Mecklenburg County Commissioner Trevor Fuller, who is running for the US Senate in the 2020 election, was the speaker for the annual MLK Day breakfast Monday morning (Jan. 21st) at Hinton Memorial United Methodist Church.
Trevor Fuller, a Mecklenburg County Commissioner and candidate for the US Senate in the 2020 election, told those gathered for the annual MLK Day breakfast that Dr. Martin Luther King's message was 'love, vote and lead.'
Fuller, a Democrat who serves as an at-large member of the Mecklenburg commissioners, spoke before the breakfast sponsored by the Coalition of Churches.
While he will make a formal announcement at the Harvey Gantt Center in Charlotte Tuesday morning (Jan. 22nd) of his candidacy to oppose Thom Tillis in 2020, Fuller's intention to run has been known for some time. Ballotpedia already has him listed as a candidate.
Fuller told his audience that Dr. King's message was 'love your neighbors, vote, and lead if you're able.'
The breakfast was one of three events held in commemoration of MLK Day in Lincolnton. A youth program was held at the Lincoln Cultural Center, and the annual MLK Day march happened Monday afternoon.
