I wrote a story in Sunday's N&O about the Chapel Hill-Carrboro school board elections.
Greg McElveen, the only incumbent in today's race, called in and wanted to clarify some of his statements on the school budget cutbacks.
The story says that McElveen said "he isn't troubled by budget cuts - quality programming now means lower costs later. "If you pull from the right set of resources and provide teachers with support they need, you can be successful even with limited funding," McElveen said."
McElveen said to me that he indeed recognizes "the difficult challenges associated with the budget cuts," but that he is "not deterred by these cuts in my pursuit of excellence for all of our children."
