Pinellas County superintendent, School Board candidates

Who will run Pinellas schools?

Three people who want to be Pinellas County's next superintendent will be in the district Wednesday and Thursday to interview for the post. School Board members will hold public interviews on Wednesday starting at 11 a.m. at district headquarters, 301 Fourth St. SW, Largo. Four candidates will be publicly interviewed before one-on-one meetings with board members Thursday. The board will meet in a workshop on Aug. 28, to discuss the candidates and decide whether members want to bring any of the candidates back for another round.

More campaigning for board candidates

Four people on Tuesday advanced to the Nov. 6 general election in their bids to secure two open seats on the School Board. Former St. Petersburg City Council member Rene Flowers will face Gov. Rick Scott appointee Glenton Gilzean Jr. in the contest to secure two more years in the open District 7 race representing south Pinellas. The pair were the top two vote-getters in the five-way race. District 1 at-large incumbent Janet Clark pulled in nearly 35 percent of the vote with retired businessman Elliot Stern following with almost 26 percent.
