Cherokee County School Board member Kelly Marlow will remain on the job, at least for a while, according to a press release issued today by Governor Deal’s office:
The Governor’s Office today received a decision from Attorney General Sam Olens, Tim Stultz of the Cobb County school board and Ann Crow of the Forsyth County school board not to suspend indicted Cherokee County school board member Kelly Marlow from office.
The review commission determined that the indictment does not relate to or adversely affect Marlow’s ability to perform her official duties. The commission’s ruling is final.
Marlow was indicted by a grand jury in October on charges of making false statements to police that the school superintendent tried to run her and two others down with his car after a heated School Board meeting in June.
