Wake County school board member Chris Malone is touting what he's done for Eastern Wake in his bid to win the state House 35 seat.
One of the school board accomplishments that Malone points to on his campaign website is the nixing of the Forest Ridge High School site in Raleigh in favor of Rolesville High. While hotly debated at the time, Rolesville High is set to open in August 2013.
"Mr. Malone was elected in 2009 to the Wake County School Board, where he has been working to bring Community Schools and sorely needed programs and equitable treatment to Eastern Wake County," says Malone's website. "Amongst his efforts that were brought to pass were the Student Assignment program, the moving of a high school from Raleigh to Rolesville, and the opening of two STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) schools."
