'Foot soldiers' for both Wake County School Board candidates hit the streets Saturday, fighting for votes that could determine the future of the state's largest school district.

Representatives for school board incumbent Kevin Hill and challenger Heather Losurdo went door-to-door Saturday, urging voters to show up for next month’s runoff election.

They spent the day talking with voters and left campaign information for residents who weren’t home.

“Many of them probably had one or more touches from us, from an advertisement or something in the mail,” Kevin Hill Supporter Steve Wilson said.

Wake School Board Candidate Heather Losurdo told ABC11 she appreciates the effort.

“These are grass roots folks, and we just need to get out there – people have a very clear choice, and they need a little extra boost to get out and vote on November 8th,” Losurdo said.

Losurdo also pounded the pavement Saturday, she says for face-to-face voter appeals.

Wake School Board Candidate Kevin Hill was out-of-town Saturday, celebrating his wife’s birthday, but Hill supporters stayed busy campaigning on his behalf.

“I think the thing that’s important to me about Kevin is his experience, as opposed to the woman running against him,” Kevin Hill Supporter Doug Lester said.

“I grew up in a neighborhood school type of district, and that’s what I believe in – we’re not in favor of busing,” Heather Losurdo Supporter Randy Gluck said.

The runoff election for the District 3 School Board seat will be held on Tuesday, November 8th.
