Bob Orr is the One to Watch

NC Gubernatorial candidate Bob Orr (R) is indeed the one to watch.

So far, Orr is the only candidate that has come out publicly thus far to take some public stands on how to reform government education in this state. I’m listening. I think you should too.

Last week, he stopped by the News & Record offices and had a brief chit-chat with editorial writer, columnist and my friend and former colleague Doug Clark.

Here’s an excerpt from what Orr told Clark, via Clark’s blog:

“Orr isn’t satisfied that the state has taken more than ‘patchwork’ measures to implement the court’s Leandro directives. He does credit Gov. Easley’s More at Four program for addressing some problem areas, but otherwise he hasn’t seen much more than ‘Band-Aids, catchy titles and press releases’ from Raleigh.”

Orr has my ear, so far. And in my opinion, he is the one to watch.

E.C. 🙂
