Five Orange County elected officials arrested at Monday protest

CHAPEL HILL — A Carrboro alderwoman hopes five Orange County officials’ arrests at the General Assembly this week encourages other local government leaders to take a stand.

“I would love for other elected officials across the state to be inspired to speak out about how business is being run in Raleigh and about some of the bills that have been put forward,” Alderwoman Michelle Johnson said Tuesday.
