Tea Party Tedesco seems to have an inside track:
Today's message, obtained by WRAL, hints at tense discussion among board members over legislative proposals to give the county ownership of schools and redraw school board districts, two powers that currently rest with school boards in North Carolina. "What the General Assembly giveth, they can clearly take," Tedesco warns the board.
Apparently this is not just a Wake County issue. Not sure what this all means, but I do know one thing: as a voter, I use vastly different criteria when selecting a county commissioner candidate vs a school board candidate. They're not interchangeable, and neither are their (current) powers and responsibilities. I can't say I'm speaking for all voters, but I'd say "most" is a safe bet. Republicans might think this is clever, but it could bite them in the ass. Hard.
