On Tuesday, Gov. Nathan Deal canned six DeKalb County board members. After giving them the boot, he created a nominating panel tasked with finding their replacements. Starting now, prospective school board members can apply for the positions:
Applicants should send the following information to firstname.lastname@example.org:
1. Legal name, contact information and home address
2. District seat for which one is applying
3. Resume, CV and/or brief biography
4. Statement of interest
The panel will accept applications until March 6 at 5 p.m.
Plus points for anyone who incorporates former board member Eugene Walker's epic quote - "I was elected by the people, but I work for God" - in his or her statement of interest.
