You’ve probably seen plenty of media coverage today about Garner High School as supporters of the $810 million Wake County school bond issue held a news conference and tour of the school.
Phil Zachary, co-chairman of the Friends of Wake County, talked about how Wake was built on “yes” and cringing when he sees the vote no signs. Wake County school board chairman Keith Sutton talked about the need for new schools and Wake County Board of Commissioners Chairman Joe Bryan said the bonds were the best way to pay for the growth.
Garner High Principal Drew Cook gave a tour of the campus. I’ve gone into detail about the issues he’s raised in this prior blog post.
The Wake County Taxpayers Association will hold a dueling news conference against the bond issue on Wednesday.
