Rev. Lorenzo Heard has asked his attorneys to withdraw his lawsuit to be listed on the ballot as an independent candidate for the at-large seat on the Dougherty County Board of Education. Instead, he seems intent to remain as a write-in candidate for that seat.
He will be running against Dr. Lane Price who won the Democratic Primary against incumbent Anita Williams-Brown.
The news came at a press conference with supporters outside of the Albany-Dougherty County Government Center earlier this afternoon.
