It should be an interesting election season here in Chapel Hill because with a Chapel Hill Town  council to choose. I wonder who I NEVER HEARD OF YA POLITICAL IDIOTS WILL VOTE FOR SINCE THEY ARE TOO LAZY TO READ ABOUT  WHO IS RUNNING AND WHO THEY ARE RUNNING AGAINST. by 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
