    Hallelujah and good riddance!!!!

  • tired2 Feb 5, 11:13 a.m.

    paultaylorsr100...if you are so worried about Barber - put your name in the ring...otherwise, deal with it

  • tired2 Feb 5, 11:10 a.m.

    Now is the time for you Reb Board supporters to join the board....I doubt it will happen though,,,,all talk

  • paultaylorsr100 Feb 1, 7:46 p.m.

    why worry aboutwhy she left, where she is going, or wo hired her? You better worry about who William Barber has this board seat in her place!!!

  • paultaylorsr100 Feb 1, 7:44 p.m.

    ". . . abandoned her post . . . ".

    That's all they have, left-wing talking points.

  • SaltyOldJarhead Feb 1, 7:42 p.m.

    I for one, wish that the lady would seek a position somewhere out of NC. I feel sorry for the folks in Wilkesboro that they have to deal with her now.

  • Plum Tuckered Feb 1, 7:38 p.m.

    One cannot blame her for wanting to fade into the grey after embarrassing herself as she has recently, particularly with her run for the state auditor's seat, but I am surprised to see her turn tail and run like this.

    Screwy, but not as bad as Sarah Palin, who abandoned her post as Governor for . . . nothing.

  • exposure102 Feb 1, 7:21 p.m.

    I would sure like to see the Board replace her with a registered independent. (Unaffiliated) - Mom2two

    Won't do any good, libs will still cry racist the first time they don't agree with their agenda.

  • cbuckyoung Feb 1, 7:05 p.m.

    The DemoSocialist have undermined every positive move the Wake County School Board has tried to make in the last 5-10 years. The community schools undermining was their biggest intolerant move and forcing out the superintendent. They don't need to "strengthen" their hand. The DemoSocialist need to open their hand and take the death grip off the board.

  • Scubagirl Feb 1, 6:44 p.m.

    good riddance, she's just a little crazy and better somewhere else.

  • samr Feb 1, 6:41 p.m.

    Awesome... she is going to work for a nonprofit which will insure that she will continue to get paid for doing nothing. The current world we live in is made for people like her who have no conscience and no awareness of herself.

  • Mom2two Feb 1, 6:19 p.m.

    I would sure like to see the Board replace her with a registered independent. (Unaffiliated)

  • Mom2two Feb 1, 6:16 p.m.

    Clintoflannagan: she did use it to go to higher office...it just happens to be a higher altitude. I guess she needed to go someplace where no one has heard of her.

  • Mom2two Feb 1, 6:15 p.m.

    I feel sorry for Wilkes County, but so glad she is out of here. Interesting to note that she called a press conference. Narcissistic much?

  • Luv2Camp Feb 1, 6:01 p.m.

    Some nonprofit hired her??? Really????

  • Kristen168 Feb 1, 5:56 p.m.

    YAY!!! Wonder how she'll get along in Wilkes County, he he.

  • lsdhome Feb 1, 5:54 p.m.

    In a word, "'Bye!"

  • IceCreamMan Feb 1, 5:51 p.m.

    Pretty sure based upon what's now known about her history that she was blackmailed to turn on the community schools proposal at the last minute. Her character was a complete liability. Everybody should be glad she's gone.

  • Huey Feb 1, 5:45 p.m.

    I feel so sorry for the parents and kids in Wake County.

  • iron fist Feb 1, 5:21 p.m.

    Now who are Wake county parents going to blame for all the problems? Good luck Debra

  • paultaylorsr100 Feb 1, 5:18 p.m.

    "What do Libbies stand for anyway?"

    SOCIALISM!!!! They believe everything is about, by and for the government.

  • DrJ Feb 1, 5:12 p.m.

    "the republican board controlled wake county commisioners are looking to gerrymander the districts in the county for the school board so i'm sure it will be difficult for democrats to maintain the majority in the future" --mmtlash

    Thanks, mmtlash. This would be excellent news, if accurate. The recent hold by Republicans was entirely too short to correct a decades old Democrat mess.

  • Raleigh Rocks 1 Feb 1, 5:02 p.m.

    Liberals, who are supposed to be tolerant by definition, sure are mean spirited. Not much liberal tolerance on these boards. What do Libbies stand for anyway?

  • ehart Feb 1, 4:58 p.m.

    Don't let the door hit ya,... well you know the rest.

