Pittsboro, NC - The Chatham Board of Commissioners is considering a unanimous request by the Chatham Board of Education to redraw the current four Board of Education Districts to be identical to the five Board of Commissioner election districts.

The public hearing on this request will be held on Tuesday, January 19 at 6 pm in the Superior Courtroom in the Historic Courthouse in Pittsboro.

“Currently, we have confusion regarding having four Board of Education districts, when there are five Board of Education members. Two school board members are elected from District Four,” said Sally Kost, chairwoman of the Chatham County Board of Commissioners.

“After the 2010 US Census, all the districts will need to be redrawn. It will be more efficient and more transparent if the Board of Education districts and the Board of Commissioner Districts are the same,” said Kost. “The Board of Education has asked us to consider this request, and we would like to hear from Chatham County citizens as to whether they think this is a
good idea.”
