Pasco School Board member files for reelection



full.gifAs expected, Pasco County School Board member Alison Crumbley has filed papers to seek a full four-year term in her District 4 seat representing west-central Pasco.

Crumbley won her post in 2010, but it was to complete the term of Kathryn Starkey, who resigned to mount an unsuccessful bid for a Florida House seat.

"We have a lot of work that has yet to be started, and a lot that has to be done," Crumbley said as she entered the Supervisor of Elections office to submit her paperwork. Her top four priorities are: continuing to find ways to spend more efficiently, to improve employee morale, to encourage more parent involvement, and to address student substance abuse problems.

So far, no one else has announced plans to run for the job, which pays the same amount as a first-year district teacher. Official qualifying begins in June.
