  •  What's the backstory (0+ / 0-)

    Friends of mine received robo calls by Weihbrecht for Caggia.  What's up with that???

    •  Weinbrecht endorsed Caggia. (4+ / 0-)

      It is on her website and all over her ads. She has been endorsed by a few others Democrats in the Town of Cary. Apparently, she works well with Democrats. I can't testify to it, since I don't know her. But I don't trust anything with a (R) following their name. They all start as moderate, but can't stand up to their Tea Party friends, and before you know it they are Tea Party.

    •  Two republicans running (0+ / 0-)

      There were two republicans running for the slot and no democrats.  The local (progressive) indy paper liked both, as neither are as fiercely partisan as the previous wave of Republicans on the board.  The two split the endorsements from both sides. Cagglia seemed to have gotten more tea party type endorsements, which is why I voted Fletcher.

      The past history of the Wake school board is that it's mostly non-partisan.  You generally get moderates from both sides who work together.  The tea party takeover of 09 was a completely different type of board member.  Hopefully we've moved back to the original working board.
