Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

School board campaign season kicks off Tuesday



Seems early, doesn't it? But candidates are already campaigning for Hillsborough County School Board seats.

This Tuesday evening, six candidates will stump for the countywide District 6 seat at a 7 p.m. meeting of the Tampa Bay Young Republicans. The venue is the CopperFish restaurant in south Tampa, and cocktail hour is at 6:30.

Confirmed, according to the organization's Facebook page, are Stacy Hahn, Russ Patterson, Dipa Shah, Paula Meckley, Randall Toler and Alison Fernandez.

As reported previously, 17 have signed on to replace three who are leaving: April Griffin, Stacy White (who is running for Hillsborough County Commission) and Candy Olson.
