Apparently the advantage incumbency and the advantage that having a woman’s name on the ballot usually brings wasn’t enough to spare District 1 from the expense of a mailing.
Both Yvonne Barnes and Anna May Miller have sent out mailings.
If their challenger Robert Nowak has, no one has shared it with me.
Miller has managed to capture the gold ring.
Hers was delivered today, at least in Algonquin.
The day before the election. Can’t get much better than that.
Miller lists her committee assignments, plus these goals:
- Improved transportation
- Fiscal responsibility
- Managed growth
- Groundwater protection
- Preserving our quality of life
Barnes emphasizes her experience on the Cary Village Board (three terms), her integrity (“caring, honest and dedicated public servant) and professionalism (small business owner, bachelor’s degree in business administration).
If either woman loses, consider it a big upset.
Lurking in the background is the question of filling out the Alliance for Land, Agriculture and Water’s (ALAW’s) conflict of interest statements.
Only seven of 27 candidates have not yet filed the ethics statements. Interesting that two of those seven are from District 1.
Perhaps that will change if the Democrats slate one of more opponents after the primary election and they make property and business disclosure an issue.
Of the three candidates, only Barnes has sent hers in.
