ALBANY, GA (WALB) – The Dougherty County School Board did not approve a contract on Friday for the man they hired as the new superintendent more than three weeks ago.

The board met in executive session for more than an hour to discuss contract details.

Murfree sent his own proposal for the board to consider. They'll have to meet again to try to come up with a deal.

"We had a good session a lot of shared ideas, we finally instructed the attorney to take our thoughts put them together and have us look at them," Emily Jean McAfee, School Board Member.

Emily Jean McAfee was the only member who voted to discuss the issue in front of the public.

Murfree was selected to replace retiring Superintendent Sally Whatley even though questions were raised about whether he's qualified for the job.
