Jan Moore, the business editor of the Statesboro Herald in south Georgia, has announced that she is running for mayor of the town.

She is also a psychologist for the local school system.

Jason Wermers of The Herald writes, “Moore said she has the support of both of her employers to run for mayor.

“Jim Healy, the operations manager for the Herald, expressed his support for Moore.

“‘I’ve worked with Jan for almost 10 years and she has earned my respect for her professionalism and thanks for helping launch the Herald’s business section in 2004,’ he said. ‘I also consider Jan a friend. I believe she would be a great mayor. She would represent the best interests of all citizens in making Statesboro a better place to live, work and do business.’

“Bulloch County Schools Superintendent Charles Wilson sent an email to the school board Friday letting them know that he supports Moore’s decision.

”Ms. Moore is a consummate professional who is dedicated to our students and her job with the Bulloch County School System, so I am not concerned about her ability or intentions,’ Wilson said in the email.

“‘We are very fortunate to have leaders such as this in our school system, who are willing to make that additional personal sacrifice to serve our community,’ he added later in the email.”
