The Wake County school board re-elected Kevin Hill today as board chairman and Keith Sutton as vice chairman on a pair of 5-4 votes.
Hill defeated board member Debra Goldman. In her nomination speech, board member Deborah Prickett said Goldman is noted for her efforts to bring transparency and efficiency to the district and is a "family friendly board member."
Sutton defeated Prickett, who was nominated by Goldman. In her speech, Goldman said Prickett is in the forefront at her community for getting feedback and solutions.
The term is officially for one year but could change if the General Assembly passes local legislation allowing Wake to move the annual meeting to December.
