Re: “Vote! The INDY’s endorsements for races in Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill and Carrboro

As a parent who has been very involved in the CHCCS school district for 10+ years and watched many BOE meetings, I am baffled by the indy's School Board endorsements. Yes, Rani Dasi you got right, but how could any reporter doing his or her due diligence possibly overlook Margaret Samuels?

Did you even watch the same school board candidates' forum I did? Margaret Samuels and Rani Dasi had clearly done their research and nailed it, Streater and Saussy were also very articulate and well-informed. Some other candidates clearly had not done their homework, had not attended school board meetings, seemed misinformed about what the board can and cannot control, and didn't know what "twice-exceptional," is, despite the fact that the forum was co-sponsored by SNAC. If this is the best they can do when trying to get elected, how diligent or effective can we expect them to be on the BOE?

Have you considered looking at what candidates have actually done vs. what they say they are going to do? Margaret Samuels has worked for YEARS to advocate for our most vulnerable students, and understands the complexities of trying to improve our school system so that all students are better served. I am truly mystified that you are not endorsing her.

I will spread the word that the Indy is not a trustworthy source for political endorsements. You have lost all credibility with me.
