Former Wake County school board member Chris Malone is one of two Republican state legislators who is criticizing the school system for hiring a lobbyist to oppose changes backed by county commissioners.
Malone's comments are part of this press release issued today by the North Carolina chapter of Americans for Prosperity, a conservative advocacy group that's no fan of the current Democratic board majority.
“As a former member of the Wake County School Board, I understand the need for another elected body to offer its views on proposed or needed legislation," Malone says in the press release. "While on the Board, I often made our case to our Wake County Legislative Delegation, via telephone, email or personal visit. Legislators are more than willing to listen to various points of view."
