We'll find out today whether any additional people have stepped forward to apply for the District 1 vacancy on the Wake County school board.
Wendy Ford has been the only person to apply for the seat, now vacated by Chris Malone, before the holidays. School officials say they don't know who's applied over the holidays since the district's offices have been closed since Dec. 24.
But with Central Office reopened, we should find out who emailed their applications in and who submitted their paperwork in the mail. The application deadline is Friday.
As of mid-Wednesday afternoon, no new applications have come in for the vacancy.
