Wolff hasn't made withdrawal official, campaign signs still abound

Posted by on Wed, Oct 21, 2009 at 10:12 AM

Despite announcing his intentions to drop out of the Chapel Hill mayor's race, Kevin Wolff campaign signs still encourage residents to vote for him, and he hasn't submitted any formal withdrawal to the Orange County Board of Elections.

 As WCHL first reported, Wolff declared his intentions Thursday at the radio station's  elections forum, but he hasn't filed any official paperwork. Wolff is declining all media  requests, referring all questions to his 60-word, "Kevin believes the town will best be  served by stepping aside "press release" and to the following Horton-inspired sentence,  "I said what I meant and I meant what I said."

Due to his timing, his name will remain on the ballot, and in lieu of filing formal paperwork and taking down his signs, he could still earn the most votes and the mayor's seat. Campaign manager Steve Hill said he was unsure of Wolff's plans.

"I'm only stammering because I'm a little surprised by the questions. I don't know if there's a position about an official filing," he said. "He may just leave signs up until after because he's not required to take them down."

 One Dr. Seuss quote deserves another. Mr. Wolff, "Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple."
