it looks like Wake County school board member Debra Goldman's resignation plans didn't go as planned, setting up a potential legal issue for the district.
Goldman said her plan was to announce her resignation at Tuesday's meeting, where she would discuss the new job she's taking with a non-profit in the Wilkes County area. She wanted to wait until then so she could vote on the filling the District 1 board vacancy.
"I am preparing to move,” Goldman said. “The voters in my district deserve to have me weigh in on the replacement for Chris Malone. I still live in Cary.”
The legal controversy is over. Goldman sent this followup email announcing her resignation goes into effect immediately.

Subject: follow up Re: New position/Resignation
Hello again... My excitement continues to mount regarding my new position. As I'm very eager to move forward, I have spoken with Jonathan Blumberg. I believe that to make this as streamlined as possible, for all involved, my resignation is effective right away. I would like to be able to represent my district, but feel that with my need to transition and go back and forth between Wake and Wilkes, it is best for all that I resign at this time.
