Re: “2012 Primary Voting Guide

If you're voting the Indy Endorsement on County Commissioner, you should really check out John Owens for your fifth vote. John is easily the most progressive candidate, he's running the strongest challenger campaign, and he represents an important shift away from the status quo.

The website is chock full of policy ideas and issue commentary, check it out: www.TeamOwens.com

The Duke Democrats endorsed John saying:
"We believe John Owens is the single strongest candidate; among the fourteen candidates, we appreciate that at forums and in questionnaires, he is rarely evasive, and speaks directly and honestly without obfuscating his beliefs or his intentions. This quality is uncommon in any politician—and is sorely needed given the lack of transparency in Durham government. Some participants in Durham politics accuse Durham’s “progressive left” of being out-of-touch with the needs of low-income Durham residents—Owens’ life-story and background speak directly to his understanding of the role in government in helping to support citizens in their pathway out of poverty."

Rev Carl Kenney (who also used to write for the Indy) enthusiastically endorsed John on his popular blog, the Rev-Elution.
He wrote:
This kid has the stuff. I call him kid out of respect for what he brings, youthfulness, a fresh approach, an amazing understanding of the issues and a departure from business as usual in Durham [...]
Those in office may be a bit out of touch, and we need some new blood running the show. [...] The Rev-elution can see past the birth certificate. He’s among the best ”

We posted this on the other thread, but it bears repeating:

Please use your fifth vote for John Owens... and vote AGAINST Amendment 1!
