Former DeKalb school board member Nancy Jester says on her blog that she is considering running for the DeKalb County Commission seat vacated by the resignation of former Commissioner Elaine Boyer. Boyer resigned last week, a day before federal prosecutors charged her with the misuse of county money.

On her blog, Jester wrote:

“Many friends, citizens and leaders in DeKalb and around the state, have urged me to run for this vacant seat on the Commission. I am giving this careful consideration. The county as a whole needs sound, disciplined, and effective financial stewardship. The new District 1 Commissioner must work to reestablish public trust. That’s going to take hard work and new ideas about what the public should expect from elected officials and government workers regarding disclosure and transparency.”
