Elizabeth Sharp



Roots in Chapel Hill's Past,
a Stake in its Present,
& a Commitment to its Future.

Chapel Hill is unique among college towns. University and community life happen side by side - seamlessly, joyfully integrated.  Residents benefit from the youthful energy of student life; students benefit from the stable environment of a healthy, happy town. That's possible because of a delicate balance of businesses, services and spaces that meet the needs of both our long-term residents and the young people for whom Chapel Hill is a springboard to the rest of their lives. 

In order to not only preserve, but strengthen, that balance, it's imperative that our town government take actions and create policies that will sustain a Chapel Hill we can be proud of.  We must be clear-eyed about economic realities, honest about our goals, and innovative in our thinking.  We have the fiscal and intellectual resources in Chapel Hill to be a town that the rest of the country looks to as a model for how to solve municipal challenges.  With the patience and creativity to build solutions that will work for decades to come, we CAN reach our common goals.
