Sierra Club endorses all incumbents, two challengers in Orange County races

Posted by on Thu, Oct 8, 2009 at 11:29 AM

The Sierra Club announced its endorsements today in municipal races in Chapel Hill, Carrboro and Hillsborough. The following candidates gained their support:

- In Chapel Hill: Mark Kleinschmidt for mayor and Laurin Easthom, Ed Harrision, Jim Merritt and Penny Rich for town council.

-  In Carrboro: Mark Chilton for mayor and Jacquelyn Gist, Randee Haven-O'Donnell and Sammy Slade for board of aldermen.

- In Hillsborough: Tom Stevens for mayor and Mike Gering and Frances Dancy for town board.

Thus the group is backing all incumbents with Penny Rich gaining support for the open seat that Kleinschmidt will leave and Sammy Slade for John Herrera's old post.

You can read the group's rationale for each race by clicking on the above links. The Indy's endorsements hit stands this Wednesday.
