Seven Questions for the Register of Deeds Candidates

This election year, Orange County voters will select a register of deeds from 3 candidates: Deborah Brooks, the current register of deeds; Mark Chilton, former mayor of Carrboro; and Sara Stephens, former deputy register of deeds. The register of deeds is the custodian of many of the county’s public records, including those relating to births, deaths, military discharges, marriage, and property transfers.

In lieu of holding a candidate forum for the register of deeds race, we sent the candidates 7 questions and asked them to respond to each question in 200 words or less. The answers we received from them appear below. They have not been edited in any way.

NC against H8

I couldn't find any events in NC, so I'm making one.

If anyone is nearby and has 8 minutes to spare, I'm going down to the Court House (symbolic right?) in down town Chapel Hill across from the university. I figure the most open minded part of this state has to have some kind of event.

I've still got my sign from the November protests, and I've got some equality NC brochures that we could pass out. I'm going even if I have to stand alone. Its a little muggy, but I think the rain has cleared up. If there are any other North Carolinians who want to stand with our family & friends & allies in California, then feel free to meet me down their at 8.

Its a work night for me, gotta be up at 5:00 am, so I can't stay down there long, but I think we can at least muster this symbolic gesture for our allies in California.

One Man. One Woman. Thats Marriage?

One man. One woman. That’s marriage.

This is the tagline of the conservative North Carolina organization called NC4marrige. They are trying to pass the Defense of Marriage Act, which would protect marriage under the state constitution, making it harder to legalize same-sex marriage in the future. North Carolina is the only southern state that doesn’t have a constitutional same-sex marriage ban in place, which makes it a target for conservative activists and same-sex marriage advocates alike. Basically, these groups tell their supporters that North Carolina could become the next state to legalize gay marriage unless it becomes banned under the constitution.

Advocates for Youth opposes the bill, saying:
