More details to come later but the Wake County school board voted 5-3 today to approve the redistricting plan for election districts.
Democratic school board member Carolyn Morrison, who said she was satisfied with the changes to her District 6, joined the Republicans in voting for the maps. The other three Democrats voted no, having unsuccessfully asked that Kieran Shanahan draw up some options they could compare the plan against.
School board members John Tedesco and Deborah Prickett warned that they'd want to consider making major changes if new options were considered. In particular, Tedesco said he'd want in that scenario to make District 5 the only Inside the Beltline district with District 4 pushing further eastward into Knightdale and the eastern part of the county.
