Albany -- An active PTO member wants more responsibility, so she's running for a spot on the Dougherty County School Board.

Laura Calhoun is challenging incumbent David Maschke in the District One Republican primary.

She formerly worked for a fortune 500 company in Atlanta, but now is a stay-at-home Mom

Calhoun is active in the PTO at Live Oaks Elementary and Merry Acres Middle Schools.

"I have the time right now in my life and after spending a lot of time with PTO, I know there's some things that need to be done. And i've got the time and the passion right now to do that," said School Board Candidate Laura Calhoun.

Calhoun says she doesn't have specific goals for the school board. She simply wants to put children and their education first and bring more teamwork to the school board.
