Godfrey to make run for school board

By Staff
FLOWERY BRANCH - In a press statement, Dr. Paul Godfrey announced Monday he will run for the at-large post on the Hall County Board of Education.

Godfrey announced intentions to run last summer. Godfrey, who is active in the Republican Party, taught in both Hall and Habersham counties for 15 years. He has five college degrees, including a Doctorate in Workforce Education, Leadership and Social Foundations, according to his press statement.

He is a decorated veteran with 23 years in the United States
Air Force.

"I declared for this election back in July 2013 when the current board once
again raised your tax millage rate," said Godfrey. "At the time I thought that the Press would 'little note, nor long remember' that event. Unlike Lincoln, I was right. I am doing this because I think I have the skills, experiences, and beliefs the school system needs to be more frugal and to reach greater excellence."
