Wake School Board member turning pundit?

Sometimes you have to wonder what makes elected officials do the things they do. Case in point: Wake County School Board member Debra Goldman.

Today, at a moment in which Wake County schools are going through a momentous and controversial reassignment process (a moment so crazy that it seems to have crashed the Wake Schools website — at least at this writing), Goldman chose to send out her second substantive tweet in four months.

The subject: Bev Perdue’s poll numbers.

To which, all a body can say is “huh?”

This is not say that there’s anything wrong with politicians tweeting, of course. In general, the more the merrier. But usually, the tweets have some plausible connection to the politican’s realm of responsibility.  Even John Tedesco seems to grasp this concept. 

Is there something Goldman hasn’t told us? Does she share Tedesco’s ambitions for higher office?  is she gonna’ join us pontificating pundits as a regular blogosphere inhabitant? 

But what the heck? Whatever the case, bring ’em on Debra. We look forward to hearing what you have to say — at least with respect to the Wake County schools.
