Frank Myers to Seek District 8 School Board Seat

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Local Attorney and Political Consultant Frank Myers announced Tuesday that he will seek the District 8 seat on the Muscogee County School Board in the May 20 election.

The seat is presently held by Beth Harris.

"Over the past few years, I have volunteered countless hours for the betterment of our local public school system," Myers said. "I have finally realized that in order to truly make things better for our kids, it is time for me to fully engage. I am confident that I can provide much-needed leadership and help change many of the misguided policies of the school board."

Myers will meet with local media Wednesday Feb. 26 at 11 a.m. at the Columbus Public Library Auditorium on Macon Road for his formal announcement.
