Chapel HIll elections

So where if anywhere are folks posting about local elections? This fall Orange-Chatham Sierra Club endorsed these candidates for Chapel Hill. Mayor: Pam Hemminger and Town Council at-Large: Sue Hunter, Tai Huynh, Michael Parker, Amy Ryan. Pam Hemminger is the incumbent running for reelection. She has worked on a number of environmental Issues. Michael Parker is an incumbent. I frequently saw him at the Moral Mondays marches in Raleigh. Amy Ryan has served on a number of town boards. Sue Hunter has been an advocate against domestic violence. Tai Huynh is a student at UNC and owner of a small startup in Chapel Hill.

Rep. Price and impeachement

I just received this announcement from David Price. Did anyone else?

I believe that the House of Representatives must move forward with an impeachment inquiry regarding the conduct of President Donald Trump.

This will build upon the investigations of the President’s grave offenses already underway, giving these inquiries focus and the maximum ability to obtain information in the face of the president’s stonewalling and resistance.

Getting news of Dave Thaden

Once again it sunk in how much I miss the Chapel Hill News and local newspapers. Today, Thursday, I was doing my shopping at Harris Teater on the senior discount day. Almost always I manage to see someone I know and share a bit of news. Today a friend told me Dave Thaden (assistant principal at Chapel Hill High School and principal East Chapel Hill High School) passed away last month. He was a great person, advocate and educator. Even though I follow Facebook, WCHL and the News and Observer I managed to miss seeing his obit. https://www.legacy.com/obituaries/newsobserver/obituary.aspx?n=david-tha... His memorial service is this Saturday for those who wish to attend.
