Durham Soil and Water Conservation District Supervisor

Danielle Adams

Danielle Adams has long been an advocate for Durham. She’s served on the Soil and Water Conservation Board of Supervisors for eight years, and her expertise and knowledge of the issues facing the county’s agriculture community are invaluable tools.

She argues that the city and county need to address water quality and says she will engage elected officials to address those very issues. Her opponent, Michael Van Sickle, hasn’t waged much of a campaign. Regardless, it’s hard to imagine a candidate better suited to this office than Adams.

Durham County Schools, Library, Durham Tech, and Museum of Life and Science Bonds

Yes to all

The four bonds on this year’s ballot are seen as a package deal, which is true, in a sense, in that they all seek to further education. The largest chunk of the $170 million package is $90 million earmarked to renovate Northern High School and Eno Valley Elementary. The library bond will fund a much-needed rebuilding of the downtown branch. And the bonds for both the Museum of Life and Science and Durham Tech will provide expanded learning opportunities to individuals at all stages of life. These worthwhile, long-overdue projects deserve your support.
