Letter: DTH should give José Valle a shot at EIC

Last weekend, the DTH’s board of directors disqualified José Valle from running for editor-in-chief. He had accidentally submitted the wrong file for his budget proposal, which is a new requirement for EIC candidates this year.

Letter: We must support the Center for Civil Rights

The proposal under consideration by The Board of Governors’ Educational Policy committee to stop the Center for Civil Rights from litigating against state and other entities defies the mission of UNC-Chapel Hill.

Letter: Local voting patterns have skewed left

I’ve done a deep dive into voting patterns of UNC students living on or near campus who are registered in Orange County, focusing on 1992-1996, and 2008-2016 presidential elections.

Letter: ​​You don’t need a degree to succeed

Letter: ​House Bill 2 has gone on for too long

I have read so much on this unjust bill and how it came about from the fearmongering of the Conservative side who based it on no factual evidence, (and) feel that granting the basic right of using the restroom you identify with is some sort of threat to girls and women.

Letter: Health care proposal is bad for America

Trumpcare is a blow to working class families, older adults and an assault on Medicaid and Medicare! It does nothing to CUT costs, the very premise on which it is planning to supersede Obamacare!

Letter: Tell your reps to take money out of politics

Perhaps my fellow citizens have failed to notice that we, as a society have invested a great deal of trust, power and authority in legal entities whose only reason for existing is to make a profit.
