My thoughts on the Western Wake Partners wastewater dischargeMy thoughts on the Western Wake Partners wastewater discharge
[Feb. 24, 2011] I voted NO, but it passed 3-2. This has been a long and contentious process and I have heard from so many citizens who actually live in East and Southeast Chatham, I doubt I could count them. Only two of these citizens thought this discharge line was a good thing to add to southeast Chatham. By Mike Cross

Responses to 2004 questions from the Chatham CoalitionResponses to 2004 questions from the Chatham Coalition
[Mar. 7, 2008] The Chatham Coalition leadership has made it clear in recent emails and postings that they do not intend to support me. That is certainly their perogative as it is their organization and if they want to go a different way in 2008, I welcome them to the race and I hope we can keep it issue oriented and positive like we did when we worked together in 2004.

Board of Education meeting notes - 5/14/07Board of Education meeting notes - 5/14/07
[May 17, 2007] Our May 14th meeting was largely taken up with the first reading of new and revised personnel policies. The length of time taken to discuss the policies may have caused some visitors to leave but those revisions and confirmations were way overdue and long awaited for clarification purposes. This series was probably the largest segment we will have to discuss so those of you who became bored and left, please come back! By Gerald Totten

Chatham growth, options and 1% land transfer taxChatham growth, options and 1% land transfer tax
[May 9, 2007] I don’t think any of us need to be told that we are growing, but… the Triangle J-Council of Governments estimates the current population in eastern Chatham alone to be 34,000 and considering geographic location and expected growth, this population will increase to 117,000 by the year 2035!

North Chatham School PTSA meetingNorth Chatham School PTSA meeting
[May 9, 2007] What a pleasure to attend a Parent-Teacher-Student Association meeting last night with every chair filled! I didn’t count the attendees but the multi-purpose room was packed, a fact I’d like to see at every PTSA meeting I attend. Only through such well-conducted meetings and participation by the members and guests can sincere, effective dialog be had. Thanks to everyone who made that meeting last night. By Gerald Totten

Googling voodoo
[Mar. 27, 2007] Chatham Marketplace held its fourth poetry slam this weekend, and it was a subdued affair. Still vibrant, still pulsing, but lacking the frenzy of former events.

1% land transfer tax as state revenue? Now, it's a real possibility!1% land transfer tax as state revenue? Now, it's a real possibility!
[Mar. 25, 2007] Senator Clodfelter, Charlotte-Mecklenburg, Co-Chair of the Senate Finance Committee, has filed Senate Bill 1201. This Bill would increase the current deed stamp tax from 0.2 percent to 0.5 percent and would institute a 1 percent excise tax on mortgages. There would be No Voter Referendum! By Mike Cross

Chatham County water woesChatham County water woes
[Feb. 26, 2007] Apparently the eleven BOC meetings, over a twenty-one month period by our previous board, developing a water plan that will carry us through 2027 isn’t good enough. Patrick and I were part of that process and frankly don’t exactly know what to think about the latest results. By Mike Cross
