I'm still waiting on the Wake County school system to officially announce who made the application deadline, but Linda Gunter says she filed today for the District 9 school board seat.
In this press release, Gunter says that she "has devoted her entire career to the advancement of North Carolina’s public school children." Gunter is a Democratic Party activist and a lobbyist for the N.C. Association of Educators who was a former state Senator and a Cary HIgh School teacher for 30 years.
“Education is my life and I have given everything I have to it as a teacher, a parent of two Wake County Public School graduates, a legislator, and in my professional life,” said Gunter in the press release. “I know what it is like to be a parent, and now grandparent, who wants the best education for my children. I also know what it is like to be a career teacher and to shoulder that awesome responsibility.”