  • injameswetrust2003 Feb 1, 4:52 p.m.

    "Let's hope that Evans takes the hint before she once again swipes the microphone from other board members at future meetings." - westernwake

    Amen!!!!

  • tarheelfan41 Feb 1, 4:52 p.m.

    Being able to replace two of the four Republicans on the school board could give the Democratic majority a chance to strengthen its control of the divided board
    .............said the non partisian board.....

  • injameswetrust2003 Feb 1, 4:51 p.m.

    "the republican board controlled wake county commisioners are looking to gerrymander the districts in the county for the school board so i'm sure it will be difficult for democrats to maintain the majority in the future"= mmtlash

    One can only hope.

  • injameswetrust2003 Feb 1, 4:50 p.m.

    Would the other 7 members follow her lead? Definitely a good thing for the community- no more drama and 'all about me' attitude.

    "Being able to replace two of the four Republicans on the school board could give the Democratic majority a chance to strengthen its control of the divided board."

    They're licking their chops to bring back the diversity busing full scale.

  • justabumer Feb 1, 4:47 p.m.

    I thought school board elections were non-partisian.

  • ehart Feb 1, 4:41 p.m.

    ""There is an old saying "When one devil leaves, another devil enters".. it will be interesting to see who replaces her.""

    if that's the case, the whole board is full of the devil! ;-)

  • streetglide Feb 1, 4:39 p.m.

    smart Lady,, get out while you can,, she did not stand a chance with all the Liberals up there,,, lets watch and see how far they get,, it will be a JOKE!! like it is now!!

  • silkesmom Feb 1, 4:38 p.m.

    Now Cary needs one less 911 operator to field looney calls.

  • more cowbell Feb 1, 4:37 p.m.

    Get someone to replace her who puts kids FIRST, something that seems to be one of the last priorities of WCPSS.
    Iak Hsehpen

    That's an original concept. They can start anytime.

  • superman Feb 1, 4:36 p.m.

    I cant believe that someone hired her for a job. Must have been Burger King. Now if only john will follow her lead.

  • more cowbell Feb 1, 4:31 p.m.

    The news conference is her attempt to get the lst word (she thinks). The den of iniquity (aka WCSB) remains.

  • wenfromwake Feb 1, 4:29 p.m.

    Gee thanks Goldman and Malone for leaving the Republicans without a voice and to make a bad board even worse and even more liberal.

  • mcorson2 Feb 1, 4:27 p.m.

    Bye!}

  • InTheNo Feb 1, 4:22 p.m.

    Thank you, Debra.

  • yellow_hat Feb 1, 4:21 p.m.

    Good riddance.

  • mmtlash Feb 1, 4:19 p.m.

    the republican board controlled wake county commisioners are looking to gerrymander the districts in the county for the school board so i'm sure it will be difficult for democrats to maintain the majority in the future

  • Minarchist Feb 1, 4:17 p.m.

    Im sure she did it "for the children".

  • spiritseeker Feb 1, 4:11 p.m.

    Maybe, just maybe John T. will take the hint and resign as well.

  • NiceNSmooth Feb 1, 4:09 p.m.

    why the press conference... what else is there to say? Bet she is going to play the victim... poor me, picked on etc.

  • MDL33 Feb 1, 4:08 p.m.

    Cjw6105- they been there, done that , and have the failing system to show
    for it.

  • bobbijames4 Feb 1, 4:06 p.m.

    Thank goodness!

  • BE Feb 1, 4:06 p.m.

    Good! Glad she is GONE!

  • Paladin2 Feb 1, 4:03 p.m.

    The voters of Wake County will now get more of what they voted for with the liberal left wing Democratic board memebers taking even greater control as they operate under the direction of William Barber and the liberal community. Sad commentary for the school system. Hopefully the voters will have learned something, albeit much too late.

  • CrazyFoxofCary Feb 1, 4:02 p.m.

    There is an old saying "When one devil leaves, another devil enters".. it will be interesting to see who replaces her.

  • reincarnatedasme Feb 1, 4:01 p.m.

    Kudos to Westernwake1 and hp277. This entire school board is like a dysfunctional family. I see no positive leadership, just a bunch of infighting. It is past time for change.

  • computer trainer Feb 1, 3:59 p.m.

    The DEMs have all control of the chaos there.

    Good luck to Ms Goldman.
