Seven More Days

We’ve come down to the last seven days.

In one week, you the voters of Guilford County will make your choices in the at-large School Board race (along with other races). Next week’s ballot is important, and obviously, national media is descending on North Carolina in anticipation of what the results are.

You already know what’s at stake. But next week can go one of two ways…we’ll either be victorious next week and will march into the Summer in a whole new School Board race, or it will be the end of the campaign. But it will never be the end of the campaign to take back our schools and engage in a communicative dialogue for better public education.

Now’s the time for you to be heard. Signs are still being stuck in the ground countywide. I’m still accepting donations in anticipation of a victory (or a second place showing) next Tuesday. I’m assembling a pool of who’s available to work a poll next Tuesday. I will participate in a forum this Thursday, May 1 at 6pm at the GSO Historical Museum downtown, sponsored by the Concerned Citizens of Northeast Greensboro. And schedule-permitting, I would like to possibly have one more virtual town-hall meeting prior to election day (stay tuned).

And election night…I haven’t yet made plans…stay tuned as well.

It’s been one heck of a campaign, and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. But it’s not over yet! We have seven more days to get our progressive message of change in our schools-hope for our children-putting our children first across to every segment of Guilford County. I hope I can count on you for that support. It is needed. Thank you to all of you who are in support of this effort. Whether you’ve been on board since 2006 or have jumped on board recently, all of us share a common vision…to reform our schools, to put our children first and to restore hope in our system. It can be done. It WILL be done. And it all starts with your vote next Tuesday.

More importantly, it starts with you punching Erik “E.C.” Huey on your ballot.

Thank you again.

  1. Talk about educational rip-offs. I just heard it reported on an Atlanta radio station that an Atlanta area school district has just hired John Thompson, formerly of Pittsburgh, as superintendent. He will receive an annual salary of $285,000 and have 107 days, almost 1/2 of the school year, at his disposal to be absent on vacation or consulting. I understand that he will also have an expensive car at his disposal and a bodyguard. Bodyguard?? This district is one of weakest in the country with a huge number of failing students, and it hires a superintendent that will be on the job 1/2 of the time. Go figure. We need to pay close attention to what the GCS school board does with the next super here, and not give up the ship like they did in Georgia. Public Education, Inc. is a profitable business.
