James (Jim) McMahan has registered for District 4 for DeKalb County school board also. He is on the school council at Sagamore Hills ES and at Henderson Middle School and has been the PTA rep for all of Lakeside HS feeder schools. He is well informed and has been an active part of changing the culture of DeKalb County Schools. Go get them Jim, we're behind you! I wonder if the DeKalb School Watch will endorse a candidate? S7
