Area citizens will have the opportunity to hear a debate between two Democratic candidates running for the 23rd District N.C. Senate seat on Wednesday, April 9. Incumbent N.C. Senator, Ellie Kinnaird, and Orange County commissioner, Moses Carey Jr., are running for the seat in the Democratic Primary, which will be decided on May 6.

EmPOWERment, Inc., the League of Women Voters and the Chapel Hill-Carrboro Chamber of Commerce have teamed up to host the debate. These organizations are partnering to provide a forum for the community to hear the candidates’ stance on policy issues and their vision for Orange and Person Counties.

Kinnaird was re-elected in November 2006 and is currently serving her sixth term in the N.C. Senate. In 1987 she was elected as mayor of Carrboro and served four terms in that position.

Carey was elected to the Orange County Board of County Commissioners in 1984 and is currently serving in his sixth term. He has served as chairman for eleven non-consecutive years.

The debate will be at 7 p.m. in the Council Chamber at the Chapel Hill Town Hall located at 405 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Debate questions will be generated by the Daily Tar Heel, Chapel Hill News, Chapel Hill Herald and Carrboro Citizen. 1360 WCHL will be broadcasting and moderating the debate.
