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.
