By Jennifer Emert - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –Three Dougherty County School Board members are up for re-election this fall.

One of them already has a challenger. Lynda Weaver plans to file paperwork Wednesday to run for the District two seat currently held by Milton Griffin. Weaver has a daughter who attends Radium Springs Middle School. She's concerned about the board's recent selection process for a new superintendent.

"I'm not a puppeteer, I'm a leader, I believe in speaking what I believe in, I'm going to stand for the truth, I stand for not only for the children, I'm going to stand for the teachers, I'm going to stand for the principal, I'm standing for the children I stand for what I believe in," said Lynda Weaver, Potential School Board candidate.

Weaver said the school system should follow though with their CRCT investigation. She said if she's elected, she'd like to build unity between teachers, parents, and administrators.
