    Default NC House District 41

    It's being reported that our very own MattD & johnshaw have expressed in filling the District 41 seat formerly held by Ty Harrell who resigned under pressure recently. CP offers congrats and wishes them both luck.

    If news reports are correct, CP notes with some concern that Cary District 'D' Councilor Gale Adcock is also in the mix. In office less than two years and looking to 'move up' makes us question Ms. Adcock's commitment to her constituents.

    Don --

    I am very surprised by your comments regarding Gale Adcock.

    You normally give good balance to the left - however - this time I think you are poorly framing the situation. Gale Adcock would continue to serve constituents in a different capacity. Her ability to work with both Dems & Reps plus her indepth knowledge of both local & healthcare issues (being that we are now missing representation in that area) are all positives.

    She would not be "abandoning" her constituents - unlike the former Alaska Governor.

    I hope to see you Thursday night --

    By that reasoning, it seems you would support the aforementioned Alaska Governor if she chose to run for the Presidency in 2012

    I think Gale would be horrible for NC House. She is smart, honest, ethical and not a crook. Why lose a really good council member to the insanity of the NC House!

    I agree with jdcasey. Gale would continue to serve her constituents as a member of the house if selected. I wish her, and all the other applicants for that matter the best of luck.

    Personally, and selfishly I might add, I hope that Gale is not selected to replace Ty Harrell.

    As a member of the council Gale has earned a reputation for being fair, open minded, and a voice of reason. She comes prepared to meetings, does her homework, and listens. She treats citizens, business owners and town staff with the respect they deserve. She never takes anything personal and can agree to disagree. She articulates her thoughts well and doesn't speak just for the sake of hearing herself speak (I wish others could do the same). Gale truly cares about the quality of life in Cary and that of our region, and works hard to improve it. Gale also has this uncanny gift of making folks feel comfortable - no matter what the situation may be. While we may not agree on every matter that comes before the council, I know without a doubt that Gale votes her conscience and that her heart is in the right place.

    I truly enjoy serving with Gale Adcock and will genuinely miss her if she is selected to replace Ty Harrell.

    So you are against the Wake Dems picking her for purely selfish reasons?

    This is a perfect example of what public service should be about - working with others to make the quality of life better. With little to no drama.

    Gale would look funnier in a bowtie! Not sure if that's a plus or a minus though.

    So a few questions...Don where was this reporting you cited? And Matt & John - any comment?

    I'll say this...I could fully and enthusiastically support any of the three.
