Pittsboro, NC - The Chatham County Board of Education held a special meeting on the evening of February 13, 2013 that, after nearly six hours of discussion on the topic of filling the vacant District 4 seat, was continued until Monday morning, February 18.

After over two hours of discussion during the resumed meeting, the board did not reach a decision on selection of a person to fill the District 4 vacancy through November of 2014. Instead, the board unanimously voted to request that Rep. Deb McManus introduce legislation providing for a special election in November of 2013 or as soon as possible to fill the remaining term of the District 4 seat. This would allow the voters to decide on the vacancy.

If the legislation is adopted, any eligible individuals could file as a candidate for the seat. A candidate must reside in the district which he or she seeks to represent, but will be voted on by the voters of the entire county.
