SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — A campaign donation from a Georgia school superintendent to a school board candidate is raising questions.
The Savannah Morning News reports all six-district board candidates were asked at a forum last week if Savannah-Chatham County Public School System Superintendent Ann Levett had given them any campaign donations.
The candidates answered no to the Levett contribution question except for District 5 incumbent Irene Hines, who said she didn’t feel she had to reveal the information. Theresa Watson is challenging Hines.
A check of campaign donation record shows Hines reported a $100 contribution Jan. 18 from Levett.

Levett says she sought legal counsel before contributing to Hines, noting that she lives in District 5 and contributes to various community causes.
She also says the contribution was made before any opposition candidates were announced.
