CHAPEL HILL – Chapel Hill Mayor and candidate for re-election, Mark Kleinschmidt says, as mayor, he’s going to work to make sure the town thoughtfully implements the Chapel Hill 2020 plan in an important time for development.

“We began the process with an idea of how things might work, but it’s going to be an involving process,” Mayor Kleinschmidt says. “So, that’s going to be a challenge for many people.”

Mayor Kleinschmidt is running unopposed.

He says the best way the town is going to grow and continue moving forward is by feeding off the education community.

“If we can resist the urge to be attracted just to conflict and remember that we are a learned community; we are a community that can take lessons from the past and apply them to our challenges in the future and be respectful of each other’s opinions,” Mayor Kleinschmidt says. “You know, with 55,000 to 60,000 people, we’re not going to have unanimity on every decision that we have to make as a community.”

Between now and Election Day, we’ll be previewing each of the candidates one-on-one.
