If our town is split among three districts Knightdale will hold little power and be of slight interest to school board members because our vote will be diluted among the three districts (candidates).
Additionally, we will need to turn to three different school board members to gain resolution to issues or problems in our town's schools. One of the School Board's guiding principles in re-districting was to respect municipal boundaries. Fuquay Varina was divided into two, but they are a community of 25,000. Knightdale is only 12,000 and chunked into three. Knightdale citizens will have less than 3% of influence in this newly proposed district alignment.
Citizens of Knightdale would be lobbying to their new school board member, but that member would have no influence involving issues for the citizen's base school of assignment.
"We, the undersigned, call on the Wake County School Board to stop the re-districting of the Town of Knightdale, NC."
The citizens of Knightdale do not want to be split into multiple school board districts. Our town population size requires that we have a single voice through one school board representative who fights for our community schools, children and parents.
Keep Knightdale whole and provide the best interest for our Town through single representation.
