Hey Bob, you're incorrect about no current councilor living in Southeast Raleigh. Mary-Ann Baldwin lives in District C, as she mentioned at yesterday's reception for Dr. West.
As for me, would I like to see a younger generation? Sure! But I want to see some commitment first. How have they become involved in their community, their CAC, their city government? How are they equipped to handle the daunting workload of a city councilor?
Eugene Weeks has proven he cares deeply about Raleigh in general and Southeast Raleigh in particular. He's earned his nod.

Sorry, in my post above I didn't mean to say that closing a crossing would be hugely expensive. It's the tunneling of tracks that would be hugely expensive (and destructive).
Glenwood South is one of Raleigh's few pedestrian-friendly areas. If accommodating cars at Jones Street is too expensive, focus on preserving the pedestrian access.
