Another Candidate for School Board District 5 Seat

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's running for the seat held by Rob Varner, who chose not to seek re-election this year. Mcrae told News Leader Nine how she is planning to approach 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," says Mcrae.

The deadline for all candidates to qualify for the May 24th primaries in Georgia is Friday, March 11th at noon.
