On Thursday March 25, 2010, The Jeff Doctor for Congress Committee along with Guest Host Steve Smith of the Carolina Panthers threw the official Campaign Kickoff Dinner at the stunning Aloft Hotel in Uptown Charlotte. The night was a complete success, attended by enthusiastic 9th district voters and supporters of Jeff Doctor’s campaign.
Steve Smith took the podium first to speak about how he and Jeff first met and how their friendship has remained strong over the years. He then introduced Jeff Doctor, who took the stand to give an emotional, heartfelt account of how his father’s hard work and perseverance made Jeff the man he is today. He spoke about the kind of change that is desperately needed in the 9th district and how he can draw on his strengths to bring about that change. The official announcement of his candidacy for North Carolina’s 9th district was met with cheers and applause.
Guests enjoyed BBQ and had the opportunity to voice their ideas and concerns to Jeff Doctor face-to-face. Thank you to Steve Smith for graciously donating autographed footballs for the event!
