Seems like you forgot to mention how these women won or retained their seats--the old-fashioned way-by spending gobs more money than their GOP challengers.
On average each of these women spent $77K on their campaigns, while the opponents spent $18K, so they spent 4 times as much as their opponents.
I don't doubt that if their challengers had won, campaign finance would be the lead of this article.
Local governments have monopoly power over water and sewer, financed by taxpayers. The current situation lets the regime in power deny economic benefits to groups they dislike.
Would you support a school system that could choose not to provide schooling to the children of political opponents? Yet this is what the current situation permits regarding sewer and water.
I have great respect for Eugene Brown and his principled opposition to the Rolling Hills boondoggle, but, regardless of your view about the 751 development, the present process driven by the self-styled "Progressive" bullies is broken.
Durham needs Smart Development, not "Smart Growth" the Progressives' codeword for no growth.
