Low turnout for Durham primary, major mayoral candidate suspends campaign

Durham voted in its municipal primary last week. But only 10% of Durhamites voted, and a major mayoral candidate dropped out afterwards. Chronicle Editor-in-Chief Leah Boyd breaks down the primary results and shares how you can vote in Durham’s upcoming general election. Then, Chronicle reporter Chloe Nguyen talks about what the end of the CDC’s eviction moratorium means for Durham. She fills listeners in on how the arrival of big companies like Google and Apple impacts Durham’s housing market and how experts view the state of eviction in Durham. After that, Chronicle Sports Editor Jake Piazza lays out the COVID-protocol for Duke basketball and the Cameron Crazies. He also shares an update on Duke football and men’s and women’s soccer. So, uh, can we get another fall break? Excited to see a bunch of old folks reliving their glory days this parents’ weekend. Host and producer: Jake Sheridan Graphic designer: May Fu October 12, 2021.
