Cam Hill takes credit for controversial mailer

Posted by on Tue, Nov 3, 2009 at 1:34 PM

Former Chapel Hill Councilman Cam Hill, who lost his seat by 63 votes to Matt Czajkowski in 2007, is taking credit today for controversial anti-Czajkowski mailers sent out days before the election.

On Monday, the Orange County Democratic and Republican parties issued a joint press release denouncing the material, which was sent by "CHC PAC." Today, Hill told WCHL 1360 that he is the sole member of the group, which stands for Chapel Hill Caucus.

Both Czajkowski and challenger Mark Kleinschmidt have said they are disappointed in the tone of the fliers, which questioned Czajkowski's concern for the environment and employees among other things.

Hill has until Wednesday to officially register as a political action committee, according to state election law.
