Pasco School Board member Kathryn Starkey says she's 'fine'



Kstarkey On Tuesday afternoon, Pasco County School Board member Kathryn Starkey left a workshop with pains in her side and went to the hospital for an evaluation.

Today, Starkey tells the Gradebook that although she was in "a lot of pain ... I convinced them I'm going to be fine."

Starkey, a candidate for Florida House District 45, acknowledged that she remains on watch and will head back to the hospital if she experiences more pain or if her temperature rises. But she planned Wednesday to go to a contract signing at Pasco-Hernando Community College and to otherwise tend to her business.
