ALBANY, GA (WALB) - School board candidates are gearing up for the Tuesday's primary election. WALB News Ten's Tayleigh Davis spent the day with one School Board Candidate.
Darrel Ealum is running for the district six position to replace incumbent Michael Windom. She went along with Ealum as he went door to door doing some last minute campaigning.
This isn't the first time Darrel Ealum has gone door to door asking neighbors for their vote. Ealum started his campaign in the Eastgate subdivision in May. Saturday, alone, he's spent hours following up with residents.
"By far the largest majority of the people have been extremely open," said Ealum.
Ealum says he's visited every subdivision in east Albany's District six which has more than 4,000 registered voter households.
"We've had some people who don't want to be involved and we've had some people who say that's outstanding and we need help on the school board," Ealum noted.
Ealum's campaign encourages parents to engage with their children's school.
" Our district has a large number of single parents so we have to figure out a way to bring those parents into the school," Ealum added.
Ealum made that known on his walk as he spoke to a few students in the neighborhood.
"We want to do everything to get the parents excited to coming and to make them feel welcome," Ealum said.
"It shows support where they were there for you cheering you on and making sure you do well," said student, Ivory Scott.
Ealum, who is running against Dean Phinazee, says he'll be out in the neighborhoods until election day on Tuesday.
