Theresa Yon and Maggie Jeffus Edition of "What could the News & Record Editorial Board be thinking?"

"Yon in District 59

Republican Theresa Yon, ...both thoughtful and fiercely independent.

Yon, ...says she is willing to break ranks with her party when her principles dictate.

"She's a conservative and may likely win,
so hopefully she'll advocate for some of the state level spending what we want"?

...she favors providing more resources for the Auditor's Office as a smart investment.

As for education, Yon, a former High Point University professor, proposes that at least 65 cents of every education dollar be spent in the classroom.

...Jeffus, 75...questions the practicality of Yon's "65 percent solution" for school spending...

What is the percentage?

Should the percentage be more than 65?

What is 35% of the money being spent on?

...She supported important Triad initiatives such as the High Point Market and the Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.

Does the Editorial Board really, really like the nano?

...Yon favors term limits and has signed a bonded pledge to serve no more than three terms if elected.

She deserves a chance for her first term on Nov. 2."
