Wake County Republican Party Chairwoman Susan Bryant is citing a testimonial in support of neighborhood schools to motivate her members heading into the school board runoff election.
In the latest issue of the Elephant Express today, Bryant says she's sharing a letter she received from a fellow Wake County Republican. The letter writers talks about loving walking to his neighborhood schools as a child.
Now years later, he writes that "my wife and I quickly learned that they would never have the same great experience we had." He complains about reassignment, the possibility of being "bused somewhere across town to an area we would never know."
"On the news, we watched Kevin Hill vote against the new plan, and our right to choose our neighborhood school and that angered us," according to the letter writer. "Even the two Democrats not running for office this time voted for the plan. We cannot let this stand. We will be supporting Heather Losurdo for District 3. Please hear us.”
