There are many important issues at stake with this election including Dix preservation, mass transit, zoning, tax-increment financing, public schools, neighborhood issues and development in general.
While all the seats are up for re-election, only a few of the races are contested. These are Districts A and B (north Raleigh) and the two at-large seats (one of which is a re-election bid by Russ Stephenson). It is important to consider that these two at-large seats will be voted on by the whole Raleigh population (North Raleigh and outside-the-beltline will be voting along side people downtown). So if you’re concerned about appropriate and beneficial development and legislation then your participation in voting for these two at-large seats is very important.
