Pender County Board of Education member Brad George resigns to presumably fill vacant board of commissioners’ seat
PENDER COUNTY, N.C. (WECT) - Brad George announced his resignation from the Pender County Board of Education at their meeting on Feb. 14 to presumably accept the role of county commissioner.
The Pender County Republican Party had earlier recommended George to fill the vacant seat on the board of commissioners left by Jimmy Tate.
“In accordance with the governing rules of the NC Republican Party and the North Carolina General Assembly G.S. 153A-27.1, the Executive Committee of the Pender County Republican party met for a properly called meeting of its Executive Committee at 6 p.m. on Monday, February 13th,” said the party in a release.
The goal of the meeting was to pick a candidate to fill the seat left by Tate, and five people offered themselves for consideration. Each was given a chance to speak to the committee during the meeting.
George’s resignation takes effect as of Feb. 21.
“Congratulations Brad George,” the party said. “Again, thank you to the other candidates that stepped up and offered their service for our county.”
