Candidates state and federal officices 22

So I am receiving  lots of announcements from candidates for local house and senate seats and for US Congress. David and Verla said they were not running for reelection. Anyone else not running? Who else is running? And of course, Happy Thanksgiving.

november local elections

So only one incumbent running for Chapel Hill Town Council and none for school board.


Library openings

UNC libraries continue to be closed. You can order books online and pick them up at Davis. (The web portal is a pain.) But Orange County and Chapel Hill Libraries are opening this month. Time to browse and read!



Local 2021 elections

Our elections were not pushed back by the state legislature and will still be held in November. Filing dates are a month earlier than when I ran for Chapel Hill Town Council in 2013. This year filing dates with Orange County Board of Elections are 7/2 tp 7/16/21. Filing fee ranges from $5 to $15. Make sure you have your political finance committee set up and be ready to make reports by the time you file. Good luck.

I was glad to learn our congressman voiced his concern about the upcoming elections in El Salvador. There has been violence against some of the opposition parties including FMLN. Years ago many of us were active in CITCA and helped after Hurricane Mitch 20 plus years ago. Just this pass year there were to major hurricanes in Honduras again.

The February 24 letter to Secretary Blinken, signed by Jimmy Panetta (D-CA), James McGovern (D-MA), Raúl Grijalva (D-AZ), Jim Costa (D-CA), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Mark Pocan (D-WI), David Price (D-NC), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), Salud Carbajal (D-CA), Henry “Hank” Johnson (D-GA), David Trone (D-MD), Jesús “Chuy” Garcia (D-IL), Anna Eshoo (D-CA), Thomas Suozzi (D-NY), Jamie Raskin (D-MD), was the latest in a stream of critiques from Congress.
