Gus Guadagnino of Spring Hill wants vacant Hernando School Board seat


Guadagnino wants School Board seat

Add another applicant touting his business experience to the list of hopefuls interested in the Hernando School Board seat left vacant earlier this month by Pat Fagan. Gus Guadagnino, 57, of Spring Hill submitted his application to Gov. Rick Scott's office Monday. Guadagnino is president of Joni Industries, a Brooksville company that makes promotional items. "With my background in business after 40-some years, and making some heavy decisions along the way, I think I can put a good head on the dais," Guadagnino said. His two grown children attended private school, but Guadagnino said he has experience with the district after serving with the Hernando Education Foundation for more than a decade. He is now the group's president. The other applicants for the post so far are Keane Chapman, Vi Coogler, Anna Liisa Covell and Robert Neuhausen. Scott's office has not said when the appointment will be made.
