As early voting begins in our state today, I wanted to encourage you to look at James Barrett, candidate for NC Superintendent in the Democratic Primary. While it would be easy to follow an endorsement for a down-the-ticket race like this, or to simply choose a woman or person of color, I encourage you to consider why James makes an especially strong candidate.
I believe James Barrett **possesses the skills** to actually make a difference advocating with the legislature on the issues and implementing change in a large department. His experiences in community social action, on the school board, and effectively managing teams in a tech firm, have helped him hone the skills needed to make this job more than a figurehead post.
