Albany -- Some Dougherty County School Board candidates are making a final push for votes a few days before election day.

District Four challenger Jack Stone Jr. and his team walked around the Eugemar and Merry Acres Subdivisions today letting taxpayers know he is ready to make a change.  Stone says the system wasted millions of dollars by mismanaging the school lunch program.

His opponent, incumbant Emily McAfee, says her eight years of experience serving on the board are proof she will get things done.

"I've worked on many of the goals and objectives, many of the policies, our test scores are improving. I'm about the positive thigns happening in the Dougherty County schools," said Emily McAfee.

"There was 3.1 million dollars lost in the school nutrition program. They've paid a tremendous amount of money over appraised value on several properties they've purchased to build schools, I could do that and get in there and try to work on some type of initiative to get the dropout rates improved," said Jack Stone Jr.

The district two and six seats on the Dougherty County School board are also up for grabs on Tuesday.
