Even loyal right-winger decries legislature’s interference with Wake school board
It doesn’t happen often, so relish the chance to say the following: Rick Martinez, the arch-conservative columnist for Raleigh’s News & Observer is right — or, at least , mostly.
Martinez’ column this morning rightfully takes the General Assembly to task for its absurd meddling in the business of local governments – most notably the ridiculous plans to rig the elections for the Wake County School Board and cancel the Dix Park deal.
While the column is far from perfect — Martinez slices the baloney too thin and attempts to distiguish between the election rigging plan and the equally absurd effort to give Wake Commissioners control over school facilities and also includes inaccurate digs at the current school board’s policies and the substance of the Dix deal — it’s on the money on the basic premise.
Let’s hope his friends on the far right aren’t too drunk with power to pay attention.
