Jen Falk is challenging incumbent Dr. Mary Kay Murphy for the District III seat, which includes some Norcross schools.

Jen Falk, who is seeking election to the Gwinnett District III school board seat, has surpassed $6,000 in cash and in-kind campaign contributions, according to the latest data filed with state officials.

Falk, a Berkeley Lake resident, lists several itemized cash contributions from Gwinnett and from Duluth, which has several schools in that district.

Among the latest contributors:

  • Sabrina Smith, a Lawrenceville teaching consultant ($100);
  • Jenny Jensen, a Duluth attorney ($100);
  • Frugally Yours, a Duluth business ($100);
  • Kathy Galbreath, a Duluth financial services worker ($100).

In-kind contributions are those made in such things as goods and services. Falk's cash contributions exceed $5,500.

She is seeking the seat currently held by Dr. Mary Kay Murphy, a Republican.

Murphy's contribution totals through June are about $6,300.

District III includes Norcross, North Gwinnett, Peachtree Ridge, Duluth and high schools.
