For our second show with a candidate of 2015, The Social Spitball Show welcomes Ken Spaulding, Democratic candidate for Governor of North Carolina in 2016.
Kenneth B. Spaulding is a native of Durham, North Carolina and has served as a practicing attorney through his law office since 1970. He is a graduate of Howard University in Washington, DC. He received his Juris Doctor from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill, North Carolina in 1970. While there, Ken was the first minority to be elected as president of a first-year law class and became the first minority Honor Court Chief Justice.
In 1978, Spaulding was elected to the North Carolina House of Representatives where he served until 1984. While there, he introduced and helped secure passage of the state’s first Rape Victim Assistance Program. During his six years in the House of Representatives, he pushed for literacy achievement for adults throughout North Carolina. Another important accomplishment while in the North Carolina General Assembly, was that Ken introduced and helped pass legislation that finally allowed public housing residents the opportunity to serve and vote on local Housing Authority Boards.
During Spaulding's private sector career, he helped bring hundreds of millions of dollars of economic investment and development into North Carolina, along with thousands of jobs.
Spaulding is the son of Asa T. Spaulding, Sr., former President of North Carolina Mutual Life Insurance Company and Elna Spaulding, Durham’s first woman and African American woman County Commissioner. Spaulding and his wife Wendy, reside in Durham, North Carolina. Together they have five children.
Spaulding, "The People's Candidate for Governor," was the first Democratic candidate in the race, running since 2013.
Barbara & I look forward to it! Let's get the conversation going...
Please listen in as Maurita Miller, a foster parent from North Carolina and founder of In Our Shoes Inc., describes her experience with her youth who "aged-out" of foster care. She describes how she was told "if she kept a youth who emancipated form foster care in her home, the other foster youth in her home would be placed into a different home." She also poses several important questions, such as:
- If we are going to extend foster care to 21, what are we going to change about the system? Are we going to just prolong what happens to young adults at age 18 to when they are 21?
- What are we doing to help insure that youth are not going straight into homeless shelters or the judicial system, because they do not have a place to stay after they emancipate?
- How are we going to increase normalcy for teens in foster care (hanging out with friends, first hand learning experiences, driving education, etc.)?
Please comment with your thoughts below

"I have stood up to the president and my party when it's right for North Carolina, noting she supports building the Keystone XL pipeline and has opposed trade deals sought by the administration.Tillis was quoted as saying at a state Republican convention in 2011 that members of a state teachers' association don't care about children or classrooms — only about jobs and pensions. Hagan told the TV audience accusing Tillis of cutting education by $500 million and giving tax breaks to wealthy individuals while leading the North Carolina House. "And his priorities even speak louder than his words."
Tillis recalled Hagan's comments from her successful 2008 campaign, when she criticized GOP incumbent Elizabeth Dole for having voted 92 percent of the time with then-President George W. Bush. And yet, he said, Hagan has sided with Obama 95 percent. "Kay 1.0, Kay 2.0," he said unflatteringly, adding, "At the end of the day we need to say what we mean." http://www.newsobserver

Attorney Sarah Avraham and writer Bennet Pomerantz discuss the subjects of the day.
The audience should know that although Ms. Avraham is a licensed attorney, she is not offering legal advice in any capacity, is not establishing an attorney/client relationship with anyone listening to the show, and recommends that any listener of the show consult a local attorney for any legal advice they may require.
This show is about us discussing hot topics and how they relate to the law. Despite opposition from a wide range of groups (AARP, veterans, journalists, and animal welfare advocates to name a new), North Carolina lawmakers have overriden the governor’s veto of a bill that allows businesses to sue employees who expose what happens on the job, even if it what they are exposing is illegal. Why are bills like this making their way across the country? What does this mean for the “everyman”? Tune in to hear our hosts answer these and other questions on this issue.
