In this week's issue of In Context, the WEP's e-newsletter, the group today makes repeated mention of the "script" that the board majority followed on Tuesday. It notes how school board chairman Ron Margiotta had told people at the recent Northern Wake Republican Club meeting that it's not a shock what they're doing.
The WEP points to all the amendments from the board minority that were rejected by 5-4 votes. Noting how Margiotta told the Northern Wake Republican Club he expected the issue to wind up in court, the WEP says the amendments could be part of any court proceedings.
"After the vote was taken, Margiotta made special mention of [board member Keith] Sutton's ideas, saying they deserved further review," the WEP wrote. "But it wasn't going to happen Tuesday evening. That wasn't part of the script."
The WEP was one of the groups singled out as needing to go from fighting to work with the school board by leaders of Wake CARES at their Wednesday press conference.
