State Democratic Party Chairman David Parker is cheering tonight's Wake County school board election results.
"Congratulations to Susan Evans for defeating Tea Party ringleader Ron Margiotta," Parker said in a press release tonight. "I have no doubt that Susan will work hard to restore the confidence, trust and integrity lost under Margiotta’s failed leadership. Ron Margiotta’s days of making Wake County Schools the butt of national jokes is now over.”
Parker also praised the Wake County Democratic Party's efforts.
"I want to congratulate all of our fantastic candidates as well as all of the dedicated volunteers and staff who worked long hours to make this happen," Parker said. "I would also like to send a special thank you to Mack Paul, Chairman of the Wake County Democratic Party. Without Mack’s hard work and commitment, this comeback for our schools would not be possible. Mack's dedication to the future of Wake County is beyond question.”
