Goldman speaks out on controversy

Wake County School Board members met for the first time since the scandal surrounding Debra Goldman and Chris Malone broke.

It was the board's first public meeting since media reports surfaced about a burglary at Goldman's home. The news came in the homestretch of her campaign for state auditor.  

"Look at the nature and spirit of why somebody would bring up what they did from almost three years ago now regarding the incident with my home and why of such a vindictive nature," said Goldman," and, quite frankly, outright lies."

At the time, Goldman told Cary police she suspected fellow board member Chris Malone. Back then, Malone told police the two were physically involved. However, Goldman denies that.

"I'm not talking until after the election," said Malone.

Tuesday evening, Malone, who's running for a state house seat, ran from reporters.

Also running for statewide office is John Tedesco, who gave less than a ringing endorsement to Goldman after he voted Tuesday.

When asked if he voted for Goldman, Tedesco replied, "I value our secret ballot."    

Meanwhile at the school board meeting, despite disagreement, virtually the entire board approved a new time line to develop and enact its third student assignment plan in as many years without bickering.

"I think we saw a little more professionalism," said Board Chairman Kevin Hill.
