Women for Neal -- NEW TIME

From Emily Batchelder (, with the Neal campaign:


Hey y'all,
Just a final reminder that the Women for Neal Meet & Greet is this Tuesday, March 18th from 7-9pm at the Station at Southern Rail in downtown Carrboro (see below for details and directions). Out of respect for Eve Carson's memorial service, and to accommodate those wishing to attend, we've pushed our event back an hour to begin at 7pm.
I've tried to incorporate as many of your issues as possible into the agenda for Jim and I hope he has a chance to speak with you about all of them, but please understand that in the interest of time, we've primarily stuck to issues surrounding reproductive health and rights.
Also, please note that all ages are welcome to attend, those purchasing alcoholic beverages will only be carded at the bar. I also ask that in order to facilitate everyone comfortably, you please RSVP by replying to this email with approximately how many guests you will be attending with. Also, I know a lot of you forwarded this email on (thank you, thank you, thank you!), so could you please forward this email with the time change along, as well?
I still welcome any questions or concerns you may have and look forward to seeing you all there!
Thanks so much!

Sierra Club County Commissioner Forum

It's that time of year again, the sweet smell of campaigns are starting to fill the air. The Sierra Club will be hosting a forum on environmental issues for Orange County Commissioner candidates on Monday, March 17th at 7pm in Carrboro Town Hall. Members of the public are invited to attend, though it will be televised if you are unable to make it.

Because I get a number of questions regarding the process the Sierra Club takes to endorse local candidates, I wanted to explain exactly what it is we do to make our decisions. Rather than put you to sleep with a long written explanation, I took to my webcam and tried to describe the process as best I could. Enjoy by clicking "read more" below.
