Edgecombe County Public Schools Board Of Education Will Vote Again Today On A Candidate to Replace The Unexpired Term Of Attorney Teresa D. Bryant In District 2, Should Have Done The Right Thing At The June Meeting

So will the board do the right thing and appoint a board member in accordance to the make up of district since the district was created for a black to represent. Since Attorney Bryant is black then the appointment should go to a black candidate. But this 4 – 3 white majority board can’t figure that out. However Attorney Bryant did not participate in the voting process in June, so this actually makes the board a 4 – 2 majority white during the voting on a candidate to replace her.

So since the board ended with a tie during the June meeting, I have a question: “Can Attorney Bryant vote because I believe she removed herself during the time of the vote?”

It is a possibility that if Attorney Bryant voted and they voted along racial lines then the board chair could break the tie.

Envy indicates a weakness of the character.
Where envy is there is the absence of generosity, charity and brotherliness.
In fact, it is impossible to feel both envy and kindness towards the same person at the same time.
