Jim Ward is clearly a level-headed, committed and knowledgeable member of the Chapel Hill Town Council, and voters should reward him with a vote to continue his tenure in town government.
Ward has demonstrated he is a practical thinker and is unafraid to take a stand. He was right to push for more affordable housing concessions in the Ephesus-Fordham district, even though the rest of the council was keen on recognizing the necessity of revitalizing the area.
Still, Ward has shown his disagreement doesn’t stop him from being a collegial and effective member of the council.
Ward is also particularly impressive with his knowledge and care for environmental issues.
Chapel Hill is an exceptional community, and Jim Ward is committed to keeping it that way. Voters should re-elect him.
