It doesn't look like the Wake County school system will be officially releasing today the names of the applicants who filed for the District 9 school board vacancy before the 5 p.m. deadline.
As far as I know, at least four people have indicated they would file. You've got Nancy Caggia, Bill Fletcher, Linda Gunter and Lois Nixon. If there's anyone else, we'll have to see.
The school board search process is supposed to be by law a fully open process.
During her goodbye appearance Tuesday, Debra Goldman urged her former colleagues to pick a replacement for her who had similar views on issues. That's probably not going to happen, at least when it comes to assignment issues.
