Margaret Brown has been a thoughtful and hardworking county commissioner. We should re-elect her so she may continue to serve our county well.
Our county commissioners are faced with many difficult choices about responsible land use, how to manage the pressures of growth and how to use our tax dollars. I have known Margaret for many years and I know that she is a careful student of the long-term consequences of decisions made today. She has the vision to continue making good choices about long-range planning and the environment.
For many years, I have been a teacher in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro school system and concern for my students always affects my choice on Election Day. I know Margaret to be a strong advocate for quality education and other programs for children and young people. As we face the challenges of growth and diversity in our educational systems, I feel that Margaret's sensitivity and studious attention to complex problems will continue to serve our students effectively.
