Five people are seeking four seats on the Board of Aldermen, including three incumbents—Jacquelyn Gist, Sammy Slade, and Randee Haven-O'Donnell. We don't see a need to replace any of them. They're all progressive and well-versed in the issues.
For the vacant spot, we endorse Barbara Foushee, a senior technologist in a molecular oncology lab who has experience serving on Carrboro's Human Services Advisory Commission and the OWASA board of directors. She is also branch secretary for the Carrboro-Chapel Hill chapter of the NAACP and pledges to be a voice for the voiceless in Carrboro.
