Dothan businessman, Charles Woodall, announced Wednesday he plans to fill Gayla White's vacated District 3 seat in the upcoming July school board election.
Woodall says he was not dissuaded by the current economic conditions that might limit the board's ability to improve things in the short-term.
Woodall has two daughters in Dothan city schools and says he wants to continue the progress the current school board has made in recent years.
“All the members of the current board have done what I think is a pretty good job and I feel like I can step into that role and continue on and build on what they've already accomplished in the last few years,” said Woodall.
Voting in this year's school board election will take place Tuesday, July 14th.
