Former Clarke County School District Employee Announces Campaign for Mayor


A former Clarke County School District employee has announced her campaign for mayor.

Lifelong Athens resident and former Clarke County School District employee Pearl Hall announced her campaign for mayor last month.

The Athens Banner-Herald reported that Hall retired in 2015 from the school district, where she worked as a secretary in the main office and as a coach for Athens Inc. at Clarke Central High School.

She held a campaign kickoff event on Jan. 1 at Sheats Barber and Beauty Shop on West Hancock.

Incumbent Mayor Kelly Girtz launched his re-election campaign last month. The election for mayor, odd-numbered district commissioners, and statewide primary races will take place on May 24.
