"...Parker has our enthusiastic endorsement. So does Susan Hunter, an impressive newcomer who’s won the backing of Equality NC, the Next Chapel Hill & Carrboro Action Fund (no surprise, since she’s a board member), the Orange-Chatham Group Sierra Club, and a slew of progressives we respect, including outgoing council member Donna Bell and Orange County Commissioner Mark Marcoplos. She, too, is a strong advocate for a climate change plan and a strong advocate of regional transit, as well as using both town-owned land and development partnerships to create affordable units while adding to the supply via gentle density."

Orange-Chatham Group Sierra Club

"

"In making 2019 candidate endorsements, the Orange-Chatham Group of the NC Sierra Club carefully selected candidates to whom a focus on climate change mitigation is a top priority, including candidates who: (1) truly understand how climate and environmental quality intersect with local land use, transportation, and housing policy, and (2) have reality- based solutions and the skills and determination to get them accomplished."

The Club believes that its slate of endorsed candidates in the Carrboro, Chapel Hill, Hillsborough, and Pittsboro elections are the best leaders to accomplish the challenging work ahead in fulfilling our local governments’ obligations to act quickly to combat climate change and protect our environment for this and future generations." Press Release

Equality NC

"These individuals were chosen through a selection process by the Equality NC PAC. The endorsed candidates align with the organization’s ongoing mission of fighting for a more just and equitable world for all North Carolinians." Press Release
