Hernando School Board chairman intends to run again



BROOKSVILLE -- For weeks, Hernando School Board member and new Chairman John Sweeney has said he was still on the fence about a bid for a second four-year term.

Sounds like he hopes to be back.

"I intend to run for reelection and will make a formal announcement at the proper time," Sweeney told the Gradebook in an e-mail Thursday.

As of Thursdsay, Sweeney hadn't actually filed to keep his District 1 seat. Neither have any challengers.

In the e-mailed Q and A session, Sweeney also offered his thoughts on the district's priorities and his hopes for its next superintendent. Visit the Gradebook Saturday for the full interview.
