Johnson good pick for school board



I am supporting Burles Johnson in south Augusta's District 8 Richmond County Board of Education race. Mr. Johnson is highly qualified for this position. As an owner of his own business, Mr. Johnson knows the importance of operating and budgetary controls.

As a father of two children, he knows the importance of a strong educational system. Mr. Johnson has been active in his children's educational experience by serving as Parent Teacher Association president at their school, Davidson Fine Arts.

Mr. Johnson's experience as a businessman and PTA leader makes him uniquely qualified to serve as your school board representative. ... His years of experience within the system will allow for a strong voice in restoring sound fiscal and strong academic policy to our schools.
