Florence Bellamy announces candidacy for Phenix City School Board at large

Former school board member is throwing her name into the hat for the at large seat

Phenix City, Ala. (WTVM) - A former Phenix City School Board member of more than two decades is throwing her name into the hat for the at-large seat.

Florence Bellamy held her campaign kick-off last night by the Phenix City Amphitheatre.

Bellamy says she never stopped her work in the community following her service as a school board member.

She says she felt the need to come back and serve during these unprecedented times.

“I want our students and families to feel a sense of confidence that the school district is working in their best interest, their favor, their well-being as well as community engagement,” said Bellamy. “I want the citizens to understand that the school system is a partner with them.”

This will be Phenix City’s first school board election after discontinuing appointed positions. Voters will cast their ballots on August 25.
