Re: “The INDY’s Endorsements for Superior Court and District Court Judges

Uh... Why didn't you endorse for the Long seat in 15B? There will be 2 names on the ballot but voters need to know that only Sherri Murrell is actively seeking the seat and eligible to serve the full term. She deserved your endorsement.

Re: “The INDY’s Endorsements for Orange County Schools and Affordable Housing Bonds

The Indy has some history of reactionary endorsements without the full picture, and here you go again. Orange County has a list of criteria that it will use to judge proposals from partners committed to affordable housing. There isn't a "plan" because they haven't solicited the proposals yet -- who would submit a proposal before there's funding available? The criteria is excellent -- focuses on ensuring access to transit and broad coverage of needs (including often-overlooked adults with disabilities), for example. A vote against means nothing will be done. How could that possibly be a better plan?

Re: “In Chapel Hill mayoral race, conservatives try to upend the liberal front-runner

Why does the article call Matt Cz a lone wolf on the basis of his vote against the medical benefits for life when the entire Council agreed with him in the end and changed the policy? He was ahead of the curve there, but also convincing in bringing public attention to the issue and getting council members to change their minds.
