Re: “There he goes again: "Positive voice" Van Dyk attacks Crowder

Paid for by the committee to elect Thomas Crowder? "Indy editorial employees may not run for office. Nor may they campaign or raise money for political candidates, or contribute to those campaigns, including referenda. Indy editorial employees cannot serve on government boards or commissions or boards of trustees." -Independent Weekly Editorial Code of Ethics

Re: “No surprises in Raleigh

Indy endorsers, I'm glad you posted a link to your Voter Guide, but I am left you actually read it? I find that your justification for endorsements does not reflect the answers included in the candidate questionnaires. This is particularly true in District D. It is no surprise that you endorsed Tom Crowder (given your negative blog posts regarding Mr. Van Dyke); however you mention Crowder "talking true urban form", while Mr. Van Dyke has contributed to urban form in a tangible way through his architectural practice. Furthermore, Tom Crowder voted against two projects that would have contributed urban density close to shopping and N.C. State (less than 3 miles from downtown) with access to current bus routes, while approving projects that contributed to sprawl. You might also want to be cautious with your congratulations on improvements to the comp plan. I assume you haven't studied those improvements carefully either. Some neighborhoods were rewarded with the kind of density they wanted. The less vocal neighborhoods may be worse for the "improvements". Keep up the good work!
