Re: “North Carolina races

Two solid, progressive candidates are running in this Democratic primary ... While the Indy is giving its "nod" to Jeanne's opponent, we have to disagree with one thing besides the “nod.” See end of this note.
They write, “His opponent, Jeanne Milliken Bonds, is endorsed by the State Employees Association (SEANC). She's also backed by former N.C. Supreme Court Chief Justice Burley Mitchell, who knows her from when she was deputy director of the state Administrative Office of the Courts and his special assistant. Bonds is a former Knightdale Town Council member who served for seven years as mayor pro tem and was briefly Knightdale's first woman mayor. She has an impressive record of volunteer service (e.g., United Arts Council of Raleigh and Wake County board member) and no doubt would serve well in this seat if elected.”
The Indy says “But “the opponent” is already serving well.” The NC Center for Public Policy puts his effectiveness at 85 of 119, the bottom of the rankings for effectiveness. Her opponent himself said “I abided by the adage of being seen and not heard”; and when you look at his effectiveness among Democrats in the House, he is 62 of 68, again near the bottom.

Jeanne is a top ten … always!
