Ervin lets down supporters by backing Weast

School board member Valerie Ervin (pictured), who has led a principled opposition to what many see as Superintendent Weast's abuse of power, let down her supporters Tuesday by voting for the resolution to praise the school boss - and saying she supports renewing Weast's $359,000-a-year contract.

Ervin, a protege of County Council President George Leventhal, is running for County Council from District 5.
