Wake County Commissioner candidate Jack Nichols is making a direct effort to link incumbent Paul Coble to the student assignment controversy on the school board.
In this new campaign mailer, Nichols calls Coble, the GOP candidate, "Commissioner NO!" One example he cites is on education.
Nichols, the Democrat, says Coble "supports School Board's rash approach to student assignment and opposes impact fees on new growth to pay for school construction so property taxes can be kept in existing classrooms."
In contrast, the mailer says that Nichols is:
"An original sponsor of teacher pay supplements, Jack values magnet schools, and supports finding a third way on student assignment based on data and building consensus so we can focus on student achievement."
Nichols also notes his endorsements from Wake NCAE and three former Wake schools superintendents. While not named in the ad, they're Del Burns, Bill McNeal and Bob Bridges.
