Debra Goldman seems to be an equal-opportunity 911 caller. She apparently has called the police now about two fellow board members. This on top of dozens of calls to her Cary home in recent years.
If she gets elected State Auditor, the police may need to build a substation at her office.
No wonder Pat McCrory wisely put some distance between himself and her in Wednesday night’s debate.
Ms. Goldman says she was threatened by another school board member, apparently Keith Sutton. Sutton says her charge “may be racial.” Jim Martin says, “Sutton was not the only member, nor the first member, to issue an ‘offensive and threatening’ outburst.”
School board meetings sound like a gang fight.
It’s hard to sort out all this. But a couple of things are clear.
First, there is never an excuse for “offensive and threatening” behavior – by anybody.
Second, trouble seems to follow Goldman.
Everybody needs to take a deep breath. Goldman ought to step down and let somebody else take her place. And all of us should agree that she has no business holding an important state office.
