2016 election

The Candidates Respond: Why Are People Poor?

We asked the nine candidates for Orange County Board of Commissioners to answer five questions, and all provided responses. On each the next five Mondays, we will post the responses to one question. We begin today with the first question: Why are people poor? What tools or programs is the county using and/or should the county use to address poverty?

March 15th Vote Matters Locally

Casting a vote in North Carolina’s presidential primary that might actually make a difference this year is a good reason to get to the polls on March 15th, but you can’t just stop there.

Choosing party nominees for a number of statewide races to be decided in November is one thing, but for the Orange County Board of Commissioners races this year, the Democratic primary is the competitive election that matters, as no Republicans filed to run.
