Wake County school board chairman Ron Margiotta announced today the formation of his campaign committee in his bid to win re-election in District 8.
In today's press release, Margiotta said the initial committee members are former Holly Springs Town Councilman Hank Dickson, Fuquay-Varina community activists Jan and Art Wilson, Green Level businessman and activist Dan McMain and Apex Town Councilman Gene Schulze. He said more people are still being added.
The press release describes the committee members as coming "from all political leanings yet share a concern with the direction of the Wake County school system and the need for continued reform."
“I am honored to have such an experienced and informed group of talented individuals who wholeheartedly support our students and our communities,” said Margiotta in the press release. “Our team will work closely with volunteers throughout District 8 to ensure every voter understands my commitment to empowering parents, embracing community and ensuring academic success for all students.”
Margiotta also announced that Allison Backhouse, a regular here on this blog, will be his campaign manager.
