The article gives short shrift to Raleigh City bus service available to the new bus station. The writer notes that " CAT hopes to run 15-minute service downtown.". Raleigh's Route 1, which stops in front of the building, runs 19 hours a day (4:30 am to 12:05 am) already with 15-minute headways 6 hours per day and 30 minute headways most of the remainder. There are 42 city buses a day running from the new bus station location to downtown each day. I don't mean to minimize the inconvenience of the move, however.
Aren't you supposed to credit The Onion when you cut and pasted this story ?
Actually the current system dates from 1972, not 1947. 1972 was when then councilmember Michael Boyd, dissatisfied with the 1947 system where all council members were elected at-large and the council chose the Mayor, tried to get the council to change the system and when that failed he circulated a petition and get the necessary 5,000 signature that forced a referendum, where the voters adopted the current system. That referendum law is still in effect -Gerry Cohen
Oraneg County Commissioners have the transit tax referendum approval on their June 5 agenda for action!
how about a box listing the early voting sites in Wake/Durham/Orange rather than force your readers to search the web for the info?
excellent story. Lee ran a great campaign. He even called me in June for campaign tips and historical insights and I haven't lived in Chapel Hill since before Lee was born. I raised $1109.60 when I was elected to the Chapel Hill Town Council at age 23 in 1973. -Gerry Cohen
excellent story, tho fact checking I would point out that the 11:45 Raleigh to Charlotte train originates in Raleigh, it is the 4:50 pm train that starts in New York.
