2016 Orange County Bond Referendum - For Schools Only?

This week's Indy Week features this article, documenting how affordable housing, parks, and senior services have so far been left out of the proposed 2016 Orange County bond referendum. 

I'm Running for Chapel Hill Town Council

Yesterday was a memorable day.  My wife Linda and I went to Hillsborough and I formally filed for the Chapel Hill Town Council. I’m in the race!

I am truly excited about the campaign ahead.  I intend to use it as an opportunity to meet and speak with as many Chapel Hill residents as I can. I want to learn firsthand what my fellow Chapel Hillians’ visions for our Town are. What they see as the opportunities we can take advantage of and what they see as the challenges that we need to address.  And what they expect from those who serve them on the Council.

Mapping the New Work on the Bolin Creek Greenway

Improvements and extensions to Bolin Creek Greenway have been in the works for years, and as Phase III of the project gets underway, the Town of Chapel Hill has released an interactive story map that will allow folks to track the project's progress. 

Who's announced their candidacy now?

We will update this thread with news of who is announcing their candidacy. Starting next week, we will launch our election coverage with detailed information as candidates file for Chapel Hill Town Council, Carrboro Board of Alderfolks, and Chapel Hill Carrboro City Schools Board of Education.

Filing runs from July 6th to July 17th, 2015.

Then on July 17th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm we hope you'll join us for the Candidate Coming Out Party and Happy Hour at DSI Comedy.
