ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A retired educator says she won't respond directly to criticism from her opponent in a Dougherty County School Board race.
During a Tuesday afternoon news conference, Geraldine West Hudley would not comment on charges from opponent Susie Ealum that Radium Middle School was the lowest-performing middle school in the county when Hudley was principal.
Hudley says she doesn't know where Ealum got that information and she'll let her experience as an educator speak for itself. Hudley says she's focused on the At-Large position.
"I'm preparing to know more by reading the policy manual, studying the Charter School system, and thirdly studying all that I can find out about the college and career academy," said Geraldine West Hudley, Dougherty County School Board Candidate.
Ealum supporters were at Hudley's news conference holding signs.
The two are campaigning for the At-Large seat currently held by Dr. Lane Price.
