Tifton- Tifton residents are again calling actions by the school board a double standard.
Nearly 40 residents came out to voice their opposition to Richard Golden serving as the chairman of the board. Golden was recently re-instated as chairman after pleading guilty to reduced charges of firing at a man fishing in his private pond. Parents say they're concerned about the example it sets for students.
"His actions can cause a lot of problems with our students, by what he did he set an example," said Elizabeth Newell, a concerned parent.
Golden says he understands why parents are questioning his actions.
"There's some concern there, but given what my constituents and the board members tell me they desire my leadership as chairman," he said.
Golden also said he will continue to serve at the pleasure of the board.
