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

6

October

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.
