Information about Hampton Dellinger for Lieutenant Governor

Hello Folks,

My name is Nick Auten. I am a Carrboro resident and am a volunteer for the Hampton Dellinger Lieutenant Gubernatorial campaign in Orange County. Today, many of us will have our precinct meetings that will kick off our collective preparation for the 2008 Primaries on May 6th. I am very excited and optimistic for the advancement of progressive policies at a federal, state, and local level this election cycle!

We have some good Democratic candidates to choose from for the Lt. Governor's race. I would like to give you some weblinks that have some content about Hampton Dellinger for you to read and also tell you about some organizations that feel the same way that I do about his candidacy: that Hampton Dellinger is the most electable progressive on the ticket.

The Orange County Ticket?

I was thinking the other day about the possibility, albeit slim, that come primary-time in May I'd have the ability to vote for a full slate of folks who live within five or ten miles of my front door. I won't say that any of these would have been my natural choice, but I'm assuming that even with his campaign in suspension, Edwards will still be on the ballot for president; Chapel Hillians Jim Neal and David Price could snatch my votes for Senate and House; at least in theory I could vote for Chapel Hill resident Bev Purdue for governor; and let's not forget lieutenant governor candidate Hampton Dellinger, who grew up in town though he's since fled to Durham.

Presidents, Politics and Power: American Presidents Who Shaped the 20th Century

The Carrboro Cybrary and Carrboro Recreation & Parks present “Presidents, Politics & Power: American Presidents Who Shaped the 20th Century.” Each week we will be viewing a film that provides a presidential biography and opens up a discussion of our nation’s leaders.  The presidents included in the series are: Teddy Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Harry Truman, Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan.  Following each film, Dr. David Zonderman, a history professor at NC State, will lead us in discussion and answer questions.  You can pick up a packet of short essays at the Cybrary that will help inform the discussion.  Come learn about the impact of past presidents before voting in a new one this year.  This program is made possible in part by a grant from the North Carolina Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Preview the series by viewing the first video online via NC Live!  Log in to NC Live from the Cybrary’s website and go to the new NC Live Media Collection.  Click on TR: The Story of Theodore Roosevelt, Parts 1 & 2. Then, come join us in the Century Center for another viewing and discussion on Monday, January 28th.

Will Libertarians Become the Opposition in the OC

Over the past 9 years, I find the basically progressive vibe in Chapel Hill refreshing. I spent most of my life in an ultra-conservative suburb of Richmond, VA that considered Ronald Reagan a little bit of a lefty. However, the lack of an opposition in the OC is becoming a bit of problem. We have to fight amongst ourselves to even get our blood pressure up. At least Jesse Helms would complain about us from time to time, but sadly Elizabeth Dole is no "Senator No. "

This cannot go on forever. Someone has to step up and make ridiculous complaints about our high standard of living, basically harmonious relationships between the races, excellent school system and Free Public Transportation. My biggest problems with the Town are that there aren't enough right turn lanes and the sidewalks need to be extended in places.

Enter the Libertarians
