Mayoral Candidate Kevin Foy is Qualified Choice For Area Neighborhoods

Case 1: Widening Weaver Dairy Road. When the state wanted to widen Weaver Dairy Road to five lanes, Pavao said sure, OK with me. But not Foy. He stood with the neighborhoods in their fight to limit the widening of the road to what truly was necessary. Foy is the champion of the Timberlyne, Cedar Hills, Silver Creek and Chandler's Green neighborhoods.

Case 2: When the University and others wanted to dramatically widen Columbia Street, which would have ruined the quiet, wooded atmosphere of the Purefoy and Westwood neighborhoods, Pavao said he thought the town made a mistake by not agreeing to widen the road. Not Foy. Foy has vocally championed the cause of the neighborhoods and won't agree to widening Columbia Street.

Case 3: When the University recently wanted to expand its campus into existing Chapel Hill neighborhoods, particularly the Mason Farm neighborhood, Foy was right there on the side of the neighborhoods again.

Foy was Mason Farm's champion.

I know Foy will continue to be an ardent, vocal champion for responsible growth while protecting the environment. This election does matter.

In the last local election only 16 percent of us voted. Every vote counts. Please vote Tuesday, November 6th, and make it a vote for Foy.
