It’s another busy week for Orange County’s elected bodies. The Carrboro Alderfolks will consider Shelton Station after a celebratory bike ride, while the Chapel Hill Town Council will take public comment on Obey Creek. The Chapel Hill-Carrboro school board will review the district budget for the upcoming year, while its county counterpart will receive that district’s accreditation exit report.
The county commissioners will get an update on the transit plan and talk employee benefits for the upcoming fiscal year. The Hillsborough Town Board is on break this week
As you might have noticed for the past few days, the new OrangePolitics is here! We're excited to move forward into the next stage of OrangePolitics, and we hope you are, too.
With the launch of the new site design and structure, we're also interested in getting additional feedback from our readers on the content, coverage, and analysis we provide. To that end, we invite you to take our OrangePolitics reader survey.
Thanks so much to the Chapel Hill News for recognizing the good work of OrangePolitics and our recent leadership transition. Fortunately (or unfortunately, perhaps) the online version does not include my 1999 campaign headshot! Alert reader John Rees snapped a photo of it though.
OrangePolitics was never just me, even though some people like to see it that way. When I started this site over 10 years ago I had help setting up the software, and many friends posted entries regularly including local activists, newspaper columnists, and elected officials. There were always a few people I could count on to write some great blog posts, or help monitor the site for spam.
