Hello,

I'd like to reach out to any of you Kossacks from North Carolina's 10th Congressional District or at least in the Central and Western part of North Carolina for information.  If any of you not from the area but in North Carolina and know the 10th Congressional District well, feel free to add your understanding of the communities, issues, etc.  

This isn't going to be much of a diary.  You can add anything you want about the 10th Congressional District.  Keep in mind this diary is just for information purposes.  Let's not get too carried away with whether or not any of these Knowledge Democrats information gathering diaries mean the Congressional districts in questions are winnable by Democrats or not.  Were here to assess districts across the country, no matter how "deep reed" or "red" they are.

What issues directly affect people in Central and Western North Carolina in general, and in the 1st district specifically?  My colleague Augustin and I are working on the Knowledge Democrats project and I've started working on a wiki page for North Carolina's 10th congressional district in order to assist in our long term efforts to promote progressive candidates in that district, whether at the local, state or federal level.  We understand North Carolina's 10th Congressional District may be conservative but we're still looking to reach out to any Kossacks, Democrats or progressives in the area.  It helps for long-term planning.

We do know for now that Patrick McHenry, the current Congressman representing the district, is a young Republican type who was hired by Karl Rove in 2000 to be the National Coalition Director of then-Texas Governor George W. Bush's presidential campaign.

Also, taking politics out of the equation, let others know if you've been to the 10th Congressional District and can point out some good restaurants, venues and places to spend time in there.

So far, I only have the basic information. What issues should be documented? What important links / articles / information should be added to the wiki page?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
