The INDY Endorses Lydia Lavelle for Carrboro Mayor 10/18/17: Lydia Lavelle, a law professor at N.C. Central, is seeking her third term as mayor, having served in that capacity since 2014 and on the Board of Aldermen for six years before that. Under her leadership, the board has pushed back against regressive state policies to show support for immigrants and the LGBTQ community and encourage affordable housing via density bonuses. Lavelle has helped communicate Carrboro's values as an environmentally conscious, transit-friendly, and welcoming town. Her opponent, former Southern Rail owner Mike Benson, shares many of the same values and stresses issues fundamental to the town's business community, such as parking. But he can't match Lavelle's experience.




Orange-Chatham Sierra Club endorses Mayor Lavelle  10/9/17: "I am pleased to inform you that the Sierra Club has endorsed your candidacy in the Carrboro mayor race in appreciation of your demonstrated commitment to protecting the environment and the pursuit of environmental justice. ... Our endorsement sends a message of your strong support for the environment, your knowledge of environmental issues and your potential to continue building a strong community."
