Lori Barnes: Show us the money

February 22, 2014 

Regarding Phil Kirk’s Feb. 16 letter “A positive first step for teachers”: As a veteran teacher and critic of Gov. Pat McCrory, I’d like to make a deal with Kirk.

Secure that $100,000 salary for me and my colleagues and not only will I stop criticizing the governor and the current legislature, I’ll put signs in my yard and vote a straight Republican ticket in 2016.

I’ll hold my breath.
