In the Sunday edition of South Charlotte News, it was reported that Matthews Mayor Pro Tem Paul Bailey likely would be the next representative for the Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools District 6.But now Bailey, 57, has two opponents for the Board of Education seat being vacated by Amelia Stinson-Wesley.On the last day of filing, Bolyn McClung of Pineville and Doug Wrona filed to run for the District 6 opening.Records show McClung, 66, is registered as a Republican. “For eight years I’ve prepared for this opportunity to serve public education,” states McClung on his website, www.mcclungforcms.com. “I promise District 6 families a School Board member ready to work from day one. Vote October 4th through November 5th.”Wrona, who is a Democrat, said Friday he has worked in CMS schools for the past nine years, although he declined to identify the district.The CMS board race will be the first time he’s run for public office, he said.“It’s something I’ve been thinking about for a while. I’ve been wanting to get involved,” said the 43-year-old. “I figured I would give it a shot.” Elisabeth Arriero
