Open forum tackles housing, other issues

June 16, 2009

At today's open Forum, discussion centered on the merits of two housing projects. One was a plan to locate a homeless shelter in Druid Hills. The other was a plan to rebuild Boulevard Homes on West Boulevard as a public-private mixed income project. The debate was lively, and there was no consensus on either topic among the 17 people present.

Attending the Forum Tuesday was Nathaniel Cooper, left, now of Fayetteville, who said he returned to the Forum to advise that he had been asked to consider running for the U.S. House in the 7th District against seven-term Democratic Congressman Mike McIntyre. Cooper said he had returned to the Democratic Party after his unsuccessful bid to get on the ballot as an independent for election as N.C. Commissioner of Insurance.

Cooper asked Forum members to visit his website, which says he is running for the U.S. Senate next year.
