CARY, N.C. — The Cary Town Council voted Thursday night to kill a proposal for forced annexation just before a scheduled public hearing on the matter, officials said.

The proposed annexation covered 10 areas and 160 homes.

Before the council met, some homeowners in the outskirts of Cary held a protest outside the Town Hall.



Organizers called it the “Cary Tea Party.” Protestors waved signs and dressed in Native American apparel. They said the event was held to let officials know that “taxation without representation is unjust” – the same statement made famous by Americans during the 1773 Boston Tea Party.
