Mahaffey has done a good job and should be reelected. An educator who has three young daughters—two of whom are in Wake elementary schools—Mahaffey has pushed the school system to enact a gender-neutral dress code and address implicit bias. She’s an asset to Wake County students and has earned another term in office.
