Ben Clapsaddle cites military background in Wake County school board application

Ben Clapsaddle contends that the experience he gained in the U.S. Army and his work since then as a consultant would serve him well on the Wake County school board.

In Clapsaddle's application for the District 1 vacancy, the 53-year-old retired colonel notes he served 27 years in the Army. Since retiring in 2008, he's held various civilian posts working with the Army, including most recently being a project manager and consultant at Fort Bragg.

"Using my experience gained in both public and private sector, my experience as a manager and leader of large complex organizations and a strategist, I will work with the Board's staff to set policies and strategies designed to guide the County for 5 to 10 years increments," Clapsaddle writes in the application. "Will help make adjustments for short term issues, but always look to the future as the District and County grows."
