TO THE EDITOR:
I write to endorse wholeheartedly Gene Pease, a candidate for the Chapel Hill Town Council. Gene has demonstrated his commitment to the community through his service on the Orange County Water and Sewer Authority board, the planning board and the Chapel Hill Public Library Foundation. In these positions he built a record of leadership and accomplishment.
Pease is a talented and seasoned CEO of mid-sized companies. He understands budgeting and financial management, and would bring those talents to town government in a time when we need to moderate the tax burden and support our local businesses.
In working with Gene, I find him to be reasonable, thoughtful and collaborative. He listens to all viewpoints and has a nice sense of humor, which he will certainly need as a council member.
Please join me in electing Gene Pease to the Chapel Hill Town Council. He will be an effective, positive leader on day one.
Chapel Hill mayor
