Liberty County superintendent resigns with two weeks to go
Sue Summers had a little more than two weeks left on the job as Liberty County schools superintendent. But with Election Day approaching, Summers apparently decided enough was enough.
The one-term Democrat, who lost her reelection bid in the August 14 primary election, stepped down, leaving a vacancy until the official Nov. 20 swearing in of her replacement. So today Gov. Rick Scott appointed Gay Johnson Uzzell, who took 58 percent of the vote to defeat Summers, to serve until she takes the oath again.
Liberty County has 4,424 registered voters, of whom 3,724 are Democrats. No Republican sought the superintendency.
