Never too early



Fresh from the James-Gray recount, the first of the 2018 candidates for the Hillsborough County School Board have filed their papers.

Randy Toler and Bill Person are both are seeking the District 6 at-large seat now held by April Griffin.

This is the third School Board run for Toler, who got 11 percent in an eight-way primary for the District 7 seat in August.

Person, who is running for the second time, came much closer in this year's bid, finishing a little more than one percentage point behind incumbent Susan Valdes.

Toler, who works in the technology sector, is one of the founders of the U.S. Green Party. Person is a retired school district teacher, principal and administrator.
