Two separate online petitions have been created urging that Debra Goldman and Chris Malone be removed or resign from the Wake County school board because of the allegations they had a romantic relationship.
This petition says that both should be removed because their actions "call their character and capability of acting in the best interest of the students of Wake County." The General Assembly would need to pass a law to allow for any school board members in Wake to be recalled.
This other petition accuses the duo of violating the school board code of ethics, including the section saying board members should "take no private action that will compromise the Board or administration." The petition asks them to voluntarily resign.
