"I am therefore a little perplexed at their endorsement of Menendez. Rodrigo Carreon, who opposes Menendez in this open seat that is being vacated by Cynthia Knox, did make it to the forum, as he did when he served on the Board’s bond committee meetings, as he does in nearly every regular school board meeting, as he does in every other kind of meeting in and around the county.
I tend to lean toward Carreon. He may be all over the map when he makes a case, but we all know where his heart is. . .
>This just in from Half-empty regarding the recent FBEF endorsements. We agree 100% with your assessment! Good luck Mr. Carreon!
