School board approves Mosely contract

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dougherty County School Board approves the contract for superintendent Dr. David Mosely.

Mosely came out of retirement to temporarily take the position but a suitable replacement was not found. Darrel Ealum argues it will take a $225,000 salary to turn the school system around.

The vote was 5 to 2 in favor the contract. Velvet Riggins and James Bush opposed the contract. Bush stated he will support Mosely but feels $225,000, a $5,000 expense account and $1,000 a month for vehicle expense is too much.    

"I cannot unequivocally vote for a 225 thousand dollar contract when we are laying off employees," said School Board member James Bush.            

"I could go home and hunt fish and play on the farm and make 160 thousand dollars next year so if you subtract 160 from 225 you can readily see the bottom lime what I'm working for," said Dr. David Mosely.

Mosely says it's more than money for him and he wants to work is ready to move on with the tasks at hand.
