Charlie Reece to Durham: Look for progress made and plans to achieve more

Like all three incumbents seeking re-election to the Durham City Council, Charlie Reece has attracted criticism from three candidates seeking to replace him.

In response, Reece asks voters to look at what’s been accomplished over the past four years he’s been a council member. And to examine plans already hatched to create more progress in Durham.

In step with all six candidates, Reece is especially tuned into the need to reduce crime, expand affordable housing and jump start job growth.

“We make the decisions that are consistent with our own values and with what we think is right,” Reece said. “Every four years, the people of Durham get to tell us whether we have made enough right decisions.”
