Endorsement Thread 2014: Who Are You Voting For?

As of 9am today, early voting in the May 2014 primary election is underway. That means it's time for the annual OrangePolitics endorsement thread where we ask you, if you feel so inclined, to share with the community who you are voting for (or would vote for) and why.

Here is our list of all of the candidates with links to their websites and social media. You can also review all the information about this year's races that we have here on OP, including:

As always, this is a special-rules post. The rules: Only write who you're voting for (and why, if you like). You may also list the people you would vote for if you lived in their districts. Do not refer in any way to to any candidates you are not supporting. If you don't follow the rules, your comment will be removed. You're free to critique the candidates through comments on other posts or by posting your own blog entry. In fact, you're warmly invited to do so!

Hintz endorsed by NC AFL-CIO

I'm happy to report that after completing the interview process I was endorsed by the Triangle Central Labor Council and the NC State AFL-CIO.  Historically one of the best ways to raise average income is to have more of the labor force unionized. As a Council Member I want to make sure that town employees receive a fair wage and that disputes are settled fairly. North Carolina prohibits public employees from engaging in collective bargaining however it is important for the town to listen to employees and learn from their experiences in doing their job.
