Tom Benton already has the endorsement of all five mayors for Zebulon, Wendell, Knightdale, Rolesville, and Wake Forest in District 1. Therefore, he certainly may not need mine. However, he absolutely has it nonetheless.
Mr. Benton is the principal who hired me when I moved to Raleigh from South Carolina in 2002. He is one who not only listens, but hears. He is a consensus-builder and his 40 years of experience as an educator and principal will serve the Wake County Board incredibly well.
From working for and with him, I know first-hand that he always puts the students first. He knows what tools we teachers need to best serve them. You can honestly take him at his slogan, “Determined to Make A Difference!”
