Marvin Saltzman (b. 1931) and I have known each other more than 35 years. We never met in the classroom, however; he was teaching studio and I was studying art history. But since I have been writing about art, we have spent many hours discussing the state of art in general and his art in particular.
Incumbent Durham County Sheriff Mike Andrews and would-be District Attorney Brian Aus are among the candidates endorsed by the North Carolina Sheriff Police Alliance.
The organization’s 12-member board held a political screening Friday and recommended Andrews and Aus, as well as:
- Charles Blackwood for Orange County Sheriff.
- Incumbent Doretta Walker for her judicial seat.
- Challenger Steven Storch for the judicial seat currently held by Pat Evans.
The Durham Committee on the Affairs of Black People on Saturday released its slate of endorsements for the upcoming primary election.
The Durham People’s Alliance wants some new faces in the school board, but favored incumbents in other contested races in the upcoming May primary election.
