Commissioner candidate a finalist - in Colorado
William Harner, one of seven hopefuls for Florida's education commissioner post, must really want a new job. Just days before he's scheduled to visit with the State Board of Education about the state's top job, Harner has been named a finalist today for the superintendent's position in Steamboat Springs, Colo., the Steamboat Pilot and Today reports. Earlier this year, he was selected to lead the Toledo, Ohio, school district but walked away from negotiations. (See the Toledo Blade story here.) Guess we'll have to wait and see if he makes it to Tampa for his interview Monday. Harner currently is a deputy to the chief executive of Philadelphia (Penn.) public schools.
