Valdosta - South Georgians are getting a chance to learn about their school board candidates.

Thursday night, the Lowndes County Board of Education is holding a public forum with the candidates for the District two school board seat. Vying for the position are Bill Rountree, Fred Wetherington, Abby Rozar, Norman Bennett, Emily Gregory, and Tara Parker.

Willie Linahan previously occupied the seat, but resigned last month after being charged with bank and mail fraud.

"I think its very important that the community come out and support this because this person will be representing their interest on the Lowndes County school board," said Superintendent Steve Smith.

The forum starts at 7:00 at Hahira Middle School. The board will appoint someone to the seat at their March 30th meeting.
