Teen Democrats, endorse Dorian Palmer for Burke County Commissioner. The board first met Mr. Palmer at our Winter Summit. He enthusiastically went out of his way to support NCATD and continues to do so. Mr. Palmer has shown himself to be a dedicated and tireless public servant and someone who truly cares about his community. It is an absolute honor to endorse Mr. Palmer’s campaign." -NCATD

Endorse Dorian

I am trying to flip a seat in the long-held republican Burke County Board of Commissioners, and I can’t do it without you. Would you be willing to join the growing list of elected officials, state and community advocacy groups, and community leaders that have vocalized their support for my campaign?
