Hernando assistant principal withdraws from School Board race

BROOKSVILLE — Assistant Pine Grove Elementary School principal Heather Urban has withdrawn from the District 5 Hernando County School Board race, leaving incumbent Cynthia Moore and two challengers.

Urban, who entered the race in April, pulled out on June 5. She did not return calls from the Tampa Bay Times seeking comment.

Urban, 46, said she was running for office because she felt that she could have more of an impact by working with all schools instead of just one. She said safety was her top priority and supported having a resource officer at every school.

Urban has been with the school district since 2002 and has been in education for about 17 years. In Hernando, she has taught and been an administrator at several schools.

Urban served as the assistant principal at Eastside Elementary School for the 2012-13 school year, when the school received the district's first F grade from the state. She was then transferred to Pine Grove.

Other candidates in the nonpartisan race include Moore, Anna Liisa Covell and Robert Neuhausen.
