Many thanks to the Battle-Anderson-Thorpe-Chapman Breakfast Club for their endorsement of my re-election campaign. The Breakfast Club offers endorsements in local elections to support candidates who will consistently advocate for social justice.
Hank Anderson, who served as a Carrboro alderman from 1993 to 1998, founded the Breakfast Club in 1976 as a regular breakfast meeting at Mama Dip’s Kitchen for local African American and social justice community leaders. Anderson was the first African American department head for the Town of Chapel Hill, leading the town’s parks and recreation department for nearly 30 years.
I am honored to have the endorsement of this group of community leaders who work to carry on the legacy of local icons Fred Battle, Hank Anderson, Bill Thorpe, and Yonni Chapman.
Early voting: October 16-November 1

I am honored to receive the endorsements of both Equality North Carolina and the Victory Fund for my re-election campaign. As one of a small number of openly LGBTQ elected officials in North Carolina, I take seriously my responsibility to support my fellow LGBTQ North Carolinians and to show up for them whenever I can. Advocacy and support of LGBTQ people in Carrboro and all of North Carolina is one of my passions and has motivated much of my work both as an elected official and in other roles.
I’m proud to join in Carrboro’s tradition of leading the way in advancing the rights of LGBTQ people throughout the state. Please consider supporting my re-election campaign by volunteering or by making a financial contribution.
