Chapel Hill Council member Sally Greene won't run again

Staff writerJuly 6, 2011 

Chapel Hill Town Council member Sally Greene announced on her blog Tuesday that she will not seek reelection this fall.

Greene was elected in 2003 and served two terms on the council. She will support Mayor Mark Kleinschmidt's reelection bid and has endorsed Council member Donna Bell's reelection and Planning Board member Jason Baker's election campaign.

Greene highlighted some of the achievements she was a part of on the council including the establishment of the Orange County Partnership to End Homelessness, seven neighborhood conservation districts, and an inclusionary zoning ordinance which mandates affordable housing provisions for new developments.

"All of this, and much more that we have accomplished since 2003, is the product of tremendous collaborative work by citizens and residents of our community who believe in working together through government for the common good," she wrote. "It has been an absolute honor to be part of this important work."
