Former Labor Commissioner Michael Thurmond is the new Interim Chair of Dekalb County Schools.
He was approved as chair at a Friday vote from the county school board.
“We are delighted Mr. Thurmond has agreed to serve as our interim superintendent,” said Board Chairman Eugene Walker. “Our school district is facing significant challenges, and we need a leader with a strong record of making fundamental changes in large, complex organizations. Throughout our state, you’ll find almost universal agreement that Michael Thurmond has consistently demonstrated those abilities.”
I’ve heard rumors that he wants to run for something again. This seems like a good way to re-establish himself politically, especially considering his disastrous and embarrassing Senate “campaign” in 2010.
Which leads me to my next question: which Mike will we get? While I’m not smart with regards to the internet (or, really, anything at all), methinks he may want to do something about how Google displays his Senate campaign website.
