XYZ - a prototype for a proposed Voter PAC for Chapel Hill, NC


XYZ is a group of citizens who believe that Chapel Hill can and should do better.  We feel that the current Town Council has mishandled our tax dollars throuh its questionable management of budgets and contracts, and that it has failed to provide proper leadership to guide decisions regarding the Town's growth and development.
