will lose his influential position as
co-speaker of the House.
“Every mainstream church
has signed on businesses and
governments all over the state,”
Legislators against the death
penalty weren’t denied re-election
for their stance, even though oppo
nents sometimes painted them as
“soft on crime,” Kinnaird said.
“If you voted for it, it was not a
The House might still put up
resistance for personal reasons,
Kinnaird said. Four of the 120
representatives have had a family
member murdered. But Kinnaird
said she thinks public support
might outweigh opposition.
Kinnaird said she is less hope
ful about legislators’ willingness
to regulate how special interest
groups can court elected officials.
Reformers ask for less bribery and
more accountability, but Kinnaird
said courts probably will have to take
away the legislators’ lobbying gifts
before they relinquish them.
“It’s just a part of the culture,” she
said. “A series of little victories over
time is probably all you can do.”
But Don Carrington, vice presi
dent of the John Locke Foundation,
said Kinnaird isn’t always fighting
against the grain of state politics.
Some of her initiatives, including
her anti-lottery stance, are main

incentives puts her in a different type
of minority, one more populated by
Republicans than Democrats.
Kinnaird wants to stop the
state’s tradition of using money
to lure businesses to the area, and
she might become part of a largely
conservative movement to do so,
She abides by personal beliefs
instead of political ideology and has
demonstrated her willingness to
defy party leadership, he added.
“Lots of people get labeled, but
you still need to look at things
issue by issue,” he said. “She’s an
Also high on Kinnaird’s to-do
list is the elimination of electronic
voting; higher standards for “natu
ropathic” doctors, who rely on
natural methods instead of mod
ern medicine; clean records for
reformed, nonassault felons after
about 10 years; and arrangements
for biological parents to see chil
dren put up for adoption.
Kinnaird said her forward
thinking represents her district
well. “Nobody’s more progressive
than Orange County,” she said.
Durham, Wilmington and
Asheville sometimes side with
Chapel Hill’s proposals, but
Kinnaird said getting legislation
through is often like pulling teeth.
“It’s a hard sale if it comes from
Orange County,” she said. “I spend
a lot of time convincing and per
Sen. Cecil Hargett, D-Onslow,
said Kinnaird communicates her
From Page Three
ideas exceptionally well.
“She’s successful at times in con
vincing and persuading others. She
makes us think, re-examine our
values and what we believe in,” he
said. “She’s sort of a conscience.”
Kinnaird, who is an attorney
in Chapel Hill, relays her strong
convictions while maintaining
good relations with her colleagues,
“If she was a man, I’d call her
a gentleman,” he said. “She’s not
abrasive in style.”
Kinnaird said the key to passing
fringe legislation is knowing who
has to be convinced. There can be
no illusions that good legislation will
win unanimous support, she said.
“You go there as a freshman
thinking this will help society, this
is important and people will want
to do it. Wrong.”
The business community is
against Kinnaird’s push for a more
environmentally friendly disposal
of electronic waste such as comput
ers and iPods. “(Business lobbyists
are) opposed to anything that puts
a burden on business, and they’re
very powerful,” she said.
She said power often correlates
with how much interest groups fund
legislators’ campaigns, adding that
the influence of these interests often
quiets the voice of the powerless.
“People who are on death row
don’t give a lot of money to cam
paigns,” she said.

Blackwell’s platform calls for green

The Young Democrats also want
a candidate who will promote race

issues, Tinti said.
Ballard noted that students must
take a broad approach to diversity.
“We have to expand our idea of
diversity to include race, ideology,
religion, geography and socioeco
nomic backgrounds,” he said.

Although the commissioners
