Makes you wonder how "Indy" is the Indy weekly
Endorsing a republican over the amazing Mike Woodard because Doucettes twitter rants are interesting.
Orange County has both an affordable housing plan (recently adopted) and great providers who desperately need resources to create and preserve housing units. $5 million is a step in the right direction toward meeting a critical community need. It's a shame the Indy has written such an uninformed piece.
You endorse Greg Doucette, a candidate with no legislative experience, because he sends out some cool "twitter rants". You believe it would be to Durham's advantage to have a renegade Republican representing Durham rather than Mike Woodard a hardworking, liberal Democrat. This is further evidence of the Indy becoming smug and detached from the community it serves.This is a newspaper that has lost it's bearings.
Oh wait -- the third time I found it. In the print version -- except you've got Mike Woodard and his opponent running in "House District 22" instead of for state Senate. Yes, you should be embarrassed.
Oh Indy. Clap your hands and spin around 3 times and a moderate freshman Republican will have even the tiniest voice in our intensely divided State Senate. Mike Woodard is doing a great job, represents the views of Indy readers and advertisers, and deserves your endorsement. Be ashamed.
This IS interesting. I don't think I'm going blind, and my sexaginarian eyeballs did NOT detect in the "hard copy" of the 10/19 Independent any mention of N.C. Senate District 22, Democratic incumbent Mike Woodard, or the Republican challenger the Indy endorsed online. I looked twice. Was there a last-second change of heart before you went to press? You need to explain yourselves.
Truly fail to see your logic or lack thereof. My brother-in-law works all the time for District 22. Why not endorse him, as he is progressive, caring, and wants NC to be the best state? To start over with a new Senator seems very short-sighted and really out there. You lost your credibility with me and a large number of readers on this one, Indy. Ashley Wilson Brook
Beth Boswell fails the sense of humor quiz.
CanNOT get over your indefensible endorsement of Doucette over Mike Woodard. Just remember, McCrory was lauded as a moderate, reasonable Republican, and look at what a mess he (and his legislative allies) have made of our state. The water in your office coolers must have been tainted with something pretty serious to make this kind of ridiculous, nonsensical endorsement. I suggest you try again.
you left out the possibility that it could have been a "inside job"
To what audience is the condescending subtitle "PLEASE DON'T SCREW THIS UP" directed? Should we take notes or complete a quiz at the end?
Don't care enough about the Senate 20 race to even mention it?
You reviewed almost 67% of the choices for Dist. 1. Everything from A to B.

Just wanted Jim Bob above to know that I am also a Vietnam Vet. I am proud that there are more Democrats who are veterans (Bruce Davis in 13 is also) than there are Republicans running for Congress.
I think T. Greg Doucette will make an excellent state senator, not because he's my son, but because he's continually been involved in the community. Also, as an attorney he's much more aware of laws that need to change as well as those that need to be repealed. He's not a typical modern day Republican. If you read his platform online at www.votetgreg.com, you'll see why many people from all sides support him! Including Joy Reid!
Wonderful!!! I hope they get Elmo's on board!
You got the referendum wrong. That should be a big NO! I'm not against buses but that train is ridiculous and a huge waste of money. At least get something like Atlanta's MARTA. Otherwise I'll have to buy a penny farthing to ride up to the ol' timey station!
Have you lost your minds?????
There is NO Republican who will be more effective than Mike Woodard. Your logic fails. Utterly.
In all Mike's years of public service, he has been the Energizer Bunny, seemingly in multiple places at once. He has been an outspoken voice on progressive issues. He has tirelessly sought to reach across the aisle even in these acrimonious times.
Your recommendation of a Republican for that seat is pure-T boneheaded dumb dumb dumb. Take it back!
