It's not taking former Wake County school board member Debra Goldman long to make a public splash in her new home in Wilkes County.
The Wilkes Journal-Patriot is reporting today that Goldman was excited Tuesday to be attending her first town meeting. According to the article, Goldman commended Mayor Victor Varela for allowing the public to be so involved in the meeting.
But the article says Goldman also criticized Varela for interrupting residents when they were speaking. It turns out that her boss, Kevin Reece, is organizing a petition to recall Varela and is not happy people can’t remove elected officials.
Goldman resigned from the school board Feb. 1 after Reece hired her to be the first executive director of the non-profit Derie Cheek Reece Foundation.
