Souls to the polls

It may be hard to think of a tax increase as "justice," but Orange County has an example of just that in its proposal on the November ballot to raise the sales tax by one-quarter cent. A portion of the revenue if this wins approval will go toward providing a solution for Habitat for Humanity homeowners in Efland (many of whose homes were built by our member churches), who have been facing a 300 percent increase in their sewer rates. Justice United agrees that this tax increase, which means paying 25 cents more per every $100 you spend, equals social justice.

We will gather at 9:30am at United Church.  After a brief press conference with our partner groups, we will walk over to the Seymour Center to cast our votes.

Justice United meeting last night

I went to the Justice United meeting last night - it was energizing. Congregations and citizens from all over Chapel Hill and Carrboro attended.  All were focused on the betterment of our community. Those of us in attendance who are running for public office committed to meeting for two hours with Justice United within 90 days of being elected, at their request.  Here is a link to a write-up on the meeting: http://www.newsobserver.com/news/local_state/story/159876.html.
