School Board Candidates Debate

The race for the Savannah Chatham County School Board is really heating up. Thursday Night was a chance for voters to hear from the candidates. The Savannah Federation of Teachers hosted a political forum at the Homewood Suites. It was a huge success with 17 of the 20 candidates taking part. They're vying for school board president , first, second, third, fifth and seventh districts.

"We like our superintendent and the people who are going to be working with him. We want to make sure that they are going to embrace his ideas. We also want them to maybe come up with new ideas that he has not thought up yet. The federation wants the candidates to make our school system the world class system that Dr. Lockamy talks about all the time," said Alfreda Goldwire, Savannah Federation of Teachers President.

WTOC's Dawn Baker was the moderator for the forum. Voters will get a chance to decide for themselves at the polls in November.
