Thanks to the OP crew for such an excellent way to connect on the issues during this campaign season. Also thanks to Jacquie, Randee and Kurt for your thoughtflu ideas in this campaign and always. I am running to get re-elected because I love Carrboro and I believe that Carrboro has the capacity to serve as a role-model for other communities. We have the courage and sanity that is lacking in this time when at the state and federal levels things are looking dire and not responsive to the wellbeing of all living beings on this planet.

I see participation in local governance in a progressive town such as Carrboro as a way of being part of the larger movement that values bringing decisions and actions closest to those who bear the consequences.

Please let me know how you can support my campaign by going to this page and filling out this form:


I really appreciate Randee's putting the long-term solution for recycling as one of her top priorities. It's been very discouraging not to hear any discussion on the future relationship between the towns and the county in any of the two candidate forums I've attended.  

Thank you, Terri. Sally Greene and I have been working on keeping the conversation and planning for solid waste management and recycling at the forefront. Help stimulate conversation, press for plan and timeline.
