Re: “In U.S. House District 4, the INDY Endorses David Price

Being an old white man doesnt disqualify a great rep like Price from serving. Hes been a terrific Congressman for our district, and I look forward to him really making progress on gun safety with the wind at his back this time.

The Indy is right, he is indeed a good fit with district 4. We do need some new people in Washington, no doubt, but that is no reason to dump the good ones, there are *many many* others that cry out for replacements, Price is not one of them.

In 2020, who knows what the landscape will look like, but for 2018, we need Price where he is,

Re: “Responding to Activists, the Durham City Council Rejects Police Exchanges With Israel

Very thorough coverage. Agree with the previous commenter - thank you!!

Re: “Drawing Accusations of Anti-Semitism, Durham City Council Passes Statement on Police Exchanges

What a biased, uninformative headline. Bravo to Durham City Council for taking a principled stand and shame on Indy Week for such slanted coverage, spending the opening paragraphs and title painting a completely misleading picture. Israel does not represent all Jews nor do all Jews support Israel (not to mention militarized police training by the Israeli army?? Even Jews supportive of Israel can oppose such exchanges). Acting as though ALL Jews hold some position and therefore opposing said position is anti-Semitic IS ANTI-SEMITIC

Re: “In U.S. House District 4, the INDY Endorses David Price

Status quo is not what we need in Washington now. We need bold New leadership Price has had is time and even during his time there was nothing bold about his leadership. If you say Laws is an excellent candidate just not for this race leads me to believe that your paper has given Price ownership of a seat that belongs to the people. It's time for change.

Re: “Progress Is This Way: Fine, Get Mad About Trump. But Local Elections Matter More.

Mark Kleinschmidt, really? He is an underhanded crook who is doing this solely for his own benefit while he reaps destruction in CH. And I'm a democrat. He makes me ashamed to be in the same party.

Re: “In U.S. House District 4, the INDY Endorses David Price

Why no mention of Richard L. Watkins? He's a live wire, very accomplished and attractive, and advocates everything we want, even an environment. Am I missing something? I do see him more as a Senator than a Rep. though. (Oh, and I'm white.)

Re: “In U.S. House District 4, the INDY Endorses David Price

FYI -- there are three candidates in NC-4. Not sure why the Indy completely omitted that fact and wrote the article as if only two existed.

Re: “In U.S. House District 4, the INDY Endorses David Price

CT I'm sure the dixiecrats have already selected his replacement and I'm doubtful if he makes it through another term. He really should bow out and give Michelle Laws a chance. But again, this is how our candidates are chosen and propped up by the democratic party.

Re: “For Durham County Sheriff, the INDY Endorses Clarence Birkhead

Knowing Clarence Birkhead for the past 25+ years and knowing his intelligence, education, commitment to Justice, together with his strong love of people and desire to better his world and ours, I know he is worthy of our support. Clarence has been very active in both politics and the community since his return to Durham County in 2013. He has served on several committees and commisions here in Durham and has worked hard to further our community. As Sheriff, he will be committed to Transparency, Engagement and Accountability.

Re: “For Durham County Sheriff, the INDY Endorses Clarence Birkhead

What has Clarence Birkhead done for the past 6 years, other than run for Sheriff three times in two counties?? What kind of track record is that ??

Re: “Progress Is This Way: Fine, Get Mad About Trump. But Local Elections Matter More.

You say local elections are important but then you pull out of Chatham County and its measly three races and cop out with No Endorsement in every GOP primary. You used to be influential in Chatham and even in the GOP primaries one candidate is less bad than the other and readers come here for that information. This used to be the only place to get real info about local races but less so now. You become less relevant every election.

Re: “For Durham County District Attorney, the INDY Endorses Roger Echols

The INDY's endorsements stem from lengthy questionnaires that each of the candidates submitted. Why have the responses not been posted?

Re: “In N.C. House District 11, the INDY Endorses Allison Dahle

My apologies for the typo in my previous comment. My email address shouldve read:

Re: “In N.C. House District 11, the INDY Endorses Allison Dahle

First of all Id like to thank Jeffrey Billman for fixing the error that I did not respond.
Secondly, in response to the the statement (and assumption) that I dodged the question about raising the age to purchase a firearm: No, I do not agree with raising the age. I understand, to a degree, why one might suggest this but it just doesnt make sense to do so and also infringes on the Constitutional rights of young adults. If we raise the age from 18 to 21 should we also raise the age to enlist in the military?? Its not about the age, its about being an educated and responsible gun owner.
Again, if anyone has any comments, questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at:
Shawnmichaelhamilon@gmail.com

Thank you.

Laws doesn't stand a chance, but Price is not immortal and eventually Dems will have to select his successor.

Re: “Not Just for Club Kids: Red Bull’s New Sodas Make for Surprisingly Good Cocktail Mixers

Serious question - is this paid copy by redbull? or did your writer just publish their PR copy?

Re: “In U.S. House District 4, the INDY Endorses David Price

Your endorsement of Price is dead wrong....he's just another old white man and Michelle Laws is an amazing woman who gets things done....I have known her for a decade and she has shown remarkable accomplishments on the grassroots level....we need more like her....Price has had his chance to make a legacy and let him give another qualified candidate a chance!!
