Members of the Carrboro Community
Coalition and the Association for a Better
Carrboro are disagreeing about a
Coalition-sponsored candidate forum
held Monday night that Association can
didates for mayor and the Board of
Aldermen did not attend.
At the forum, the Coalition endorsed
board candidates Doug Sharer, Nancy
White and Braxton Foushee and mayoral
candidate Robert Drakeford, all Coali
tion members. .
Members of the Association for a Bet
ter Carrboro did not attend, because,
they said, the Coalition-sponsored forum
would have been slanted against them.
Carrboro Coalition member and alder
man Steve Rose said he felt the public was
cheated because the Association's can
didates "boycotted the forum" and two
independent candidates also did not at
tend. ' .' -
"The best election is with informed
voters," Rose said. "They're cheating the
public out of information."
Rose said the Coalition had sponsored
the forums for the past six elections and
that they had received "excellent par
ticipation from all candidates in the
races," not just Coalition candidates.
The Association candidate are "ob
viousldy wanting to avoid questions when
the prfc wrmlrf K thr I?rc c;H :
Association member Richard Ellington .
said the ABC was not running! from the
In past forums, "when other than
Coalition candidates have attended, it's
been a public ridicule of npn-Coalition
candidates," Ellington said. "(Attending
is) asking someone to hit you in the face
with apje.V .' V
"Anything that either side sponsors is'
going to have some element of bias," Ell
The Association has asked the League
of Women Voters to sponsor a forum to
provide an atmosphere where neither side
had an advantage, Ellington said.
Rose said Coalition members called
each of the candidates to inform them of
the forum, and then wrote letters to them
after the election's filing deadline.
Rose said ABC members had indicated
they would attend the forum.
Mayoral candidate Bill Pressley did not ;
promise to attend, Rose said. Pressley is
not amember of either group.
Jim White, an independent candidate
for the Board of Aldermen, said he did
not get a letter, Rose said, and the Coali
tion member who tried to call him could
not get in touch with him.
Ellington said he telephoned . local
" radio station WCHL Monday morning
and read a statement explaining why
Association candidates would not attend
the forum that night. v
