Ex-Wake school board member Goldman resigns from town board

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

Debra Goldman, who resigned from the Wake County Board of Education in 2013, has resigned from the town council of Ronda, in Wilkes County, her attorney confirmed Thursday.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported that Goldman and her boyfriend, Ronda commissioner Kevin Reece, have both resigned.

Goldman said in a five-paragraph letter that she had been out of town because of “the serious nature of my ongoing injuries.” She did not give details on her medical issues, the Journal said.

Her attorney, Timothy Stewart, confirmed she had resigned for health reasons and time commitments to an ailing family member.

Goldman won a seat on the town commission in November of 2013 after she stepped down from the Wake County Board of Education in February 2013.

Goldman joined the Wake County board in a Republican takeover in 2009.
