DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - Representative Darrel Ealum's daughter is following her father into politics.
Friday afternoon, Susie Ealum kicked off her campaign for Dougherty County School Board. She graduated from Darton State College and the University of Georgia and served as a Lieutenant in the Marine Corps.
Ealum says she can use her leadership skills to improve the school system.
"It is important that we all understand that over the past three or four years we have made tremendous strides, but we also need to look as a whole and there is improvement to be gained," said Ealum.
Ealum hopes to replace Lane Price at the large seat.
The election is on May 24.
