ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dougherty County School Board member, David Maschke has a new opponent in the race for the District 1 school board seat, a position he's held for eight years. Democrat nominee Judith Corbitt withdrew . So the Democratic party chose a replacement candidate, Dr. Richard Anson. Maschke says he expected the Party to find a replacement candidate. But isn't letting a new opponent alter his views or goals for the school system he serves.

"Regardless of who the candidate is that's running against me, or even if there was not somebody gonna' be running against me, my commitment is still the same. My efforts are going to continue to be to address the needs of the students and the school system in dougherty county to work aggressively to improve test scores, and to continue to be a watchdog over tax payers dollars," says Maschke.

Maschke says he is looking forward to putting his eight years of service up against Anson's twelve years of work. He says he's confident the voters of Dougherty County will make the right decision, but thinks it's important people just make it to the polls at all, after the low turn out in the primary. Feedback
