To the editor:
I am writing this letter in support of Christy Judah, a candidate for the Brunswick County School Board.
I have known Christy for almost six years and know her to be an honest, hard–working, caring and extremely intelligent person.
Christy spent 30 years in the North Carolina education system, the last l8 years in Brunswick County, and has a master’s degree in education and counseling.
She has authored several books and is chief of the Brunswick County Search and Rescue, which she established in September 1999 working with and training search and rescue dogs and handlers. The Brunswick Beacon selected her as one of the Ten Most Interesting People in Brunswick County in 2007.
It is my understanding Christy’s opponent, Catherine Cooke, sent her child to a private school last year and is sending her child to a public school out of the school district in which she lives this year. If this were the case, why would she want to sit on the school board?
Also, if her husband, Marty Cooke, wins re-election as county commissioner and Catherine is elected to the school board, would this not be a conflict of interest?
Considering Judah’s background and experience, I can’t comprehend why anyone would vote for anybody else for this important position.
We owe it to the children of Brunswick County to elect Judah to the Brunswick County School Board.
