2013 BoC Candidate Profile: Meighan Carmichael

HILLSBOROUGH – Hillsborough Board of Commissioners candidate, Meighan Carmichael says while development is one of the top priorities on which Hillsborough will be focusing, she says, if elected, she will fight for smart growth.

“Hillsborough is a dynamic and great small town,” Carmichael says. “It’s thriving, and it’s a prosperous place. But, it has a very different feel than other areas in the Triangle. I think that everyone in Hillsborough is interested in keeping the charm of Hillsborough while making sure that we’re growing in a smart way.”

WCHL’s Ran Northam spoke with Carmichael about her seeking election to the Board of Commissioners and how she believes she’ll best serve you.

Three candidates are contending for two seats on the Board of Commissioners.

Carmichael says she’s not going to use the commissioner seat as a platform to push her own agenda, but as a place to be a voice for the people.

“I want to hear their voices,” Carmichael says. “I want them to be a part of the conversation. I think it’s important for the town for us to actively seek those voices out.”

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

2013 BoC Candidate Profile: Kathleen Ferguson

HILLSBOROUGH – Hillsborough Board of Commissioners candidate, Kathleen Ferguson says, if elected, she’ll work on balancing growth while working to improve the lives of those living in poverty. However, she says she’s afraid of what the North Carolina legislature might do to municipal abilities.

“All of those together I think will potentially give us opportunity for change, opportunity for creativity and innovation, but on the other hand quite a few challenges,” Ferguson says.

WCHL’s Ron Stutts spoke with Ferguson about her seeking election to the Board of Commissioners and how she believes she’ll best serve you.

Ferguson says she sees herself as a change she’s like to see on the board because of her connection to the Hillsborough community.

“I have a great passion for our neighborhoods,” Ferguson says. “I live in Hillsborough Heights; I have been involved in the community at the neighborhood level for over ten years. And, one of the things I think have been missing in Hillsborough Town Board is representation of citizens living in neighborhoods.”

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