Linda Coleman

North Carolina District 02

Linda Coleman has an extensive history of public service and a record of standing up for the marginalized in the state of North Carolina.  

As the former Chair of the Wake County Board of Commissioners, a three term member of the State House of Representatives and the Director of the Office of State Personnel, Coleman knows the challenges facing the people of North Carolina and understands that with proper leadership the middle class can not only survive but thrive.  Her unbought and unbossed leadership and commitment to expanding the middle class was proven early on in her career when, as a freshman State Representative, she held up the state budget to ensure that the hardworking state employees of North Carolina received a raise.

A proven progressive, Coleman has been a staunch advocate for women’s reproductive justice, properly funded public schools and voter protections.  She is committed to providing the people of North Carolina opportunities to build a vibrant economy with a strong middle class as its backbone.

Urgency and Optimism: Chisholm's Legacy and the Status of Black Women in American Politics Today
By Glynda C. Carr & Kelly Dittmar, Ph.D.

Today would have marked the 91st birthday of an American trailblazer. Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm (D-NY) approached public service with unmatched zeal and urgency. She became the first Black woman elected to the U.S. Congress in 1968, and the first Black person and first woman to win delegate votes at a major party presidential convention in 1972.
