In the last month or so, I’ve covered the Iredell schools and their bond vote issue. Now that it has passed, it looks like there is a moving of goalposts being attempted.

In 1995, Director Bryan Singer brought the gritty, twisted, and intelligently devised film The Usual Suspects to the screen, introducing us to the elusive character “Keyser Soze”. Throughout the film, the plot continuously reinforces Soze’s status and identity as legendary, … Continue reading
WRAL’s Cullen Browder dug into the questionable spending habits of former Granville Superintendent Tim Farley. The report included some pretty interesting stuff.
Here’s the meat of the story:
WRAL Investigates reviewed statements for the five credit cards and found thousands of dollars in technology purchases, convertible sports car rentals, two spa charges at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, an online order for a 12-pack of Heineken BeerTender Tubes, an Amazon Prime membership, non-itemized receipts from restaurants such as Dugans Pub, Atlantic Beer Garden and Whiskey Priest, and other purchases that appeared questionable. – WRAL, 11/5/14, Convertibles, beer tubes, spa: Auditors probing Granville schools’ spending
I sincerely hope Mr. Browder doesn’t stop there.

Over the last year, I wrote fairly extensively on some of the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals races. The highlighted race amongst those articles was the Supreme Court Justice race, specifically the Chief Justice spot.
That race was between Chief Justice Mark Martin and Judge Ola Lewis. Chief Justice Martin won that race handily with almost 73% of the vote which translated to 1,741,421 votes for Martin to Lewis’s 667,772.
Ervin, Hudson and Beasley all hung on to their seats. The Beasley race was particularly close with only just over 3,200 votes separating them:
SUPREME COURT ASSOC. JUSTICE (Beasley)
NAME ON BALLOT PARTY BALLOT COUNT PERCENT
Cheri Beasley 1,228,397 50.07%
Mike Robinson 1,225,185 49.93%

I hope folks have been paying attention to the Wake County Commissioner races. I’ve shown who the Democrats have put up in this race and what they stand for quite clearly. This time let’s take a look at one of the other candidates, Rich Gianni.
I had the pleasure of meeting and speaking with Mr. Gianni recently. I made the point to ask him about what he feels makes him qualified to run for a spot on the Commission.
