Congratulations to Laurin Easthom, Mark Kleinschmidt, Ed Harrison, Bill Thorpe, and Mayor Kevin Foy, all winners in yesterday's Chapel Hill Town Council election. Congratulations also to Will Raymond, who came short of winning but ran an energetic and innovative campaign. I hope he'll stay involved.
Halfway through my own term, I'm reminded what an honor and a privilege it is to be elected to serve the people of Chapel Hill. I look forward to working with my new colleagues on furthering our current agendas--especially those that are important to me such as inclusionary zoning, homelessness, our downtown development initiative, environmental protection--and to listening to their new ideas.
