Former Columbus NAACP President announces candidacy for MCSB

COLUMBUS, Ga. -

Former Columbus NAACP President Nate Sanderson officially announced his candidacy for the Muscogee County School Board on Thursday.

He will run for the at-large spot left vacant by Cathy Williams, who said she will not run for re-election. Sanderson stepped down from the NAACP to run for the position. He says he hopes to accomplish three things for the school board: better leadership, more confidence from the community and better fiscal management.

“I've been there. I've been on the tough issues,” says Sanderson. “When it was time to take a stance, I took a stance and when it comes time to take a stance in the future, I will take a stance in the future for the children of Muscogee County.”

Sanderson also says he would like to encourage more transparency with the school board. He mentioned the recent vote on the school district's legal counsel, he says he would have voted that they open up the bid process.

Sanderson will go up against former educator and businesswoman Kia Chambers who announced in October she would run for the at-large school board vacancy.
