STANFORD - Randy McGuffey, one of the staunch opponents of a facilities plan that would close Kings Mountain Memorial Elementary School, will not run for re-election this year to the Lincoln County Board of Education.
But it was not because of any recent agenda items, said McGuffey. It was a "promise that I made to my family four years ago," he said.
McGuffey said he decided to publicly announce his intentions during Thursday's board meeting so that the word would spread in time for others to consider running for the empty seat.
McGuffey said there might be individuals who would be great for the job and would run if they knew the seat was going to be open.
