I recently had the opportunity to speak with James Vose about his vision for the future of the town of Pittsboro and I liked what I heard.

I believe that Mr. Vose has a good handle on what is important to the citizens of Pittsboro, including clean and safe drinking water, a reasonable approach to the management of the growth of the town and supporting policies that encourage a vibrant small business community, particularly in the historic downtown.

I now understand that Mr. Vose and I are in agreement that it has been strategically short-sighted for the town to subordinate the goals of the town that relate to upgrading the aging utility systems (utility plants and collection/ distribution systems) that support citizens and businesses who have resided in Pittsboro for decades, while elevating the goal of creating new infrastructure to support future citizens and future businesses that do not yet exist. I am confident that he can and will find a way to work productively with developers without leaving the current citizens of Pittsboro behind.

As a small business owner himself, I know that he will be attuned to the needs of small businesses in the community and an advocate for small business initiatives. He also made it clear to me that diversity and inclusion are important issues for him and that he will represent all of the citizens of Pittsboro to the best of his ability. I admire James Vose’s willingness to take on the vital role of Commissioner for the town of Pittsboro and I recommend him to you with the utmost confidence and enthusiasm. I hope that you will find time to go to the polls this November and cast a vote for James Vose.
