Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

On the campaign trail in Hillsborough; James and Shamburger pick up union endorsements



Cathy James and Tamara Shamburger got the coveted endorsements from the Hillsborough County Teachers Association for the upcoming School Board elections.

James, an accountant, is running against Lynn Gray, a veteran teacher, for the countywide District 7 seat. The winner will replace Carol Kurdell.

Shamburger, an insurance litigation manager, is running against Joe Jordon-Robinson, an engineer, in central Tampa's District 5, which is now represented by Doretha Edgecomb.

The union endorsement, in addition to the prestige it carries, often leads to more campaign funding from organized labor.
