    Etiquette lessons coming from you? Now that is a riot. Make you a deal, you stop taking completely sleazy, baseless potshots and then I won't have to set the record straight.

    Leeches/losers/anonymous hacks....whatever.

    I can think of a few other qualifiers

    • Honest
    • Forthright
    • Believes that government should be transparent
    • Has core values independent of party platform
    • Works hard
    • Understands that listening to citizens and casting votes are two different things
    • When law is in doubt, sides with citizens
    • When law is clear, follows the law or works to change it
    • Believes that capitalism and individual freedoms are what made this country great and that they shouldn't be abridged
    • Understands that fundamental to our freedom is the right to own and develop property
    • Believes that taxes are a necessary evil in a free society
    • Understands that money coming from the feds originally came from us

    I'm sure I'll come up with more as the day rolls on

    Now one more time back to the thread about District 41, whoever is to take the seat should be someone that has political experience, no baggage, and is able to raise enough money to keep the seat.

    Don - thanks for basically posting my Preamble... let me know if I need to write CP a check or if this is going to be free advertising.

    Go ahead and write the check. Why do you feel you would be the best candidate? This question is for anyone that is interested in the seat not just Matt.

    I too am hearing that Gale is making calls. And I agree that it would be a loss for the Town.

    Rumor only no confirmation that a former state senator may be in the running.

    You lived in Rochester, NY, capital of photography for the entire known universe and home of George Eastman and Kodak. So I am sure of your photographic skills.

    I am afraid that is not possible. Just make me look like a younger and better looking version of me. That will be enough.

    A lot has happened since. And I can't say anything about how Gale got into the race. But I can verify that CE worked very hard in support of Gale's candidacy (and that of the other Dem council candidates that year). I saw a lot of that work firsthand and know for a fact from other contemporary sources that there was a lot more I didn't see. CE was very active as Cary Vice Chair at the time and did a ery good job in that role during that election season.

    A lot has happened since. But it doesn't negate her work then.

    Per the N&O

    At least nine Democratic candidates are already running to replace Rep. Ty Harrell who resigned Sunday amid a campaign finance investigation.
    Wake County Democratic Party Chairman Jack Nichols said nine candidates have declared so far for the District 41 seat:
    -- Chris Heagarty, former director of the N.C. Center for Voter Education
    -- Janet Schanzenbach, lobbyist for mental health programs and rehabilitation facilities
    -- Gale Adcock, Cary Town Council member
    -- John Shaw, a retired electrical engineer and Democratic Party activist
    -- Matt Danielson, former county Democratic Party vice chair
    -- Linda Gunter, former state senator and lobbyist for N.C. Association of Educators
    -- Christopher Headen, executive director of Meals on Wheels of Durham
    -- Steve Rao, director of business development at Datacraft Solutions
    -- Terry L. "Doc" Thome
    Democratic Party precinct chairs and party leaders within the district will meet by Oct. 20 and vote on Harrell’s replacement. When a lawmaker resigns, his or her party selects the replacement, and the governor must appoint that person.

    Would like to hear from those running. Why do you feel you would be the best candidate?
