There is no joy in Mudville, Jerry Goldberg has struck out. The N.C. Board of Elections Monday upheld a recent ruling by the Wake County Board of Elections that stated Goldberg did not meet the residency requirements to run for Raleigh City Council District D.

Goldberg's attorney, former N.C. Democratic Party chairman Jerry Meek, had asked Wake County Superior Court Judge Michael Morgan to issue a temporary injunction against the Wake Board's ruling on the grounds that the requirement is unconstitutional. Morgan did not grant the injunction, pending the state board's review. Meek told the Indy that he would go back to the court for a decision on the constitutionality of the requirement.
