Friday Fellows in the November 2018 election
Wednesday, November 7, 2018
Congratulations to all Friday Fellowship graduates who chose a public path of service and leadership in the November 2018 election cycle. While official results will be certified in the coming weeks, it appears six Friday Fellows were elected to office in the November 2018 election. Campaigning and service in elected office are heavy demands that test a person’s ability to continually demonstrate integrity, intention, and inclusion. The Fellowship community both celebrates successes and provides a space for support and reflection.
Jay Chaudhuri Class of 2001 NC State Senate
15th NC Senate District which covers portions of central and eastern Wake County
Satana Deberry Class of 1999 District Attorney
16th Prosecutorial District which covers all of Durham County
Christine Kushner Class of 2003 Wake County Board of Education

Chaudhuri, Kushner, Meyer, and Sutton were re-elected as incumbents although some areas represented may have changed due to redistricting. Deberry and Lofton have been elected for the first time to their respective offices. NC Senate and NC House members serve two year terms. District Attorneys are elected to four year terms.
No matter the time in an electoral cycle, Bill Friday’s advice on listening is always sound.
