Orange County Justice United in Community Effort founding

After building relationships across faith, ethic background and economic status for almost three years, J.U.I.C.E. is ready to become a permanent organization. Leaders of the Committee have been patiently putting together the building blocks of collective power. They focused on recruiting institutions, raising their own money, traininghundreds of leaders, identifying priorities and developing a collective agenda.
The committee will become a permanent organization at a Founding Ceremony scheduled for the night of Monday October 26, 2009.  Hundreds of leaders from across the County have pledged to gather to officially launch the organization. The Founding Ceremony will coincide with an important election time in our County. All candidates seeking public office in the area will be invited to attend.Our organization never endorses any of the candidates, but we always ask the candidates to publicly endorse our community agenda.  
         Founding Ceremony:
  •     Monday October 26, 2009 at 7:00 PM. United Church of Chapel Hill 
    • The Founding is a celebration of our collective commitment for Justice. 
    • The organization will be launched by those that want to be Founding Members. Those that have completed training will be recognized, and we will unveil our new name and agenda.
    • Those seeking elected office will be invited to endorse or speak against our agenda

Bill Strom resigning!

As reported by Kirk Ross of the Carrboro Citizen on OP and on the CC site, Chapel Hill Town Councilmember Bill Strom has announced that he will be resigning as of August 1, and will be leaving the area.

The interesting political implication is that I think the Council will now be expected to appoint a replacement since this resignation did not happen within the 40-day window before an election candidate filing period which would have led to an automatic appointment of the 5th vote-getter.

Election 2009 - let's do this

Hey all! Thanks for doing such a great job of keeping the conversation going while I am jugging a new job and my newly expanded family!  With the municpal and city school board elections coming up, I want to make sure OP continues to be a key source of information for voters. In the past, our election section has carried nonpartisan candidate information, links to media guides, and listing of events.  On the new OP we can do much more.

Since we have a proper calendar now, folks can submit events directly, and we'll all be on top of the latest forums and candidate schmoozefests. We can also use the database power behind the site to make more useful candidate lists (I got halfway there with the 2008 candiate list last year), and maybe even some handy maps like those contributed in 2007.
