District 7 Wake School Board candidate Jerry Ballan dropped out of the race today, according to an email he sent the Indy in response to our candidate questionnaire. Ballan declined to give a reason for his withdrawal.
The Wake County GOP endorsed Ballan last week. According to Gail Marold of the Wake County Republican Party, the executive committee will meet again soon to endorse another candidate. The party is expected to issue a press release no later than Monday.
The Wake Schools Community Alliance has endorsed Deborah Prickett in District 7. Marold said WSCAs support isnt a factor in the GOPs endorsements.
