(a list of Carrboro supporters follows):


“I have been privileged to work with Mayor Lavelle to make the Southern Branch Library [to be located in Carrboro] a reality. Our shared goal would not be realized were it not for her staunch advocacy. Carrboro is very fortunate to have such an intelligent, passionate, dedicated and caring leader.”  Alex Brown, President, Friends of the Carrboro Branch Library

“She works for the lives of ALL Carrboro residents by being accessible and dedicated to the growth and wellness of the community.”  Anissa McLendon, Carrboro resident

“I admire both your big-picture, well researched approach to problem-solving and your friendly, approachable nature!  Good qualities in a mayor and neighbor!” Anna Hoffmeyer, Carrboro resident

“I have deeply appreciated Mayor Lavelle's efforts to work with our Legislative delegation on issues of shared concern. She was one of the leading voices in the efforts to overturn the bigoted HB2. She has demonstrated that she truly represents the values of Carrboro.”  Representative Graig Meyer, North Carolina House of Representatives

"Mayor Lavelle has been an ideal mayor for me as a resident of the Town of Carrboro.   I can't count the number of times I have gone to the Mayor with an issue that needs a quick and decisive resolution.  Public works, public schools, traffic, sidewalks and crime - Mayor Lavelle has been focused on them all.   I cannot imagine a more dedicated and resourceful public servant to lead our town.   She hears from all sides and cuts through the nonsense.    Thank you Mayor Lavelle for dedicating yourself to Carrboro 24/7 for so many years....and I hope so many years to come!"  Laura Hayes Morgan, Carrboro resident

"Lydia Lavelle has been a responsive, thoughtful and active mayor. I especially appreciate her thoughtful leadership. She seeks out new ideas and different perspectives, weighs the alternatives, considers possible outcomes and develops reasonable positions. That's why I'm supporting her re-election campaign."  Margot Lester, Carrboro resident

“Mayor Lavelle has been a champion for LGBTQ people not only in Carrboro but across the state. She is a tireless community advocate who understands the real challenges our community faces.”  Matt Hirschy, Interim Executive Director, Equality NC

“As a public school teacher, I have been impressed by Lydia Lavelle's accessibility to my students.  As part of a Social Studies Unit on Government, Lydia Lavelle both visited our classroom and gave us a tour of her office at the Carrboro Town Hall.  She has shown herself to be responsive to student needs and committed to serving ALL members of our community.” Melissa Barry, Teacher

"Lydia Lavelle's steady leadership has helped Carrboro navigate challenging issues and move forward. Under her leadership, Carrboro has identified a site for a library, expanded our greenway network, and developed a clear affordable housing strategy for the town. She runs meetings in a way that lets residents know she values their participation. I'm looking forward to voting for her again this year!"   Patrick McDonough, Carrboro resident

“Since the beginning of her work as Mayor, Lydia has been a great person to interact with. She is genuine in her interest in the community. We meet regularly and always she is very genuine, supportive and honest in the ways she can improve the community in Carrboro. Specifically, every time we have had issues with the Latino community, Lydia is there. She doesn't hesitate to do the right thing and to be there up and front. It is easy to have a relationship with Lydia. She is very responsive and always very thoughtful. I feel appreciated by her, not only as a person, but also as the director of a Latino non-profit and off course as an organization. I will always remember one day that she said to somebody ‘we have our own Hispanic center, why to go to other organizations?’ Thank you Lydia for all your support to the community, to our organization and to the community in general.”  Pilar Rocha-Goldberg, CEO/Director of El Centro"Lydia Lavelle is ALL about community: young and old, gay and straight, old timer and newcomer, people of all colors and faiths. Most of all, Lydia is a tireless advocate for the poor and marginalized and for community members who don’t often have a voice.”  Susan Romaine, Director of PORCH, and Chair of Orange County Living Wage

"For four years, Mayor Lavelle has been an effective, forward thinking, and progressive leader for the Town of Carrboro.  She is the right person at the right time to move Carrboro forward at a time when state and national politics present challenging situations for local governments. She will continue to provide strong and stable leadership for the town that she calls ‘the most progressive in North Carolina.’” Senator Valerie Foushee, North Carolina Senate
