Diana Lightfoot appointment

" Lightfoot showed up unannounced at the Baptist Children's Home in Thomasville last week and introduced herself as the new division director, stopping by for a site visit. Staff at the facility wouldn't let her in because they were unable to verify her appointment.

1. Welcome to the *new* *improved* N. Carolina (should be on all official state signs on the highways).

With the ** listing the names of the entire Republican clown car legislature and their idiot teabagging activities responsible for ruining a progressing state.

OMFnGawd when you read the entire story!

2. How pathetic

The director Lightfoot was to replace, Deb Cassidy, had been at DCDEE since 2009. She holds a Ph.D. in child development and has been on the faculty at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro since 1990.

Cassidy was fired in January, with five hours' notice to submit a report, pack her office and leave. She says Wos never met with her, canceling four scheduled meetings. She was dismissed by a letter delivered by human resources.

As a political appointee, she says, "I knew that this could happen, but I didn't think it would be done in such a disrespectful way."


I'm assuming Deb Cassidy is a Democrat since she has a PHD and believes in child development.
