N.C. GOP spending nearly $11,000 to help Heather Losurdo

A campaign finance report filed Monday shows that the North Carolina Republican Party has spent $10,858.23 in campaign mailers to help Wake County school board candidate Heather Losurdo.

One example is their "Wake County Voter's Guide for School Board," which says that Losurdo "supports using proximity as the #1 priority for the school choice plan, supports neighborhood schools, and believes in listening to parents." The mailer also says Losurdo "supports Superintendent Tata and his leadership effort" and "will use family friendly and common values on school board issues."

It says that Kevin Hill "will revive forced busing: voted against the Bi-partisan School Choice Plan" and "voted against hiring Superintendent Tata." It also says he was "a leader in the Majority on the school board when 'Wacky Wednesday' and having School on Memorial Day were allowed."

Kevin Hill says a vote for Heather Losurdo means John Tedesco will become board chair

Wake County school board member Kevin Hill is now going negative on challenger Heather Losurdo in this new campaign mailer.

In the mailer, Hill lists his education and professional experience. He then contrasts it with Losurdo's, saying she's "a 3-year Wake County resident," "president, Northern Wake Republican Club" and "trained as an Air Force mechanic."

Hill cites comments in this April 15 N&O article about how Losurdo supported the board majority. The mailer says "A vote for Losurdo = A vote for John Tedesco for Chair," accompanied by a picture of the two standing side by side.

Hill had avoided mentioning Losurdo in previous mailers. But he's now found himself facing a steady stream of attack ads from Losurdo, Civitas Action, the Northern Wake Republican Club and the state Republican Party. (I'll get around to posting these and the ones from Common Sense Matters and the N.C. Futures Action Fund too.)

UPDATE

I've put in a new higher-res image of the campaign mailer.
