Candidate to make third run for School Board in Hernando County

BROOKSVILLE — Robert Neuhausen is hoping the third time will be the charm.

On Thursday, Neuhausen filed to run for the District 5 Hernando County School Board seat in 2014. The seat is held by Cynthia Moore, who has not announced whether she will run again.

Neuhausen ran unsuccessfully for School Board in 2008 and 2012, when he suffered a double-digit loss to Gus Guadagnino in the District 4 runoff election.

Neuhausen, 45, has lived in Hernando for more than 20 years and has three children in the school system. A purchasing manager and export control manager, he has been active at his kids' schools. He said he decided on running for School Board again after the current board voted to eliminate high school valedictorians and salutatorians, then quickly reversed the decision.

"I have always held the stance that the School Board has never really been in touch with what goes on in the schools," he said.

Neuhausen, who currently lives in Spring Hill, said he plans to move within a month to District 5, which includes most of Brooksville and areas north, east and south of the city.

  5. Bucs top Jaguars behind strong first half



    There is a reason why the air in Tampa Bay is filled with playoff talk. If Thursday night's 12-8 Bucs preseason win over the Jaguars is any indication, it's also going to be filled with footballs thrown by quarterback Jameis Winston.

    Doug Martin gets the Bucs’ only touchdown  on a 2-yard run, squeaking past linebacker Telvin Smith in the first quarter. He has five carries for 30 yards.
