The Charlotte Observer has this little blurb.
Tricia is an assistant principal at East Mecklenburg High School. More later.
Here's a bit that will clue you in to her personality[Sorry, forgot to link to the CO for the quote]:
In their sole joint appearance, the four Charlotte Democrats vying to replace former N.C. House Speaker Jim Black agreed on most things at a Monday night forum. They would all try to revitalize east Charlotte, stop gang violence and get more state money for schools and courts.
So they sought to differentiate themselves in other ways.
"Your vote should be based on experience living in and knowing the district," said Lloyd Scher, a former Mecklenburg County commissioner. He was alluding to rival Tricia Cotham, who just got a home in the district last week.
Whenever Cotham spoke, supporters of Darrell Bonapart held up signs in the back of the media room at East Mecklenburg High. "We have qualified people already living here," one read.
Cotham jabbed back.
"No one is entitled to this appointment because they feel they have served the party by continually running for public office and losing," she said. Scher, Bonapart and the fourth candidate, Jack Flynn, all lost their last races. Cotham has never run.
She could have said something to back up her desire to serve the people of Charlotte, but instead she chose to attack. Tells me a lot about her character. You can decide for yourself what it means to you.
If she was really involved in the nitty gritty of campaigning, she would have more respect for what it takes to stick your neck out there and work hard on a campaign. Flynn and Bonapart have at least shown a desire to serve in the past. Darrell ran for City Council and Jack Flynn tried to unseat Sue Myrick. Scher has served in elected office.
Maybe she'll do a great job, but the selection process leaves a bit to be desired. The Observer did say she had the most detailed agenda. We'll see.
