DeKalb School Board Candidates 2010

September 16, 2010

Here is a short list of candidates running to unseat some incumbents at the DeKalb school board. I have had conversations with several of them, and I think each is qualified for the board. I think it would be a good move to toss out all of the members up for election. The turnover might do some good, and there will be enough members left so that we do not have a completely inexperienced board. I implore you to at least take a look at these people. Remember, the people on the board now are not entitled to those positions. Just as they were elected to serve, the can just as easily be yanked in favor of fresh leadership.

District 1

Bobbe Gillis



Nancy Jester



District 3

Corey E. Wilson



District 5

Dr. Kirk Nooks



Jacques Hall Jr.


District 7

Richard Gathany


Donna Edler


District 9

Ella Smith

    Hello South DeKalb Blogger!
    Just read your comment about trying to reach me. I’m guessing that you called my home number. Please call my mobile number as that is THE BEST way to get me or leave me a voicemail (678.360.1148). I would be more than happy to speak with you about the campaign and DCSS. Alteratively, you can email me at nancyjester@gmail.com. I look forward to speaking with you!
    –Nancy Jester

    That’s surprising. Nancy is usually very responsive. Please check out our post at DeKalb school watch also. We have a pretty good list of candidate bios (the people who sent them at least!)

    Here’s her website.

    Email her at this website:

    I’ve found her very responsive – unlike her competitor – BOE incumbent Jim Redovian.

    I totally agree. All of the current BOE need to go.

      Thanks for the info. I called Ms. Jester and left two messages. I wanted to verify that someone was actually running before I posted info on them. She never returned my calls. She was not alone. Several candidates have been left off for that reason. I chalked it up to their being busy, but I will put her info once I verify her site.
