Politicians At Work, Continued During the 2020 community comment portion of the public hearing, Rob Maitland, a Chapel Hill lawyer, came up with a concept that caught on with one fan, at least. Maitland posited that the town has 10% who are always against development, 10% who are unreservedly for development, and 80% who fall somewhere in between. Councilman Czajkowski liked the idea so much that he asked Maitland if he could get a bumper sticker that read “I am the 80 percent.”

Board members discussed the possibility of establishing the magnet at Carrboro Elementary, Seawell Elementary or Morris Grove Elementary instead of FPG, which would have required a whole new set of public hearings.
