I encourage you to re-elect Penny Rich to her Orange County commissioner seat. Although I recently moved from Chapel Hill after almost 10 years in the community, I still own property there and have a deep connection to the area.
Penny has been a strong and committed advocate for justice and equity in the community. She is consistently present and available to her constituents, eager to hear what we have to say and dedicated to making sure we have adequate information about county activities. Her efforts on the Rogers Road task force have been important in developing an infrastructure to provide services to that community and to create the Rogers Road Community Center.
She has been a passionate supporter of public transportation to aid in reducing the county’s carbon footprint. Penny has helped to protect Orange County’s natural habitats by encouraging land acquisitions via the Lands Legacy Program, and she is also a strong supporter of the county’s voluntary land preservation program. If you care about the environment, public education, and social justice, please re-elect Penny Rich.
