We elect legislators to represent our best interests in the General Assembly. Voters elected Tricia Cotham to NC House District 112 based on her stated values as a Democrat and champion of abortion rights, gun reform, and LGTBQ+ rights. Rep. Cotham betrayed the trust of her constituents and officially switched parties to become a Republican.
By changing parties just a few months after her election, Cotham has sold out not only her constituents in the Charlotte area but also North Carolinians around the state who stand for fairness and justice.
Let’s let Tricia Cotham know that she has betrayed the community that worked hard to get her elected, her constituents to whom she made false promises, and all North Carolinians who stand to lose so much from her deceit. Since she can no longer be trusted to fairly represent her district, she should resign immediately.
