Re: “Cole-McFadden and Clement take top votes in Durham

Durham Municipal Candidates Forum
Free & Open to the Public
Sunday October 18th 3:00 PM
Location: The Forest at Duke Clubhouse
2701 Pickett Road Durham, NC 27705

Hear candidates running for Durham City Council speak about their background, qualifications and priorities.
Ask them questions about issues that are important to you.

FORMAT: Candidates will be given 2 minutes to present their credentials and platform. Our moderator will then solicit questions from the audience. This means the majority of the program will be hearing candidates respond to your questions about whats important to you.

This is an ideal setting to evaluate the candidates firsthand and learn about their vision for Durham.

Re: “Durham neighborhood may sell to Wal-Mart at Southpoint for $20.5M

This is a blatant attempt by Keith-Foust to avoid paying taxes on the land. I hope someone has already reported her church to the IRS and state tax authorities for investigation.

Re: “Long faces and a short night at the N.C. GOP party

"Ruin it for democracy." ??!! Honey -- this WAS democracy in action. You can't just be for democracy when it comes to voters who look and act just like you. You're kind of missing a fundamental point there -- get thee to a political science class!

Re: “2008 Indy Endorsements

Gentlemen, the Indy does not and never has hid the fact that it is a (wonderfully) progressive newspaper. Why in the world have you two not caught on and why do you profess surprise at who they endorsed? If you want bacon, would you look for it in a hen house? If you want to read about conservative candidates you can endorse, well, I don't know -- move to Lenoir where the rightwing morons are busily sending out completely fabricated emails about "busloads of mentally retarded people, and some of them are blind, too!" being liquored up by their "black aides" then driven to the polls and forced to vote for Obama. That sounds more like your speed.

Re: “Who to call if you have trouble on Nov. 4

Not to be picky, but this hotline number -- which is more easily remembered as 1866-OUR-VOTE (if you're calling by landline) is not the UNC School of Law Hotline, it's the national Election Protection Hotline, which has been working their butt off all year to pull together a coalition of legal volunteers, volunteers that obviously include the good people at the UNC School of Law. But I think we ought to give the Election Protection people credit where credit is due.

Re: “Local leaders pull no punches about Jesse Helms' legacy

God bless John Paul Womble for helping us all rise above -- and for helping me let go of my own personal anger at the legacy Helms has left behind in this state. Thanks, too, for Bob Hall for calmly and rationally nailing it on the head as always.
