Write in candidate for School Board

 I attended the meet and greet forum for school board candidates at the library tonight. Two arrived late. Also Al Baldwin spoke. He is a retired school teacher (we both worked at Chapel Hill High School and he also worked at East CHHS). He announced he is running as a write in candidate because he is very disturbed about what is happening to teachers in the district. He noted that many are afraid to speak up about concerns that they have about education at their schools and in the district.  I look forward to hearing more from him.

Chapel Hill Population

The PPP survey asked folks what the ideal population would be in 25 years. According to the town and US census data it is projected to be about 83,000. Zero percent picked that range (81 to 90,000) and only 5% picked a higer population level. "Chapel Hill’s current population is about 60,000. 30,000 to 40,000 5% ............................................. 41,000 to 50,000 12% ............................................. 51,000 to 60,000 22% ............................................. 61,000 to 70,000 28% ............................................. 71,000 to 80,000 13% ............................................. 81,000 to 90,000 0% ............................................. 91,000 to 100,000 5% ........................................... More than 100,000 0% .......................................... Not sure 15% " I guess we (if I last 35 more years) will be living in less than ideal conditions.

Bad state legislation messing up local environment

A friend shared this. It is really tough to protect our local environment with bad state bills.

The time to stop HB 765, the Polluter Protection Act, is now.

Conservation Action: Stop the Polluter Protection Act!

The big environmental fight surely looming over the remainder of this legislative year deals with HB 765, now better known as the Polluter Protection Act.

Chapel Hill Polling

I was just contacted by PPP and asked about candidates and development issues. Was anyone else called?

sidewalk safety

After reading this in the Nicaragua News I has to share this. I do think the sidewalks are better here than in Managua but a number of intersections lack safe, easy ways to cross.
