Janet Clark is Pinellas' new board leader
Carol Cook was elected vice chairwoman.
The positions are largely ceremonial, with the chair essentially running board meetings.
"I'm okay with it, I guess," Clark told the Gradebook when asked for her reaction. "If you're on the board long enough, you have to serve in this capacity."
Clark was elected in 2004 and re-elected in 2008. The chairman serves for one year.
