Re: “Our handy voting guide for the November 2013 election

First of all, I want to congratulate the incumbents on their endorsements. All three have impressive records on the Board and are well known in the community. As a challenger, I expect to be at a disadvantage. It is true that I have not had the opportunity to participate in various task forces and committees and enact policies that come as a result of being an elected official. While I appreciate the acknowledgment of my “charms”, I do in fact stand for substantial issues facing our town.

There is a serious employment and housing inequality crisis in Carrboro that has progressively worsened to the point where there are few permanent residents between the ages of 22 and 30. We cannot offer them any employment opportunities or affordable housing, and as a recent graduate/stay-at-home father in a one-income family, I understand this struggle. Despite being hailed as a walkable and bikable town, the majority of our children still arrive to school by car or bus when it would be more convenient, and encourage active lifestyles, to walk or bike.

I would like to encourage citizens to visit my website, www.kurtstolka.com and learn more about my views, see my responses during live forums and to various questionnaires, and learn more about me as a serious and dedicated candidate for Carrboro Board of Alderman.
