Wake County school board member John Tedesco is confirming that foreclosure proceedings have begun on his Garner home.
Tedesco said he's in the process of renegotiating the terms of his mortgage to get lower monthly payments. He said he's been living off his life savings, school board stipend and income tax return since he resigned in April from his job as a vice president of Big Brothers, Big Sisters of the Triangle.
"It goes to show what I've been saying all along that I'm not taking money from anybody," Tedesco said.
Some of his critics have questioned how he's been able to pay his bills, speculating that's been receiving money under the table.
