I can tell you that eight people have applied for the District 1 vacancy on the Wake County school board, but that's about all I can say for most of them.
Six last-minute applications came in this afternoon to beat the 5 p.m. filing deadline. The problem is administrators say they can't reach the person who received the applications to say who they are from.
Administrators say they expect to have the names of the final six applicants by Monday.
The school board will discuss during Tuesday's work session the process for filling the vacancy.
One of the questions that board members will face is whether to interview all eight applicants or just some of them. School board chairman Keith Sutton says he wants the replacement for Chris Malone to be appointed by the end of the month.
As of 4 p.m. Monday, Wake has not provided the names or applications of the people who filed Friday.
