NCDP Chair Patsy Keever Congratulates Chris Sgro on Appointment to General Assembly

RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina Democratic Party Chairwoman Patsy Keever today congratulated Equality NC Executive Director Chris Sgro on his appointment to fill Ralph Johnson’s unexpired term as a member of the North Carolina House of Representatives from District 58. Sgro was appointed earlier today by the Guilford County Democratic Party after Johnson’s death last month.

“Chris Sgro is an excellent choice for this seat, and I know he’ll do a great job working for all North Carolinians in the upcoming legislative session,” said Keever. “As a strong and vocal advocate for the LGBT community, Chris has the experience and the skills to continue our fight against HB2, Gov. McCrory’s discriminatory, job-killing law.”
