Time for a new School Board attorney in Hernando County
The Hernando County School Board needs a new lawyer.
J. Paul Carland II, the board's attorney for the past six years, is headed to Broward County, where he'll become legal counsel to the School Board there. Broward was on its second attempt to replace longtime board attorney Ed Marko, who retired then tried to hang on to a post before ultimately agreeing to leave.
"I certainly appreciate the opportunity they want to give me," Carland said by phone after the vote.
He plans to work with Hernando officials to find a replacement before he departs.
