Eddie Davis is running for schools superintendent.
"I strong believe that my candidacy will bring excitement, hope, and the joy of learning to citizens from Murphy to Manteo," he wrote. (Adverb mistake his.)
Davis said he will campaign for more "respect, responsibility, and vision" for schoolteachers. He stressed his 30-year teaching career and his experience in advocacy.
Like Atkinson, Davis will participate in the public campaign financing program recently created by the legislature.
Update: Davis corrected the mistake in a follow-up e-mail.
