COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Another Muscogee County resident is tossing their hat into the race for an open seat on the board of education.

Laurie Mcrae announced her candidacy for the District 5 seat on the Muscogee County School Board at the Columbus Public Library Thursday morning.

She is running for the seat held by Rob Varner, who chose not to seek re-election this year. Mcrae spoke with us on how she's approaching this election.

“I'm really going into this open minded, I know that there are weaknesses in our public schools but there are strengths as well. I really want to come in and use my legal and accounting background to really analyze the issues and decide what needs to be done,” Mcrae said.

The deadline for all candidates to qualify for the May 24 and primaries in Georgia will be Friday at noon.
