Dan Mosteller, representing the Samuel Mosteller for Superintendent campaign, addressed the Chattooga Democrats at their May 14th meeting. Dan is the brother of Samuel Mosteller who is running for Georgia Superintendent of Schools.

Dan spoke about Samuel’s extensive background in education as a teacher and his key issues which include more emphasis on reading skills throughout Georgia schools.  Samuel Mosteller is a native of Summerville, attended Chattooga County public schools and a graduate of  West Georgia College.

After a military career of over two decades, he retired as a Major, distinguished by five service medals. Since that time, he has served as pastor, Sunday school teacher, and Headmaster of a Christian school, in addition to serving on many notable boards and community activism organizations. He and his wife Kimberly have been married for 36 years, and have two sons and two granddaughters.

Mosteller is facing two Democratic primary challengers: Sid Chapman, a former high school teacher serving as president of the Georgia Association of Educators and Otha Thornton, former president of the National PTA.  The winner of the Democratic Primary will go on to face the Republican candidate in November.  The Republican race is between current State School Superintendent Richard Woods and former State School Superintendent John Barge.

Primary elections will be held on May 22nd.
