Amy Womble: Excess ‘Aggravation’

January 13, 2014 

The incessant battering of the Wake County school board by county commissioners Paul Coble and Tony Gurley (“Wake denies school design money,” Jan. 7 news article) reminds me of the board game “Aggravation.” In this Parcheesi-based game, players move toward home base while blocking others from doing so.

Our commissioners need to respect that Wake County residents showed confidence in our school board by voting “yes” to the recent school bond issue. While there is always room for improved collaboration, it is past time to stop the games.

If Coble and Gurley can’t put the county and students first, Nov. 4 is our chance to elect others who will.
