At the League of Women Voters candidates forum Monday, an audience member submitted a question asking Kevin Wolff why he was personally attacking Matt Czajkowski in the mayoral campaign. Wolff has been publishing a half-page newspaper ad calling on Czajkowski to drop out of the race so that he and Wolff can be allies on the council. Wolff's campaign mantra has been: "Keep Matt where he's at."
"I'm not having personal attacks against Matt. I'm attacking the position that he's taken to run for mayor," Wolff replied. "I like Matt. I helped him get elected. ... I hope Matt and I get to work together on the Town Council."
Czajkowski said he wished the campaign could focus on the issues. "Chapel Hill dearly needs that discussion," he said. "Mr. Wolff doesn't do some of the candidates for council justice who arguably very much share my views."
