Welcome to a new member of the blogosphere: Rhonda Lennon, the District 1 representative to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg school board, has launched her own site. To my knowledge, she's the first board member blogging.
Lennon has already been posting her views on Facebook, and she says she created a blog because it gives her more space to elaborate. Her first post is on a dinner she hosted with incoming Superintendent Heath Morrison, and she says she's working on items on per-pupil spending and the board's travel budget. She says she plans to post twice a week.
I hope it goes without saying, but I'll say it anyway: I'm simply pointing readers to another avenue for information and discussion, not allying myself with Lennon or endorsing anything she posts. If other board members dive in, I'll be sure to let you all know.
