Rep. Hardister’s budget lament

Here’s an interesting comment you might have missed from Republican Rep. Jon Hardister from Guilford County. He now wishes he had voted against the budget the General Assembly passed last summer that cut funding for education and left teachers without a pay raise.
Hardister made the remarks at an education forum  in Chapel Hill last week.
“I voted for the budget last year,” he said. “And I since have come to regret that vote, since I’ve been out listening to parents and visiting classrooms and experiencing firsthand how hard the teachers work.”
It’s nice that Rep. Hardister now realizes his mistake. Too bad he didn’t listen to parents and teachers before he voted to slash school funding.
