CMS finalists: Video and polls

If you missed the superintendent finalists Wednesday,  Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools has just posted video of the evening forum at Northwest School of the Arts.  Longer interviews with each candidate at the Government Center should be posted Friday,  for those who couldn't watch it live online.

Meanwhile, online polls by the Observer and MeckEd both show Ann Clark as the strong favorite  --  perhaps not surprising, given that the 29-year CMS veteran is the only one well known in Charlotte.  It's worth noting that neither poll determines who gets the job  (that's up to the school board)  and neither stops people from stuffing the virtual ballot box.

That said,  MeckEd,  which launched its poll Wednesday,  had 843 responses at 5 p.m. today,  with 74 percent for Clark.  Ours,  launched this morning,  gave Clark 56 percent of 447 responses.  In both, Reno Superintendent Heath Morrison is running slightly ahead of Memphis Superintendent Kriner Cash.

If any of you tuned in or attended forums,  I'm curious to hear your thoughts on the finalists and the process.
