Municipal Elections

Lots and lots of meetings, forums

Four more interviews this week and a forum. I am looking forward to my interview with the AFL-CIO tomorrow. Then Saturday Morgan Cr./Kings Mill Neighborhood forum in the morning and Sierra Club interviews in the afternoon. At this rate, I will have met every Chapel Hill voter by the time the elections roll around... at least every one who is planning on voting.  There are so many interest groups and associations in our town! We really understand the power of working together.

What a wonderful town we live in!!! 

Initiation to Implementation: My first year in CH politics

A little over a year ago I attended a public meeting in the basement of the Chapel Hill Library. To be honest, I didn’t know what to expect. I hadn’t been to many public meetings and I hadn’t the slightest idea what the Comprehensive plan was or what in the world these folks were initiating. It ended up being the start of a very interesting year.

After all, I was attending that meeting solely to report back information to then recent UNC graduate Lee Storrow. 
During that spring, Lee had been appointed to the initiating committee and also decided to run for Chapel Hill Town Council. While the former was public, the latter was still mostly under wraps – most people in town had no idea who Lee Storrow was. Due to an unfortunate scheduling coincidence, Lee was unable to attend every meeting.

And so it begins... Filing officially starts today!
