BOE Chair Anderson will Not Seek Re-Election

Carrol County Ga -- Dr. Jon Anderson, longtime Board of Education Chairman for the Carroll County School District, has told WLBB radio that he will not seek re-election for his District Seven seat in 2018. District Seven is regarded as representing the Central Schools cluster.

Anderson's decision not to run again has to do with his new job with Middle Georgia State University as Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs, starting in the new year. He had been a professor of management with the University of West Georgia.

Anderson said he will continue to work with the board until a qualified candidate is approved by voters in May of 2018. Qualifying for the District Seven board seat begins in March.
