A blue wave swept Mecklenburg County in the November elections, including an unprecedented takeover of the Mecklenburg County Board of Commissioners. The Board now seats 9 Democrats and no Republicans, after 3 longtime incumbent Republicans were voted from office.
One of those Republicans was in District 5, a traditionally conservative district in south Charlotte. The new commissioner, Susan Harden, has a Masters Degree in Economics, and a Ph.D. in Education– and is currently an Assistant Professor of Education at UNC-Charlotte. She gives Charlotte Real Estate Talk the scoop about school funding, revaluation, and her work with America’s future teachers.
