On November 5, Carrboro voters offered me the privilege of serving a second term on the Board of Aldermen. I am beyond grateful. Thank you.
There is important work ahead for Carrboro in the next few years. I’m looking forward to engaging in this work with all of you and with my colleagues, including Alderperson-elect Susan Romaine, who will join the board on December 3.
Meanwhile, Tuesday’s election didn’t slow things down. Just this week, Mayor Lavelle and I attended a meeting of the Orange County Board of Commissioners to discuss Carrboro’s perspective on the proposed widening of NC 54 west of town. I also gave a presentation to the Chamber’s Government Affairs Committee on upcoming transportation projects in Carrboro and Chapel Hill. Today, I attended the Orange County Democratic Party’s annual legislative lunch to rally around a push for statewide change in the critical 2020 election.
There is no shortage of ways to get involved in the issues you care about, both here in Carrboro and around the state. Let’s talk. I continue to hold monthly community office hours to discuss your thoughts about local issues. Drop by my next office hours on Sunday, November 17, between
2:00 and 4:00 pm 12:30 and 2:30 pm at Johnny’s on West Main Street.
