Who's announced their candidacy now?

We will update this thread with news of who is announcing their candidacy. Starting next week, we will launch our election coverage with detailed information as candidates file for Chapel Hill Town Council, Carrboro Board of Alderfolks, and Chapel Hill Carrboro City Schools Board of Education.

Filing runs from July 6th to July 17th, 2015.

Then on July 17th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm we hope you'll join us for the Candidate Coming Out Party and Happy Hour at DSI Comedy.

Six Apply for Vacant Chapel Hill Town Council Seat

Wednesday marked the deadline for applying to be appointed to the Chapel Hill Town Council seat vacated by Matt Czajkowski when he resigned earlier this year.

Spanish radio election ads

Tonight I was listening to FM101.1 La Ley and heard two senate ads in Spanish back to back. The first was by Ben Carson PAC. The theme was that Hagan sends her kids to private school but opposes vouchers while Tillis gave vouchers to thousands of kids (hispanos). The second ad was by People for the American Way. The theme was that Tillis cut millions from education and health but gave rich Carolinians lots of tax breaks. VOTE! (This is my second attempt to post this, the first one didn't show up.)

It's Tuesday. VOTE!

Went to our precinct today -- haven't been there in quite some time, as we've so often opted for early voting. Wow. What a lonely exercise. It worries me. We went  in ... no voters there. Ran into one person coming in as we left. If you have't voted yet -- there's still a few minutes left!  VOTE!!!

Early voting calendar/ get out the vote

 As a candidate I have been trying to keep up with the new voting rules. Early voting starts on Oct. 17 but except for Sat. Nov. 2 is is only Mon.- Fri. and not on weekends. The Orange Politics calendar needs to be corrected. See http://www.co.orange.nc.us/elect/documents/onestopsites2013.pdf from the Orange County board of elections for details. Most of the new voting rules don't take place until next near but now is a good time to help everyone get a voter ID. We should have the goal of everyone obtaining their ID before the May 2014 primary.

Open Letter to Govenor McCrory

Dear Govenor McCrory:

Please pubically come out against Bill 589. And to veto the Bill. The bill takes away constitutional rights of people with disabilities, like me.
