Ron Margiotta is finding out the hard way that every word he says in public will be closely scrutinized now that he's chairman of the Wake County school board.
As noted in today's article, Margiotta is clarifying the remarks he made at Thursday's Northern Wake Republican Club meeting about his support for slitting up the school district. He's already had to defend the "here come the animals out of the cages" remark that he had said in passing at the last school board meeting.
In the past, Margiotta didn't have people tracking his every word when he was the lone member of the board minority. But now people are following him around to hear what he says, including Thursday night's GOP meeting.
