Davidson Working to Represent All


Letter to the Editor by Jamezetta Bedford (submitted personally and not in county commissioner

Having served with Andrew Davidson on the Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools Board of Education, I enthusiastically endorse his re-election to the Board! He brings much needed experience and integrity to a Board dealing with difficult interpersonal relationships. As chair of the Special Needs Advisory Council and parent of two sons in the district, he understands the needs of students and teachers. Because minority students and students with disabilities experience extraordinary disproportionate discipline, he champions a policy change to eliminate out-of-school suspensions (except for gun violations) and replace that with wrap-around services for students and families. Andrew’s professionalism and ability to work with all is much needed on the Board. He proposes updating technology and data reporting to give teachers real time valid data to improve their instruction. Please join me in voting for Andrew.

Early voting begins October 16 at the Board of Elections in Hillsborough with Chapel of the Cross next to the planetarium, Carrboro Town Hall, and the Seymour Center on Homestead Road as sites beginning Saturday, October 19.

  1. I read somewhere that Louis Tortor withdrew from the Chapel Hill-Carrboro School Board Race on 9/18/2019. Is that true?
