Meet Ollie Nelson
Hello, my name is Ollie Nelson. Hello Sir, My name is Rev. Dr. Ollie O. Nelson. I am a former Marine and retired educator. I would like to be considered for the late Congressman Walter Jones' congressional position, representing the state's 3rd District, As a registered Democrat, I am acutely aware of the process of you scheduling a special election to decide who will complete the late Representative Jones' two-year term, and that state law requires the schedule include primary races as well in the GOP-leaning district. As a former community organizer for former President Barrack Obama, I was instrumental in facilitating grassroots mobilization. As an educator and former Marine, I have embodiment the true meaning of a "public servant," I have a tireless record of at-risk youth advocacy for the following states: Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, and the District of Columbia. I do believe that my political beliefs are in line with local, state, and federal democratic agenda. As a future public servant, I will always strive to uphold the duties and responsibilities which I have been sworn to uphold under the Constitution of the United States. My educational and professional background has allowed me to be determined, enthusiastic and energetic in accomplishing any agenda. As a trusted representative, I will always do what is in the best interest of my constituents, my district, and my country. I will always follow my convictions, no matter the political cost. As this letter goes out, I am sending the North Carolina Board of Elections a formal letter of declaration for my candidacy for the remaining two years of the late Congressman Walter Jones's term, representing the state's 3rd District.
