In previous posts we've wondered about the after school program that Rev Williams was in charge of at Fair Promise. What would happen to it now that he's left? They are getting YOUR tax dollars to run the program.
No matter what is said and done, the Lee County Board of Education Chair is getting funds from Department of Public Instruction to fund his programs. That simply appears to be a conflict of interest.
Found this on another website and I guess it answers the question:

School Board Chair leaves church conference
3 April 2012
SANFORD–School Board Chairman Shawn Williams, who was also Pastor of Fair Promise AME Zion Church, one of the oldest AME Zion churches in Lee County, has left the Conference after being reassigned by the Bishop a week ago. Williams made it through Conference re-assignments in November but was reassigned to a smaller church in Harnett County last week. Williams told WWGP news Monday that after prayerfully considering the matter, he decided not to accept the new assignment and to start his own church. He said he preached his final sermon at Fair Promise last week, and Sunday, preached at a facility in Broadway. He said he is looking for space large enough to accommodate his afterschool program.
