Albany- Walking the neighborhoods in District 5 are familiar tracks for C.W. Grant.
He's running for re-election to the school board. If he wins, this will be Grant's second full term on the school board. He replaced Robert Cross on the board when he died in 2000. He's currently the board's chairman.
"I think that I have made an excellent contribution and I simply want to continue in that vain," Grant said.
And continue being part of a board that he says is making a difference.
"I would like to continue seeing us doing the programmatic things we need to do to continue to increase the test scores. A board that doesn't waste time micromanaging paid professionals.
"Rather let the Superintendent and her staff run the system. They're quite capable of it and we're getting excellent, excellent results as a result of that."
Grant says his opponent James Bush is campaigning on the controversy about the Home Drive property. The board decided against building a school on the property twice after outcry from the community.
"Rather than have a continuous controversy about the site of a school we did elect to find another site to build the school and that's exactly what we're going to do."
He wants voters to know, he feels like the board made the right choice. And he hopes that's a sign that they can trust him with more decisions.
"I have a need to make a contribution. All my life I've done that."
He wants to keep doing that in Dougherty County, taking every step he can to keep watching out for children.
