Brooksville business owner enters race for Hernando School Board

BROOKSVILLE — A second challenger for the District 5 Hernando County School Board seat has entered the race, hoping to unseat incumbent Cynthia Moore.

On Friday morning, Nobleton resident Anna Liisa Covell filed for the seat, saying she believes the School Board is in need of some new blood.

"I believe it is time for a change in attitude and time for a change in regime," she said.

Covell, 63, co-owner of A.L. Covell Electric in Brooksville, said she was disappointed by the poor performance of many of the district's schools in the latest round of school grades and wants to change the mind-set in the district.

She said she has simple goals, with an ultimate mission of improving school performance and success and doing what is best for students. She also said she would support teachers, provide clear and concise information to parents and to be well prepared for meetings.

Also in the District 5 race is Robert Neuhausen.

Previously, Covell made two unsuccessful runs for Hernando County Commission.

    If a team hopes to hang around the pennant race, they better have an ace. A stopper. A pitcher they can count on every fifth day to stop the bleeding, keep a winning streak going or flat-out win a game that a team flat-out needs to win.
