Re: “Chris Brown Still Sucks

It seems the anger management classes didn't take.

Re: “Durham Residents Will Get to Tell the City How to Spend $2.4 Million

Middleton and Schewel were right to vote no. We elected the city council to make decisions on the budget - not to cede their power to an unelected board that will soak up $304,000 in admin costs. That $304,000 could have been spent on actual projects.

Re: “Durham County Budget Proposal Includes Tax Increase, More Sheriff's Office Positions, Money for Pre-K

20 new positions for the Sheriff's office, but not enough money to fully fund DPS? It seems county priorities are out of whack.

This is right up there with funding county office buildings downtown while school building renovations & maintenance is deferred and deferred. Leaky roofs and broken HVAC systems at schools don't fix themselves.

And it isn't DPS' fault that charter enrollment is growing unchecked - that's on the General Assembly. County money flows to the charters where there is no accountability to DPS or the county for the money, for educational standards or results.

Re: “Here’s What It Would Cost to Give Wake Schools What They Want

Bottom line - the state is shirking it's responsibility for K-12 education funding, just as it has done for years with the UNC system. Corporate tax cuts are more important to the NCGOP than public education. The only way to change that is to vote them out in November.

Re: “Durham Committee Makes Primary Election Endorsements

They should have supported Natalie Beyer for DPS School Board District 4. Beyer has done a good job.

Re: “What Does Shady EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt Actually Have to Do to Get Himself Fired?

Pruitt is an embarrassment - greedy, dumb, paranoid, and egotistical - which means Trump must absolutely love him.

Re: “Here’s Some Good News for Proponents of the Durham-Orange Light Rail Transit Project

This is great news. DOLRT needs to move forward to help shape development for the coming decades. There will never be enough money to add lanes to I-40, I-85, US 15-501, US 70, NC 147, and other crowded area highways.

Building DOLRT will allow more density to be built in the corridor for those who want an urban environment to live it. Without it our housing costs will continue to skyrocket.
