ALBANY, GA (WALB) - More shakeup is in the search for a Dougherty County School Superintendent. The board may not stay with the man they chose to take the job.

Dougherty County School Board Chairman David Machske confirms there will be an emergency meeting this week to consider looking at other choices.

Last week, Dr. Joshua Murfree, who currently works for Albany State University, was named the sole finalist for the job.

Questions later arose as to why he was selected after it was revealed he ranked 34th out of 37 applicants by the Georgia School Board Association.

Maschke says board member Michael Windom, who voted for Murfree, sent him an email asking to hold a meeting this week to reconsider the choice.

Calls to Windom were not returned Sunday.
