Come and learn about issues in mayoral race


So many of the political decisions that directly affect our campus community are determined by local elections. Students represent a vast portion of the Chapel Hill population, and we have the power to make our voices heard in issues that impact our lives.

As responsible residents, we need to be informed about the stances of each mayoral candidate in order to make an educated decision and then get to the polls.

Many students don’t even know the name of Kevin Foy, the current mayor in Chapel Hill, let alone his policies and plans for our town — regarding Franklin Street, mixed-use developments, parking, safety, panhandling, affordable housing and others that affect students.

The Campus Y has many committees involved within our community. We see the impact that these decisions have, and we urge students to be engaged in choosing our town’s leadership.

Tonight, come to the upstairs of the Campus Y at 7:30 p.m. for a Table Talk event to learn more about these issues that affect you and how you can be heard.

And then vote! Early voting is at Morehead Planetarium all this week, and if you live on campus all you need is a OneCard!
