Two UNC students to campaign for
By SALLY PEARS ALL
This November, two students
will try to give the University a
stronger voice in Chapel Hill
municipal government by running
for election to the Town Council.
Charles Balan, a junior from
Chapel Hill, and Rob Friedman,
a senior from Holbrook, New
York, have filed with the Orange
County Board of Elections office
Balan said he had decided to run
because he felt that students views
did not carry enough weight with

"The students are still not being
listened to," he said. . . I'm
running (because) I want to have
students needs and concerns met."
In particular, he cited the town's
noise ordinance as evidence that
the council wasn't willing to take
student concerns into considera
tion. The council's restrictions of
noise levels for fraternity parties
were unreasonable, Balan said. -
"There's very little compromise
between the Town Council and the
fraternities," he said. "The Town
Council has got to realize that this
is a college town.
"I'm trying to get the Town
hot ham and cheese, sausage,
meatballs, and our own zesty Italian
Express. So don't settle for precooked,
lukewarm styrofood when you can get the
hots at Subway!
Council aware that not every
'student is an 18 or 19-year-old
freshman who wants to party,"
Balan added. "There are some
students who love Chapel Hill and
want to make it a better place
while they're here."
Citing the recent controversy
over UNC's new land-use plan,
Balan said he wanted to improve
the relationship between the town
and the University.
"There needs to be more coop
eration between the University's
plans and the town's," he said.
"There needs to be more mutual

Balan also said he was running
for council out of concern over
what he saw as excessive develop

Jim Chris, owner of Ye Olde

seen a big increase in business. "It's
been a steady increase, but nothing
to brag about," he said, adding
that he had noticed more custo
mers coming into the restaurant
during the weekend.
Carolina Pride on Franklin

in sales, according to assistant
manager Gary Kayye. Both tour

Balan said that he thought the
town's land-use plan could be
improved. The council passed the
plan last summer.
"I don't see the plan working,
so maybe it needs to be looked
over again and revised," he said.
"I want to keep Chapel Hill a nice
small town with a good projection

"All the athletes like Chapel Hill,"
he said. "It's the epitome of living.
Everything is on Franklin Street."
Festival business has also been
good for several of the bars in
Chapel Hill. According to Tim
Poe, late-night manager at
Colonel Chutney's, groups of
athletes and coaches, and techni
cians from ESPN have recently
been joining the evening crowds
at the restaurant.
"They come in after the events
at night," he said. "It's been a
good, steady increase in business."
Purdy's co-owner Steve Lock
yer said the nightclub had been
getting big crowds since the Fes
tival began. "WeVe had a large
increase in business," he said.
"Last Thursday was our biggest
night we probably had at least
100 workers for the Festival and
another 100 athletes here."
