Berger’s tactics as the leader of the NC Senate have been nothing short of detrimental to public schools in North Carolina despite his silky rhetoric.
In this election year, Berger does have a strong opponent running against him: Jen Mangrum.
If you braved the cold temps in January and attended the Class Size Chaos Rally in Raleigh, you probably ran into Jen Mangrum. She was there to lend support.
If you came to the May 16th Rally and March, then you probably came within feet of her. She was there.
Mangrum is an educator. In fact, she is an educator of educators and is the daughter of … yes … educators. In the times that I have been in her company, I have found her accessible, compassionate, and straightforward.
Recently, a judicial board ruled her ineligible to run in District 30. She has appealed. She released a video explaining her appeal, her evidence, and her residency. She offers a valid case.
SHE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO RUN!
Judge for yourself. But what happened to her might get your blood pressure up.
