ORANGE COUNTY – Hillsborough resident Bonnie Hauser is the latest to announce she will seek a seat on the Orange County Board of Commissioners.
Hauser told WCHL she was not available for an interview until Wednesday. She says she will seek Commissioners Chair Barry Jacobs’ at-large seat. Jacobs has not announced whether or not he will seek a fifth term.
One of Hauser’s major projects in the county was the formation of Orange Voice in 2008, which opposed the construction of an airport and waste transfer station in the county. She has also been involved with the local social justice group, Justice United, and is a strong proponent of improved transit between Chapel Hill-Carrboro and Durham.
Tune in to the WCHL Morning News on Thursday to hear comments from Hauser on her intention to seek the County Commissioner seat.
