CHAPEL HILL – Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools board member Mia Burroughs is hopeful to make a move to the County Commissioners, and she says she’s not going to stop working for schools if she gets there.

“I think that a little bit less than half of the county’s budget goes to our public schools—both the Orange County school district as well as Chapel Hill-Carrboro,” Burroughs says. “I really think it’s important to have someone on the commission who has really close experience with how those are spent.”

She says she also wants to make sure the budget benefits from diversity in the tax base.
