Is the New Durham Dead?

Record #:
People are wondering if the “new” Durham is dead after conservative candidates swept the recent Durham primary. This is a setback for liberals who have held a majority on the City Council for the last 12 years. The reasons behind this are that the liberal coalition has failed to live up to its campaign promises. They also have failed to govern together, and the power of bureaucracy and private business interests are threatening to replace the coalition with conservative candidates.
