Jennifer Mansfield discusses school board candidacy on WPTF

Wake County school board candidate Jennifer Mansfield is praising the actions of the new school board majority while also warning that things have become too politicized.

In an interview Thursday on the Rick and Donna Martinez Show on WPTF, Mansfield highlighted he tightrope she's walking on of trying to get people who disagree with incumbent Kevin Hill to vote for her instead of Heather Losurdo.

"District 3 for the last four years has not had a voice for parents and students so that's first and foremost is to be a voice for District 3 residents," Mansfield answered when asked why she's running. "And we need somebody who's in there whose experienced and I've been doing this for over six years, been involved in school issues."

Former principal Richard Murphy dies

I've got some sad news to pass along about the death Saturday of former longtime Wake County high school principal Richard Murphy.

Murphy, 62, who had cancer, was a Wake high school principal for 21 years, including a year at East Wake High and nine years at Sanderson High. But he's perhaps best known for having been the first principal of Leesville Road High School, which opened in 1993.

Murphy left Leesville in 2004 to become senior director of high school programs.
