Next month voters in Richmond County District 8 will go to the polls to elect a new school board member. In my opinion there is only one clear choice, and that is Burles Johnson.
I have known Mr. Johnson for more than 14 years. It is doubtful that you could find anyone more involved in civic activities than he is. It is also doubtful that you would find anyone more involved in the Richmond County school system.
He is a past Cub Scout den leader and a board of director member and coach for the Dixie Youth Baseball League. Mr. Johnson has served as co-president of the Richmond County Association for the Gifted; president of Davidson Fine Arts Choral Club; president of Davidson Fine Arts PTA; and is currently the vice-president of the District 11 Georgia PTA Council.
