C.A.N. Forum

Until I get a proper calendar of events thing on here, we'll post campaign events under the "Elections" topic.

The Community Action Network will hold a candidate forum on Wednesday, October 1, at Chapel Hill Town Hall. (Recently changed from September 30 due to a conflict.) The schedule for the evening is:

7:00 -- Chapel Hill-Carrboro Board of Education
8:10 -- Carrboro Mayor and Board of Aldermen
9:20 -- Chapel Hill Mayor and Town Council

It will also be cablecast on Time-Warner Channel 18.

For more information, contact Nancy Gabriel at nancygabriel@mindspring.com or 967-8443.

Are we safe yet?

The Chapel Hill Herald reports that the Town's red light camera program, instituted almost a month ago, has brought in $2 to the Town and $48 to Affiliated Computer Systems, the company that runs the program. That is to say one person has been caught running a light and paid the $50. There was no community outcry about the scourge of red-light-runners before this program was instituted. It was sold as a revenue producer for the town.

This 12-page letter from Chapel Hill resident Will Raymond (PDF) highlights many of the problems with red light cameras. The Town has requested a response from ACS.
