to rachel and carl c ya after the 1st. Gary Kahn

school board filing will reopen (likely October 2-6) on account of Streater resignation outside of the 40 day window set by a 1975 local act.  Ballot will say "vote for not more than 4" and 4th place finisher gets a 2-year term. There are school board forums sept 23 and 27 which may be impacted 

i just tweeeted today  that a WEGMANS that just opened in NJ attracted  over 20 000 shoppers see that chapel hill

CHCAE (which is the Ch/C Association of Educators, btw. Local branch of the NEA) had to be moved to 10/26.  I assume Town Hall, but haven't seen an official invite yet. 

Thanks James, I've updated the list.

Hi all, here are my endorsements if you care, CHTC  Carl Schuler, Rachel Schaevitz, Ed Harrison, and Gary Kahn {write in}


Forum will be held at the Friday Center on 10/26
