Her son attends Washington High School, where many generations of her family have graduated.
Baldon raised more than $37,000 to fund her campaign so far, the most of any school board candidate. Her website lists her as the president of the parent teacher organization at KIPP Atlanta Collegiate, a charter high school located in District 2.
She works in freelance photography and marketing.
“Our campaign is built around the belief that every child is able to attend a quality neighborhood public school. It's long overdue for schools on Atlanta’s Southwest and Westside to receive the resources they need and the respect they deserve so that all students are reading, writing, and doing math on grade level,” said Baldon, in a statement released Wednesday.
Winners in the Fulton County commission race were Joe Carn, a former College Park city councilman, and Gordon Joyner, a former Fulton County commissioner. The winner of that election will fill the District 6 seat vacated by Emma Darnell, who died this spring.
The District 6 commissioner represents much the south part of Fulton County, including all or part of nine cities and the last unincorporated part of Fulton.
Neither Carn nor Joyner returned several phone calls seeking comment.
Carn, 48, left his job in the Fulton solicitor’s office earlier this summer. He lost re-election to the College Park City Council by just two votes in 2017. He said in a community forum this year that he wants to streamline the court system, keep residential property taxes from rising and improve senior services.
Joyner, 69, served on the Fulton County commission from 1987-1998. He said previously that he’s best qualified to be in county government because he understands the responsibilities of the position.
The unofficial results were completed just after 11 p.m. Tuesday. Earlier in the day, two voter check-in computers were stolen from an Atlanta voting precinct, the Grove Park Recreation Center. Polls opened as normal and the theft did not affect the election, Fulton elections director Richard Barron said.
