Northside Element

North Side School

  Yesterday I over heard an open conversation at Chapel Hill Inspection Department concerning Northside Element School. Three men were explaining to a Town employee why their company Bordeaux Construction should be allowed to circumvent town standard and requirements. The Town employee while quit pleasant was clear that was not to be the case. One of the three from Bordeaux Construction hinted to some use of power to force the Town staffer to renege.  These veiled threats did not the effect the staffers resolve that the project would need to meet the Town policies.

Saw a local developer reading about this opinion on his smartphone yesterday. Impact on our development processes?

Municipal Election Filing Nears: Potential Candidates for Chapel Hill Carrboro City Schools Board of Education

As Travis notes in his post on the upcoming election for Chapel Hill Town Council, the filing period to run for the Chapel Hill Carrboro City Schools Board of Education also begins on July 5th.

Three incumbents are up for re-election: James Barrett, Michelle Brownstein, and Greg McElveen

James Barrett was elected to a two-year seat in 2011. He intends to run for re-election.

Michelle Brownstein was first elected to the CHCCS Board in 2009. She is currently Board Chair. She also intends to run for re-election.

Greg McElveen was appointed to fill Pam Hemminger's seat when Pam was elected to the Orange County Board of County Commissioners in 2008. He was elected to the seat in 2009. Greg will not be seeking re-election.

This leaves one seat open. There are no known challengers at this point.
