Wake Commissioners Change Course
A new Republican majority on the Wake County Board of Commissioners plans to undo some efforts passed by the old Democratic majority.
A lot is expected to happen later today when the Wake County Commissioners meet for the first time with new members. The Republican Majority will rescind a resolution that expresses “deep concern” over the re-segregation of the Wake County schools.
The county commissioners have financial oversight over the schools.
The anti-re-segregation resolution passed last April.
The 4-to-3 Republican Majority is also expected to pass a resolution prohibiting insurance funding for elective abortions for county employees.
