A research assistant found the following WRAL (A Raleigh News Media) report and sent the following link to me.
The report identifies Jonathan Sink, half of the Sink Law Firm (the other half being Mrs. Jonathan Sink) as Speaker Tim Moore’s former Deputy Chief of Staff. The Sink Law Firm now is the Law firm representing Cleveland County Schools. The selection of the Sink Law Firm was by a 5-4 vote of the School Board with those four board members voting against that selection alleging foul play in the selection process. They also alleged that the NEW School Board Majority refused to provide persuasive credential that the Sink Law Firm met the requirements of the Request for Proposals (RFP) that were sent out seeking legal representation.
It is rare (very, very rare) that I agree with the positions of Board Members Phillip “Poodle” Glover, Coleman Hunt, Dena Green and Greg Taylor, but this is one of those rare occasions. Especially with some of the bad legal advice that I have heard Ms. Sink give the School Board. More on that in other articles.
The following is a rendering of the WRAL piece provided below for your convenience. Please read the piece and form your own opinion of the wisdom of hiring the Sink Law Firm to represent Cleveland County Schools. But know that more information is coming out that I believe will convincingly show that the safety of our children is at risk at Cleveland County Schools and the Sink Law Firm is actively involved in the cover-up!

RALEIGH, N.C.— The North Carolina Republican Party’s executive director will leave the party after the March primaries, moving on after eight months in the job.
Jonathan Sink said this is a “pure family” move. He was hired Monday as Gaston County’s in-house attorney and will move from Raleigh with his wife and young children.
Sink said he’ll work with the party until the week before his March 16 start in Gastonia. The primaries are March 3, and the Republican National Convention will be held in Charlotte in late August.
Sink had only positive things to say about party leadership, which turned over last year after then-Chairman Robin Hayes’ indictment on bribery charges. Sink took the executive director’s job in July replacing Dallas Woodhouse.
“They have totally and in quick order turned the party headquarters around,” Sink said.
He credited new Chairman Michael Whatley, who is from Gaston County, and Vice Chairwoman Miriam Chu.
Sink is from the Charlotte area and described the move as a return home. Since 2017, he’s been House Speaker Tim Moore ‘s deputy chief of staff, general counsel for state Superintendent of Public Instruction Mark Johnson and the party’s executive director.
“I’m just grateful,” Sink said of his time with the party. “I’m grateful to have been a part of a quick turnaround. … It will be a strong finish with this leadership.”
