Ron Price announced Wednesday he is seeking a spot on the Albemarle County School Board.

Sue Bell Friedman, the current Rivanna District representative, announced she will not seek re-election. Price said the biggest issues facing Albemarle County schools are growth and closing the achievement gap. He said he will work to help fix those problems.

"What do we do with all the students that are here today and the ones that are coming? How do we manage that growth without upsetting the balance of contiguous neighborhoods? Also, how do we at least provide a quality education with the growth?" said Price.

Price has previously served as president of the Stony Point Elementary PTO and CATEC Planning Committee.
