Recently Commission Chairman Candidate TOM WORTHAN stopped by Burke’s Grill across from Chapel Hill Middle School on Chapel Hill Road for a delicious home-cooked meal. Burke’s offered Tom the opportunity to post his campaign sign in the window. As we were leaving Tom turned around and with his super powers, proved once and for all that he’s for Transparency in Government.

If you haven’t been to Burke’s Grill, try them on Catfish Friday and be sure to order some Mac ‘n Cheese!

Thank you Dwight and Peggy Burke for the political sign opportunity! You deserve a hug :-)
