Despite who wins what (with the exception of the aforementioned stadium tax in ilm), I mostly want to see record numbers at least 10% more than the 2008 record setting election. I want to see people more engaged and involved.
Exercise your right to vote--it preserves your right to complain.

If only the city would be more open to look somewhere else, other than downtown Wilmington. Why pay $14+ million for a chunk of land that does not even meet baseball regulations, not to mention the lack of parking etc. I like how Wilmington is keeping a low down on the group that offered 33.5 acres for free. Problem is, the property is over the bridge, but directly across from PPD & the projected site. Wilmington does not want the community benefits partially going to Brunswick County.
I'm just waiting for Carolina Beach's Hilton & Harris Teeter to pop up - does anyone have a time frame on that one?
Of course I don't have a vote in NC either so I guess its not too important what I think.

"When the common good of a society is regarded as something apart from and superior to the individual good of its members, it means that the good of some men takes precedence over the good of others, with those others consigned to the status of sacrificial animals." Ayn Rand
