Brad Owens is school board pick



As a concerned citizen and parent of Augusta-Richmond County students, I believe our children deserve the best education that our school system can provide. Even with increased parental involvement and excellent teachers, our children may not receive the best education if we do not choose committed leaders who are not only responsible but responsive to the needs of students. It is for these reasons that I support Brad Owens for school board in Richmond County's 8th District.

I have known Mr. Owens for several years and I know him to be honest, intelligent and a man of character. He has demonstrated a concern not only for the schools, but for the county in general. I believe he has the commitment, vision and the courage to make the difficult choices that will be required of our leaders. ...
