Go do it!!!


Joe Phelps and the Realtors

Last week the upstanding Greater Chapel Hill Association of Realtors* announced they were endorsing realtor Joe Phelps for at-large County Commissioner (as well as farmer Earl McKee in district 2). How in-depth was the research behind this endorsement? They didn't even look at the other candidates.

The association said neither Jacobs nor Broun approached them about an endorsement.

“If we had been, we would have met with them and listened to their views,” Zimmerman said.

The most important endorsement...

...YOURS! You regulars know the drill: this is a special rules thread. Only write about who you are voting for (or would be if you lived in their district) and why you support them.  

Other topics and criticism of candidates is welcome on other posts, see http://www.orangepolitics.org/issue/elections/2010.

The final countdown

The Primary Election is in one week! (What a great time for a statewide news network to stop reporting and start begging, eh?)  Early voting is still on until Saturday at 1pm at the Board of Elections office in Hillsborough and at the Planetarium on UNC's campus. Remember: you can REGISTER and VOTE in one swell foop only if you vote early, and you can do it in either location. If you vote on Election Day (Tuesday, May 4) you have to do it at the site for the precinct where you are registered. (Check out a sample ballot.)

In Orange County, we'll be selecting members of the County School Board (not city schools, only county) and making partisan nominations for County Commissioner, County Sheriff, State Legislative seats. We'll also be joining the rest of state state in nominating candidates for U.S. Senate and Court of Appeals Judges, but the difference is that the winners of the Democratic Party primary in Orange County will be over the hump, whereas the battle for the Senate will be just beginning. 

Here are some of the resources we've put together on OrangePolitics this year to share information about the candidates...

Is Donna Coffey an Orange County School Board progressive candidate?

I know there has not been a lot of talk about the Orange County School Board Race but....  

Does anyone know what is going on with Donna Coffey?  I see that she got the endorsement by the INDY, but she is also getting the endorsement from the Orange County Republican Party as “the conservative candidate”, in fact they had a meeting 2 Saturday’s ago (17th) at the Cedar Grove Ruritan Club to Introduce her….

You can't be a Progressive Candidate if you’re endorsed by the Orange County GOP as “The Conservative Candidate”!
