I work for the State of NC and I can tell you for a fact that no one that I work with will vote for her again since she illegally took money from teacher salaries (after they had signed a contract) and froze step increases. My wife has been teaching for almost 3 years and is still on a level one pay-scale. She doesn't deserve this, especially after she had to student teach for 6 months for free (while having to pay rent, food, car, and student loan expenses!) Gov Perdue also constantly pushes down mandates for schools and teachers, but then cuts their pay, and allows blue cross blue shield (NC state health insurance Monopoly) to raise premiums and cut benefits slowly every year. She is sending a clear message, discouraging teachers and future teachers to find a different career path NOT IN EDUCATION. She is probably afraid and ashamed to come to Wilmington because of citizens asking her tough questions.
