In a press release today, the Democrats call Malone "part of the Tea Party-backed School Board Majority." They accuse him of using "his less than stellar record of results on the board to launch himself into a race for NC State House in the 35th District."
"You know, people have often asked why people like John Tedesco with zero ties to the Wake County Public School System would seek a seat on the School Board," according to the press release. "After two years of Ron Margiotta, Tedesco and Malone it is becoming more and more evident that they sought seats on the board to push the Tea Party and special interest supported education agenda and build a launching pad for future runs for office."
The press release accuses the GOP school board majority of "pushing a political agenda without regard for the cost to our students or our teachers."
After more complaints about the board majority, the Democrats go back to criticizing Malone.
"Chris Malone may think that North Carolina needs conservative solutions but voters know that we need solutions that get people back to work," according to the press release.
We look forward to the elections in October and November of this year, and then on to November of 2012, when the people of North Carolina will show unequivocally that they are ready for public servants who put people before party and results before rhetoric."
