You could tell that Wake County's mayors were in two different camps at Friday's breakfast meeting with the school board.
As noted in today's article by Sadia Latifi, the Western Wake mayors had praise for the new school board majority. The Eastern Wake mayors were less excited at the change in school board leadership.
"Thank you for bringing a more responsive attitude to the school board," said Apex Mayor Keith Weatherly at the meeting. "Families and taxpayers are demanding changes in Wake County schools."
But the Eastern Wake mayors lobbied for more resources. Along the way, Wendell Mayor J. Harold Broadwell took a swipe at the new school board majority's opposition to the diversity policy.
"I am a product of diversity..." Broadwell said at the meeting. "I benefitted from kinds who came from better backgrounds from me."
