Recently the Eastern North Carolina Civic Group (ENCCG) held a straw for candidates running for the position of North Carolina Superintendent of Schools. Keith Sutton was the overwhelming choice. Keith has built his career as an education leader, advocate and public servant on the foundation of civil rights and justice for all. For the past decade, he has served as a member of the Wake County School Board where he and his colleagues are focused on increasing access to healthy schools and closing the achievement gap.
The straw poll also considered the candidates for US Senate. NC Senator Erica Smith was the overwhelming choice for US Senate.
