Wake County Commissioner Phil Matthews is urging people to show up at Monday's school board meeting to rally behind Superintendent Tony Tata.
"Attention Everyone!!" Matthews posted today on his Facebook page. "Rumor is the new liberal school board members are going to try to terminate Superintendent Tony Tata on Monday at their 12:30 at a closed session! They are using a lame excuse about buses to get rid of him. Everyone needs to show up at the meeting in Cary to show their support.
He is a good friend, and is doing an outstanding job. I will take his firing personally so I am now "on record"!! Pass this on to everyone you know and contact your school board members to show your concern!"
