Town Council Candidate Ed Harrison Has an Edge On Transportation Issues

As the race for seats on the Chapel Hill Town Council heats up, several issues are worth highlighting. Environmental protection, alternative transportation and careful development are intertwined and important to any community. Living in Chapel Hill and the county of Durham, Ed Harrison has a regional understanding of transportation challenges and an intimate view of proposed development in Durham which may impact Chapel Hill.

He has a graduate degree in environmental management and is a member of the Soil and Water Conservation District Board in Durham County, an elected office. He is an activist, a cyclist and naturalist, and offers specific solutions to the issues at hand. One of his most compelling comments is, "If we don't succeed at making Chapel Hill even friendlier to walkers, cyclists and transit users, we risk public health and deny independence to our seniors and youth!" Who cannot relate to that?
