Candidate for Pasco board surfaces at board meeting



Overheard at the Pasco County School Board meeting this morning:

"I'm Sallie Skipper, and I'm running for Cathi Martin's seat. I haven't announced yet. Well, I guess I just did."

Skipper, a New Port Richey lawyer who served as superintendent Heather Fiorentino's 2008 campaign treasurer, filed an application with the governor's office last spring when Martin had indicated that she might resign.

Martin stuck around, and her seat comes up for election in 2010. She told the Gradebook she had not decided whether to seek re-election.
