I held my first fundraiser, Bubbles and Cupcakes, on Sunday and we had so much fun.

They commented that housing affordability is going to be THE issue in the upcoming election and that they are pushing for a Penny Tax for Cary.
Let’s talk about the reality of affordable housing in our area, with math!
