DOUGHERTY CO., GA (WALB) - A former Dougherty County educator kicked off a campaign for the school board Tuesday night.
Geraldine West Hudley has more than 40 years experience in public education.
She said she decided to run after receiving encouragement from former students.
Hudley said that she wants to work as a board member to ensure that policy is in place.
"It is my desire to also further build collaborative teams and create a spirit of learning on the board so that we remain on the cutting edge of what's happening in education," said Hudley.
Hudley hopes to replace Lane Price in the at large seat.
Susie Ealum is also running in the May 24th Democratic primary in that race.
