Pender superintendent denies commissioner’s claims she ignored him

Wednesday, March 19th, 2014

BURGAW, NC (WWAY) — Pender County Schools Superintendent Dr. Terri Cobb says she is not ignoring County Commissioner Jimmy Tate’s request for a meeting to discuss education.

But Tate says Cobb is giving him the cold shoulder.

Earlier this week Tate said he requested a special meeting with Cobb three weeks ago, but never heard back. Today Dr. Cobb sat down with us to tell her side of the story.

Cobb said Wednesday she has been in contact with Tate.

“I first heard from Mr. Tate on the 7th with a text message asking me to contact him. I did on that Monday the 10th,” Cobb said. “The date that he wanted to meet I was not available.”

Dr. Cobb says before the day was over she sent text messages with dates she was available, but she says Tate was not available for those dates.

Tate said he wanted to discuss teacher pay, retention, and student preparation for college and careers, and was so upset that Cobb would not meet with him he threatened resignation.

“I was fully prepared to consider resigning from the county commission and Priority One, because of the level of disrespect that I believe that I have been shown in this process,” Tate said Monday night.

But Cobb says this is not the case.

“I have a great deal of respect for our county commissioners and our other elected officials, and want to do everything possible to have a very positive working relationship,” she said.

Cobb says she would be more than happy to meet with Tate. She says they’ve already been in contact trying to figure out a time that works for both of them.
