After Tuesday's elections, candidates
winners and losers tended to agree
that limits on campaign expenditures
were important but that the size of their
expenditures didn't make a difference
in the final results.
The spending limits were enacted
about seven years ago, when too much
money was spent in campus elections,
said Elections Board Chairman Bruce
Lillie said he wondered if spending
limits were fair, and one Residence Hall
Association candidate, John Fanney,
also said he had doubts. Fanney spent
$ 1 66. 10 on his campaign, S percent over
the $160 limit for RHA candidates.
Candidates can go 5 percent over the
limit, but no more than that.
"They should seriously consider
raising the limits," Fanney said. "$160
for RHA does not go very far. It's good
to have limits, though."
The elections laws allow more spend
ing for campus-wide positions, such as
student body president and The Daily
Tar Heel editor. Candidates for those

Chapel Hill will see an increase in
single family homes and a decrease in
such multi-home developments as
apartments being built in the area,
according to one Chapel Hill official.
Stephen Sizemore, development
coordinator of the Chapel Hill Planning
Department, said: "The (town) council
has made a 180 degree change in the
way they feel about new developments.
Recently, the council actions tend to
support the development of subdivi
sions rather than condos and
This change of attitude has resulted
in the postponement of several pro
longed developments, he said. The only
new apartment construction going on
now is Timber Hollow, a 378-unit
development approved in June 1985,
Sizemore said. There are also several
complexes under construction on sites
that were approved several years ago,
Dan Fritz, president of the Durham
Chapel Hill Homebuilders Association,
said he agreed with Sizemore's thoughts
about the actions of the planning board.
"I don't know about the apartments
since we don't (build) that many," Fritz
said. "But I do know that townhouse
construction seemed to have dropped

Ryke Longest, who spent $363.39 on
his campaign for student body presi
dent, said spending limits were good for
"independents" like himself, who had
no large organization backing them up.
. "If someone exceeds the spending
limit, I don't see anything wrong with
that," Longest said. "But I don't think
it's impossible to run a campaign and
stay within the limits.
"Far too little attention was spent on
forums, far too much on politics. We
aren't the real world with smear
campaigns. ... I like to think here we
can escape that reality. The spending
rules are in the spirit of the honor code."
Longest said the elections laws should
be enforced in the case of T-shirts that

"Business is still very good," he said.

As for commercial developments,
Sizemore said there were only two on
the drawing boards right now: the
Europa Center and the much-disputed
Construction on the 100,000 square
foot Europa Center is scheduled to
begin sometime within the next two
months. Sizemore said he was not sure
when construction would start on the
Rosemary Square project, but he said
it must begin by early June if its permit
was to be valid.
"As far as I know, the development
(Rosemary Square) has been approved,
although there are certain conditions
that have not yet been approved," he
According to a report issued by the
Town Manager's office to the mayor
and town council, new housing starts
in Chapel Hill for 1985 were the lowest
in three years.
"I think the main problem is the
economy right now," Sizemore said.
There was a 10-year period from about
1971-72 until 198 1-82 in which there was
very little development in Chapel Hill.
"In 1982, the interest rates went
down," Sizemore said. "And there was
a construction glut which was basically
the result of a pent-up demand.

"If we'rexnot going to enforce the
elections law, and we say what hap
pened with the T-shirts is okay, we
might as well scrap it," Longest said.
"It might be a dangerous precedent. . . .
If we say, 'No campaign spending,'
that's okay. It's enough of a drain on
our academics just to campaign."
Lillie said that in some cases, $200
could be better used than $400.
"It's really refreshing to see a can
didate who makes up one poster and
one flyer, puts them up on buildings
and goes door-to-door," Lillie said.
Donald Tate, who ousted incumbent
Anna Critz for the District 15 seat on
the Campus Governing Council, spent
$7.45. Critz spent close to the $40 limit
for CGC candidates. Tate said his door-to-door
campaign was what won the
election, and Critz agreed.
"I got around and talked to people
one-on-one," Tate said. "I don't have
any qualms about not spending more.
My opponent's posters were up the first
week we got back from Christmas.
People just took them down and forgot
about them. Too much publicity can

glut) put a dent in the demand. But it

In 1985, the average price of a new
home in Chapel Hill was about $76,339,
compared to 1984's average price of
$81,126. In 1983 the average was about
$68,045. According to Sizemore, this
drop in home prices is due to a slight
increase in supply of single family
"Supply (for housing) has always
been lower than demand in Chapel
Hill," he said. "But lately the supply
has been particularly high for single
family housing. That supply will con

The development of new subdivisions
will cause a "spreading out" of the
Chapel Hill population into adjacent
areas, Sizemore said.
"There isn't enough land in Chapel
Hill to meet the demand," he said.

The endorsement decision was
difficult to make, Fanney said.
"Both candidates are qualified," he
said. "I based my decision on what

Fanney said he also based his

Jones said he and Fanney had
