A little under a year ago, Graig Meyer was appointed to the NC General Assembly for district 50.
Appointed. Not elected.
District 50 now has the opportunity to remove Meyer before he does any more damage. Check out his opponent, Rod Chaney.
Since that appointment, he’s seemingly pushed nothing but far Left liberal ideas and towed his party’s line. His escapades include supporting the fundamentally flawed and experimental Common Core standards. Meyer claims to oppose over-testing, yet Common Core is jam-packed with that. The guy is clueless.
I watched Meyer spout debunked pro-core talking point after talking point at an NCGA Common Core legislative research committee meeting this past Spring. He ignored the pleas of the parents who came to speak out and instead, championed a set of copyrighted standards and the unaccountable D.C. trade groups who own them.
Dear Rep. Meyer – 40 of the 60 ppl who testified at LRC OPPOSED the standards. #Politicizing #hb1061 #stopcommoncore #ncga

Not surprising, since Mr. Meyer only represents like-minded people and likes to play politics with our kids. Check out this rather hateful tweet. Does Mr. Meyer realize his attempt to smear opposition includes parents, teachers and students from ALL walks of life? Apparently not:

This email from Al McSurely is very close to electioneering for a particular candidate, which a non-profit like the NC NAACP is barred from doing. As an attorney, McSurely should know this.
Scroll down to the bottom. I’ve got a bit of commentary to add.

Earlier this week, I started a look at the NC-23 Senate race between Valerie Foushee, the current appointment to the seat, and Mary Lopez-Carter, the challenger.
In the previous installment, we covered Valerie Foushee. This installment will cover Mary Lopez-Carter.

More politicking being done in our schools.
A citizen on Twitter alerted me that CMS (Charlotte-Mecklenburg) schools are still pushing the sales tax referendum out to parents. It should be questioned if school resources were being employed to do so.
Here is the tweet containing a picture of the letter parents received from the J.M Alexander principal. It invites parents to join CMS Superintendent Heath Morrison at a meeting about the proposed sales tax increase:

These letters were not the only form of communication used.
Robo-calls were made as well. Continue reading
