"Serving The Community" Crystal Simenton Banner Editor Alma Adams, director and professor of the Humanities division is running for the NC House of Representatives 26th district. Adams, who is temporarily holding the seat, will be one of the many candidates to vote on in the Nov. 8 .Election. Currently cam paigning, Adams says that the efforts she put forth is meaning less if people don’t vote. She says many black people, students espe cially, rarely vote. “A large majority of blacks don’t vote,” Adams said. “Black students need to under stand that voting is something that has not always been a right” Some students voters are reg istered in Greensboro but many are registered in their hometowns. Adams says that registration is no good if it is not utilizes. “Y our registration should move with you when you move. If the move is temporary you are still living in that community during that time period the decisions made may affect you,”Adams said. “It takes three minutes to register," Adams said. "Registration without voting is nothing.” Being a graduate of A&T State University, Adams speaks to A&T students frequently about the im portance of voting. “I make special efforts to get to A&T,” Adams said. “They have a terrible voting record. They don’t realize that politics im pacts them on a day to day basis. “ “For example, if elected one of my major concerns is education,” Adams said. “I would like to see the legislation become more involved in Black colleges because when it comes to money we never get our fair share.” Adams believes that vot ing is a right that should always be exercised. “Every decision that is made for and about you, with or without you, is a political decision. You can choose to become involved or be eliminated,” Adams said. G&S ASSOCIATES SUITE 1504 EAST MARKET ST. GREENSBORO, NORTH CAROLINA 27401 JAMES K.
