Do you listen to the still, small voice within? I do. It often offers insights I might have overlooked, or reveal something new that needs attention. Wednesday evening, for instance, I arrived at the Prince George’s NAACP office in Upper Marlboro for what turned out to be the gathering of less than a dozen people to discuss their opposition to a new bill that would create a task force to study the composition, qualifications and compensation of the Prince George’s County School Board.
No doubt, it was the fiery, perfect-pitched rhetoric of David L. Cahn, co-chair of the Citizens for an Elected Board, a coalition that formed 11 years ago to restore the county’s elected school board, that first drew my attention.
