Heather Losurdo on Tony Tata potentially leaving because of "different philsophical beliefs"

Wake County school board candidate Heather Losurdo is still saying that Superintendent Tony Tata could be out of if incumbent Kevin Hill defeats her, but she's changing how it could happen.

Also during her interview today on the conservative Frank Roche Show on WRDU, Losurdo pitched the benefits of why a parent like her should be on the board instead of a non-parent like Hill. She also charged that a Hill victory could lead to busing of high-achieving students to low-achieving schools.

On her radio ad, Losurdo has charged that a Hill victory would create a Democratic majority with enough votes to fire Tata. With Hill repeatedly saying he would not support firing Tata, Losurdo implied today that Tata might emulate Del Burns and resign because of philosophical differences with a new majority.

Donna Williams has raised more than $40,000

Wake County school board District 6 candidate Donna Williams has narrowed the funding gap between her and Christine Kushner despite having gotten off to a late start.

A new campaign finance report filed this week shows that Williams has raised $41,370.83 as of Sept. 26 with $18,761.70 on hand. Through that same time period, Kushner had raised $50,406.93 with $31,383.11 on hand.

The biggest donors in Williams' new report are the $1,500 from the Northern Wake Republican Club and $1,000 from Dr. James Fulghum.

Heather Losurdo wearing recent attacks as "a badge of honor"

Wake County school board candidate Heather Losurdo says she's wearing all the attacks she's gotten lately from liberal groups as "a badge of honor."

In an interview Sunday on the conservative Frank Roche Show on WRDU, Roche quipped that Losurdo "is under the gun, under fire, on the front lines." Roche, who has donated $100 to her campaign, asked Losurdo if she wanted "to push back against all of the attacks."

"I've begun to wear it actually as a badge of honor," Losurdo responded with a laugh. "There are groups out there spending thousands and thousands of dollars attacking me for, I guess, for believing in the Constitution, individual liberty and freedom."

Cynthia Matson asking for more campaign donations

Wake County school board candidate Cynthia Matson says she would "love another $10,000 (in campaign donations) by Monday."

Matson made the pitch for more campaign cash during an interview today on the conservative Frank Roche Show on WRDU. She said she's raised about $10,000 but will need more money to defeat Jim Martin in District 5.

"I would love people to give us some more donations because then I can reach more individuals throughout the county and throughout my district because really when I get on that board they may not be able to vote for me in my district but when I'm elected I'm voting for them," Matson said. "So I'm asking people across the county if you believe in choice, if you believe in fiscal efficiency, you believe in having the community represented and you want someone who knows how to read a budget, manage people and get things done, please support my campaign financially."
