— After filling one seat last week, the Wake County Board of Education is now looking to replace former member Debra Goldman.

The Wake County Public School System announced Monday that the school board is accepting letters of interest from those wishing to serve out the remainder of Goldman's term, which expires in November, as the District 9 representative, who serves western Wake County, including Cary.

Interested applicants must submit a letter, no longer than five pages, a résumé and three letters of recommendation by Feb. 22 to be considered.

Application materials can either be sent via email to district9vacancy@wcpss.net or be mailed to District 9 Board of Education Vacancy, Wake County Board of Education, Crossroads 1, 5625 Dillard Drive, Cary, N.C., 27518.

Goldman announced Feb. 3 that she was leaving the board to serve as executive director for a Wilkes County-based nonprofit.

Her resignation was the second in the past several months.

In December, Chris Malone resigned his District 1 seat after he was elected to the state House of Representatives.

Last week, the board appointed Thomas Benton, of Zebulon, to serve out the remainder of Malone's term, which also expires in November.

    Good one Rebel:

    Anakin: "We need a system where the politicians sit down and discuss the problem. Agree what's in the best interests of all the people, and do it."
    Padme: "That's exactly what they do, the trouble is that people don't always agree."
    Anakin: "Then they should be made to."
    Padme: "By whom? Who's going to make them?"
    Anakin: "I don't know. Someone."
    Padme: "You?"
    Anakin: "Of course not me!" Padme: "Then someone...?" Anakin: "Someone wise." Padme: "That sounds an awful lot like a dictatorship to me." Anakin: "Well... if it works..."

    Save some tax money, fire all of them, and then just elect one person who'll handle it and sit on the county board.

    Goldman didn't resign. When she registered to vote outside of Wake County, she disqualified herself from the job. He letter of resignation was given a week later - too late.
