Will Beverley Clark became the next school board member to give up her seat?
Rumors are swirling that Clark will resign her seat in August, allowing her to stay on for a little while longer to vote on the applicants for Rosa Gill's vacant seat. Clark has served the longest of any of the board members. She was first elected in 1999.
Clark was non-committal about her intentions.
"That's interesting," Clark said when asked last week about her rumored resignation.
The line proceeded to break up with static. Clark did not return follow-up calls.
Normally I don't blog about rumors. But it's based on multiple sources that are normally reliable.
The speculation is that the last straw for Clark was not being elected board chairwoman last month.
If Clark does resign, the board would likely follow the same procedure it's using now to fill Gill's seat. Applications would be requested from her District 6 Central Raleigh seat to finish out her term, which expires November 2011.
