So far, so good

With all precincts reporting, Chatham County is no longer a the mercy of Commissioners who were bought and paid for by Cary developers, Real Estate Brokers, and big business. They also shot down the District Voting referendum that would have given the western half of the county 3 out of 5 seats on the board – and by 2008, an estimated 40% of the population a 3-2 seat advantage over the growing eastern half of the county.

Now to see how it pans out on the national stage…

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    The Orange districting referendum passed, by about 75/25. I think it’s a good idea to include the rural folks more, but I don’t think that’s the best plan they could have come up with.
