2015 statement. In February 2015 and prior to the announcement of candidates for public office in Chapel Hill, the Chapel Hill Alliance for a Livable Town formed a CHALT Political Action Committee as a separate entity from CHALT, consisting of three members:  the treasurer, the assistant treasurer, and the custodian of books.  Its only function is to raise funds and to make disbursements to support any election activities of CHALT.

We formed CHALT-Political Action Committee so that our fund raising activities would be transparent and comply with North Carolina election law.  The political action committee is registered with the North Carolina State Board of Elections to whom we have sent the required disclosure reports.  The types of disbursements include (but are not limited to) CHALT yard signs, the printing of election materials in support of the CHALT-endorsed candidates, media advertising, meeting room rentals, and refreshments at campaign events.

Our supporters very much appreciate the generosity of those who gave money to bring a change to Chapel Hill leadership.  The contributions, large and small, helped us educate the electorate and pay for the materials necessary to get the word out. Contributions came solely from Chapel Hill area residents — all with a Chapel Hill zip code. Per the October 19th pre-election filing, the average contribution was about $133. There were no contributions from developers, local organizations, or out of state organizations.

While CHALT Political Action Committee is allowed by law to contribute up to $336 to a candidate for Chapel Hill elected office, no such contributions were made to individual candidates. The contributors to the CHALT Political Action Committee are listed in the disclosure reports, which are available at for all to see. **
