CHAPEL HILL – Chapel Hill Town Council candidate, Sally Greene says the gap between the very wealthy and the very poor is very disconcerting.

“One issue that I have worked for two terms on is very important, and that’s affordable housing,” Greene says. “On Wednesday night, Donna Bell and I will be presenting a draft affordable rental housing strategy that she and I have been working together with a group of citizens on on a mayor’s committee over the summer.”

WCHL’s Ran Northam spoke with Greene about her seeking election to the Town Council and how she believes she’ll best serve you.

Nine candidates are contending for four seats on the Town Council.

Greene is currently serving the remainder of Penny Rich’s term on the Council.

She says there are a number of recommendations they have been working on to combat the town’s affordable housing issue.

“One has already been presented to the Council for the first time, and that is a low-income housing tax credit project for which we will potentially give ten acres of town land to a non-profit from Raleigh called DHIC which is in the business of providing that type of housing,” Greene says.

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