ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Three Dougherty County School Board members were recognized by the district's bus drivers for their attentiveness to issues throughout the year.

The Service Employees International Union local 1985 presented campaign contribution checks today to School Board members Judge Willie Weaver, Reverend James Bush, and David Maschke.

Bus driver Mary Richardson described the men as strong individuals who helped answer and deal with the driver's situation last year when their pay schedule changed.

"When you work hard all the time it makes you feel good to get an unexpected gift so I decided to write a letter to get some money for them," said Mary Richardson, a bus driver.

Drivers urged the board members to continue to lead by example and thanked them again for standing up for transportation issues.
