The Independent is backing Cathy Truitt in the runoff for the District 2 school board seat.
In the endorsement, the liberal weekly says neighborhood schools are going to happen after last week's election results. The Indy calls the runoff a question of "whether the new board will manage the shift to neighborhood schools carefully or precipitously, and without regard to the consequences for low-income neighborhoods."
The Indy says Truit "promises to look before she leaps, and she may be a useful brake on the four other antidiversity members."
The Indy says that John Tedesco "is by his own description a politician who'll deliver fast action, without thinking carefully first."
The endorsement isn't a surprise considering how Indy columnist Bob Geary wrote a column last week urging moderates and progressives to back Truitt.
