Friends of Downtown Chapel Hill Candidate Forum

Yesterday, the Friends of Downtown gathered in the Franklin Hotel for the first candidate forum of this municipal election season. All candidates for Chapel Hill Town Council, except for Jonathan Riehl, were present, as was Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt.

The forum allowed for an opening statement from each candidate, a question from the moderator, and then a follow-up question from the audience. In case you weren't able to attend, below is a Storify recapping the tweets from the event.

Obviously I offer my apologies if I inaccurately paraphrased anyone - there was a lot said to condense to 140 characters per statement!

Just to clarify: i did not say  CH government alone has the expertise to fix the flooding problem. i said the  people of CH, engaging the best engineering minds of our community and expertise of the universities can come up with solutions.
