During my past 4 ½ years on the Wake County Board of Education, it has been an honor to provide leadership backed by the community’s support and commitment to public education. We have removed partisan rancor from board politics, increased stability of student assignments, and returned our central focus to student achievement. I am committed to continuing this forward momentum, and anticipate becoming a re- election candidate once filing opens June 13.
As you know, the Wake County Board of Education districts are in flux. A legal case will be heard beginning May 9 to determine whether I will continue to serve in District 5 or run in a new District 6. While I have cultivated many personal and school relationships in District 5, I continue to expand similar relationships in the new district; I will gladly serve, if re-elected, in either location.
Prior to candidate filing, please check this site often as it is being updated. Information on the district outcome will be posted when available. Finally, please consider a donation today so this campaign can begin touching new voters immediately after filing.
Jim Martin’s goals as a Wake County School Board member will be to exercise good governance and fiscal responsibility to bring high quality education to all students in the public schools.
