It’s time for a new vision for Chapel Hill. Because of his fiscal prudence and emphasis on growth, Matt Czajkowski is the right choice for Chapel Hill mayor.
The city needs a break from the leadership of the last eight years, and Czajkowski can deliver on an alternate vision.
As someone with a strong business background, he will help the board act decisively in tough economic times.
Czajkowski is the best candidate to secure future development for the town. He recognizes that the town needs to step away from mixed-use developments such as Meadowmont and Southern Village, which have not lived up to their commercial promise.
Further, he stated that he wants to place an emphasis on bringing new retailers and high-density commercial destinations to help the town generate more revenue. But he is also cognizant that massive growth is not going to happen, and that it is not what Chapel Hill wants.
The mayor is essentially a figurehead for the town. Czajkowski’s vision for the future of Chapel Hill is what we need for the next two years. Czajkowski has stressed that the mayor’s role is to conduct fair, balanced and open discussion on the council. And we believe he will be able to do this.
But regardless of who you support, you need to go vote.
