Supreme Court chief justice candidate James Exum

vote. Jack Cozort won with 53
percent, and K. Edward Greene won
with 54 percent, beating Republican
incumbent Robert Orr.
Branch's announcement in June
that he would retire from the chief
justice seat set off a chain reaction
that led to a spirited and competitive
campaign for the North Carolina
judiciary, long a virtual Democratic
Exum, the senior associate justice
on the court, was expected to be
appointed to the seat, following
tradition. Martin said the longstand
ing tradition of appointing the senior
associate justice was meant to keep
the the control in the Democrats
hands. When Martin appointed
Billings, Exum stepped down from
the court to run against her.
A poll published Nov. 2 gave
Exum the lead over Billings. The
poll, published by The News and
Observer of Raleigh and The
Winston-Salem Journal, gave Exum
43.3 percent and Billings 28.7 per
cent, with 27.9 percent undecided.
Both candidates have had long law
careers. Billings graduated from
Wake Forest School of Law in 1966,
and worked as a district judge from
1968 to 1972. She taught at Wake
Forest and worked in the Billings
and Burns firm with her husband
before being appointed to the court
by Martin on Sept. 4, 1985.
Exum was a Morehead Scholar
at UNC at Chapel Hill. After
graduating in 1951, he attended law
school at New York University. He
was on the Guilford County Super
ior Court bench from 1967 to 1975,
and from 1975 to 1986 he was an
associate justice with the supreme
court. He has also been a visiting
professor with the UNC School of
Martin made the judicial races one
of his priorities for the fall campaign,
speaking on behalf of Billings and
the two appointees who replaced
Exum and Billings.
Because the Code of Judicial
Conduct decrees that candidates for
judgeships can discuss little but their
records and qualifications while
campaigning, CCC ran an independ
ent campaign portraying the Demo
cratic nominees, especially Exum, as
From staff reports
In a strong show of support,
Chapel Hill citizens voted in an $1 1 .8
million bond referendum for town
The referendum contained five
separate allocations: $4.0 million for
a new public library facility, $2.5
million for the widening of NC 15
501 and other road improvements,
$2.5 million for parks and recreation
space, $2.0 million for an addition
to the existing town meeting room,
and $0.8 million for a new fire station
and training facility in the southern
section of town.
The vote spread on the town
meeting room was the narrowest,
with the greatest margin of 137 yes
votes occurring in the Eastside
"The town meeting room issue is
the one people know the least
about," said Charles Foskey, chair
man of the Chapel Hill Citizens for
the Nov. 4 Bond. "They can envision
what a new fire station would mean
to the town, or what the widening
of N.C. 15-501 would look like, but
they have no way of knowing how
crowded the town meeting room
Town Council and Chapel Hill
Bond Task Force member Julie
Andresen said she felt that the voting
"1 think the'outcome of the bond
referenda was very good for two
reasons: the town was able to get
much information out about the
bond through the task force and
these needs have been around for a
long time," Andresen said.
According to the council, the
burden for Chapel Hill taxpayers
will be an 11.8 percent increase in
taxes over the next three or four
years beginning no sooner than 1 987
88. The bond will be repaid over a
In county elections, incumbent
Orange County Sheriff Lindy Pen
dergrass won the Orange County
Sheriffs race, by a landslide vote of
20,330 to 4,533, with 100 percent of
the vote in.
The challenger, John Gainey, was
the only Republican candidate in all
of the county and district races.
"He felt he was qualified and could
compete," said Josephine Barbour,
chairman of the Orange County
Republicans. "It's rather difficult to
run in a county where you're out
numbered four-to-one in voters."
There are 35,400 registered Demo
crats in the county and only 9,000
Republicans, Barbour said.
The only other contested race was
for two supervisors to the county
Soil and Water Conservation Board.
Three candidates, W. Chris
Hogan, Lee Simpson, and Charles
W. Snipes, were on the ballot.
Incumbents Hogan and Snipes
emerged victorious, with 12,007 and
10,771 votes, respectively.
Snipes, current chairman of the
board, has served one term.
"1 think my re-election is based
on the grounds of the things that I've
done in the district in the past four
years," he said.
