As I lifelong resident of Chapel Hill, I am proud to support Commissioner Penny Rich. She has proven herself to have the backs of the citizens of Orange County for nearly two decades of living here.
As commissioner since 2012, Penny has fought for Orange County’s economic development from Day One. Her first vote as commissioner was for the Morinaga candy factory. This single vote brought 90 new jobs to the county along with needed tax revenues. She also strongly supported the Mebane GE plant expansion which now employs over 500 people and has become an international beacon for economic improvement. Penny Rich will continue this impressive history of advocacy for Orange County’s fiscal health when reelected in November. Vote with me on March 15 for Penny Rich, county commissioner, District 1.
