Failed leader of the Chatham Coalition tries to give current board members advice

Pittsboro, NC - I just thought it very interesting that Mr. Starkweather took it upon himself to tell the conservatives on the current board of commissioners exactly what they should be about as conservatives.

I have lived in Chatham County my entire life under board of commissioners filled with Democrats. The conservative Democrats of the Bunky/Emerson era sure took it on the chin from the liberal wing of the Democrats. They then gave us the "Chatham Coalition" board of commisioners lead (in the wings) by Mr. Starkweather.

I must not have been paying attention.

I can remember the out of control spending and hiring and increased taxes sponsored by the "Coalition" board of commissioners, but I don't remember the surge in educational excellence or the increased employment opportunities that he seems to think they brought us.
