There are 4 local District Court Judge races. Only Democrats are on the ballot. Two have no competition (Beverly A. Scarlett and Jay Bryan). On the ballot Sherri Murrell has competition (Lunsford Long) but Judge Long has withdrawn from the race but is still on the ballot. Logically everyone should vote for Murrell because if she doesn't win, the current governor could appoint to the future vacancy created by Long. The only real contested race is between Samantha Cabe and Sam Cooper. Tomorrow 9/29/16 there is another forum for the district judges sponsored by Orange Democrats.
REMINDER: District Court Judicial Candidates Forum

I just noticed this item on Council's agenda for next week. This allows more money to be donated to local candidates. Subject: Adjust Municipal Campaign Contributions and Disclosure Limits as Required by Ordinance
Staff: Roger L. Stancil Ralph D. Karpinos
Department: Town Manager Town Attorney
Overview: Chapter 2, Article IV of the Town Code limits the amount of money that an individual or a political committee can contribute to a Mayor or Town Council candidate’s campaign. The Ordinance also establishes a maximum contribution that can be made without disclosing the contributor’s name in municipal campaign reports. Ordinance Section 2-73 requires that these amounts be adjusted during even-numbered years and provides criteria for making these adjustments based on changes in the Consumer Price Index (CPI) since 2009 and number of Town of Chapel Hill registered voters.
The Town established campaign contribution limits in 1999 pursuant to special legislation enacted by the General Assembly.
Margaret and I were at the Latin American Festival on Weaver St. in Carrboro. (It ends at 7PM tonight 8/28). The crowd was relatively small. Lots of great music and dance and food. (We had the Salvadoran dish of pupusas.) El Centro Hispano was registering voters and folks from Deborah Ross for Senate were passing out stickers and collecting addresses for her campaign.
