Democratic Party Chair Wayne Goodwin was the keynote speaker and the 2017 class of the local party’s Hall of Fame – James Patrick Morgan, Christine Agnes Behrend, Grace Elizabeth McEntee, Percilla Sue Counts and Lonnie Webster – was inducted during the annual fundraiser.

Wayne Goodwin served four terms in the North Carolina House before being elected the Commissioner of Insurance in 2008. He was reelected in 2012. After being defeated for reelection in 2016, Goodwin ran for the chairmanship of the North Carolina Democratic Party and won on the first ballot with 92% of the vote.
