Another round of endorsements in Wake schools race

Posted by on Tue, Aug 4, 2009 at 12:28 PM

The Take Wake Schools Back political action committee has endorsed its slate of Wake County Board of Education candidates: Chris Malone in District 1, John Tedesco in District 2, Deborah Prickett in District 7, and Debra Goldman in District 9.

These are the same candidates endorsed by right-leaning Wake Schools Community Alliance.

According to a press release issued by spokesperson Gail Marold, Moulder, who also is the media point person for the Wake County Republican Party, “All four candidates passionately advocate Take Wake Schools Back’s mission of bringing common sense back to the Wake County Public School System on behalf of children and families; focusing on community schools, system accountability, flexibility, transparency and excellence.

The PAC was co-founded by Dennis Berwyn, former deputy political director of the N.C. Republican Party. Previously, he worked on the 2004 campaign for George Bush and Dick Cheney and the 1996 campaign for Bob Dole and Jack Kemp, according to Berwyn’s online resume.

“District 2 was a difficult decision for our PAC, because we believe that Cathy Truitt also has the expertise, forward-thinking ideas and leadership qualities that the WCPSS desperately needs. We hope Dr. Truitt will be a valuable asset to the WCPSS in another capacity.”
