I did not sign up for the Chatham Democratic party email listI did not sign up for the Chatham Democratic party email list
[Jun. 3, 2011] Mr. Randolph Voller and his political party should be made to create and use their own mailing list and not piggy back off of the Chatham Chatlist. By Wilma Yanaria

Some sensitivity, compassion and understanding are called upon to include all citizens of Chatham County
[May 26, 2011] Mr. Kirkman's comments in the May 22 Chatham Chatlist, are titled "the common good." That is a principle of most governments. All fine and good. However, when taxes increase by more than 50 percent in six years and more than 70 percent in ten years, that good is threatened. The people who built this county and are now retired with modest pay, by comparison to those who recently moved here, are hurt by rising taxes. By Tom Glendinning
 
Chatham County streamlining will get rid of an unnecessary and cumbersome boardChatham County streamlining will get rid of an unnecessary and cumbersome board
[May 26, 2011] What's going on these days in Chatham County government? The so-called "streamlining" continues. It's easy to lose track of where we are in what could more accurately be described as a mudslide. A public hearing has been scheduled for June 6 on proposed amendments to the county's Watershed Protection Ordinance (WPO), which would return the functions of the Watershed Review Board (WRB) to the county's planning board (PB). By Caroline Siverson
 
The right to vote comes with personal responsibilityThe right to vote comes with personal responsibility
[May 23, 2011] In the recent discussions on early voting we’ve heard a lot about the right to vote and how we should do everything possible to protect that right and make it easier for people to vote. Unfortunately there’s been little discussion of the idea that with rights come responsibilities. By Donna Kelly
 
By not supporting common sense rules to prevent fraud those in opposition seek to encourage ballot riggingBy not supporting common sense rules to prevent fraud those in opposition seek to encourage ballot rigging
[May 22, 2011] Randy Voller and I can argue back and forth on this subject until doomsday, and I am sure we will not agree. However, this lively discussion has addressed several points and should have provided enough food for thought to enable informed voters to arrive at their own conclusions regarding early voting and voter fraud. I could respond to many points, but John Dykers has addressed some of them and so I will just make a final comment on a few. By Joe Kingley
 
Anti-law enforcement forces attack fizzles out at Chatham County commission meetingAnti-law enforcement forces attack fizzles out at Chatham County commission meeting
[May 20, 2011] After sending out thousands of emails hoping to get hundreds of people to storm Monday's county commission meeting, what did the anti-law enforcement forces land up with? Not much! Just a couple dozen people to rehash the same old dog and pony show we saw in 2009. What did it look like?
It looked like a Chatham Coalition reunion meeting. By Tom West
 
Just what does the Chatham County Democratic Party support?Just what does the Chatham County Democratic Party support?
[May 18, 2011] I want to thank Randy Voller for explaining to the voters of Chatham County just where the Chatham County Democratic Party stands. In a recent Chatlist post he stated, “In fact, the Chatham County Democratic Party categorically opposes the agenda that Art Pope and the Koch Brothers have paid for in North Carolina and America.” By Donna Kelly
 
I believe we should encourage voter turnout as much as possibleI believe we should encourage voter turnout as much as possible
[May 18, 2011] To quote Matt, "I believe that the email below is an excellent example of someone "muddying the waters with irrelevancies.".........If I were to bring up poll taxes, literacy tests, intimidation, and the other tools that conservatives have used to keep people from voting, I could be accused of doing the same thing. Maybe we should all make a point of avoiding "muddying the waters." By Linda Bienvenue
 
Exceptional parent story contest has a winnerExceptional parent story contest has a winner
[May 18, 2011] Project Proud Families would like to congratulate Angela Glover for winning our story that was put on to create awareness about all the extra challenges that families face in our community when they have a child with “different abilities”. We also believe that regardless of their age they are someone’s child. Angela was nominated by her friend Amy Bulbrook. By Holly Rickman
 
We need to keep a close eye on the Chatham County School AdministraionWe need to keep a close eye on the Chatham County School Administraion
[May 18, 2011] This is just one more reason I hope the public will keep a close eye on the Chatham County School Administraion. After months of arguing that the budget cuts in the schools adhere to the BOE stated goals of making the cuts as far from the classroom as possible and achieving a mere 8.58 cuts to the central office I saw the position below being advertised for the central office administration.
 
Let's take our responsibility of voting a little more seriouslyLet's take our responsibility of voting a little more seriously
[May 16, 2011] Once again our left-leaning compatriots seek to muddy the waters with irrelevancies. No matter what event takes place there will always be the risk of situation arising that can spoil them. If those on the left wish to have a level playing field, I suggest they concentrate on ensuring that those that vote actually have the right to vote, and those that take them to the polls do not have undue influence over the way their “charges” vote, either by suggestion or coercion. By Joe Kingley
 
Two weeks of early voting will disenfranchise millions of North Carolina votersTwo weeks of early voting will disenfranchise millions of North Carolina voters
[May 16, 2011] Early voting and the access of voters to open and hassle free elections is of paramount importance. We all benefit when our elections involve the greatest numbers of citizens. Unfortunately, the North Carolina State Senate has a bill before it that will restrict as opposed to expand democracy in North Carolina. By Randolph Voller
 
The fact of the matter is that Americans are pretty lazy about votingThe fact of the matter is that Americans are pretty lazy about voting
[May 16, 2011] I believe that the email below is an excellent example of someone "muddying the waters with irrelevancies." The question on the table is whether or not we should allow early voting. The citizenship of voters and allegations of vote tampering are important issues but clearly beside the point. Irrelevant. By Matt Porter
 
It is now easier for people of a certain party to vote at least onceIt is now easier for people of a certain party to vote at least once
[May 16, 2011] I would like for "Burgermeister" (or maybe "Senor Alcalde") Voller to read Joe Kingley's post and tell us what parts of it (if any) he disagrees with. Joe Kingley comments (seriously, not jokingly) on assuring that people who vote are actually entitled to do so, and that voters are expected to get out of their chairs and go to some specific place to vote, even if it may be a little inconvenient. By Ed Williams
 
Wake-Up Wednesday connects people, businesses, services and community
[May 14, 2011] Last month Wake-Up Wednesday celebrated three years of connecting people, businesses, services and community. Since the meeting is still welcoming newcomers, it remains valuable for people who've attended before and turnout has been robust.
