Marvin Allen seeks Republican nomination for a seat on the Board of Education.

Allen is a lifelong resident of Fannin County and a graduate of Fannin County High School. Allen is also is the father of four children who have all attended and graduated from the Fannin County School System.

“I am not a politician,” Allen said opening his dialogue to the Republican party.

“I have a great concern for our children’s safety and well-being while they are receiving the best education possible,” Allen spoke of what led him to run for this public office.

Allen also expressed that his concerns lay with the taxpayers of the county. If elected to office, he hopes to work with the board on spending issues that will allow for continuing to maintain “a fair millage rate that the citizens of Fannin County can afford.”

Allen stressed, “I do care about the children of this county, and I care about their safety and their education.”

Allen will face incumbent Bobby Bearden for a seat on the Board of Education in the May General Primary. The winner of this primary will go on to face Democratic nominee Jeff DePaola in the November General Election.

The May General Primary is scheduled to take place May 22, 2018. Voter registration deadline for the General Primary Election is April 23.
