BROOKSVILLE — Hernando County School Board member Dianne Bonfield has filed to run for a third term as the District 3 representative.

With Bonfield's name in the ring, the three incumbent School Board members up for election in 2014 all are in the race. Board members John Sweeney and Cynthia Moore filed previously.

Bonfield, 65, has held the seat since 2006. Now retired, she taught for 28 years. She said some of the biggest issues facing the district are monetary, and she believes someone with experience is needed on the board.

Bonfield said she also wants to return busing for students living within 2 miles of their schools.

"I was never in favor of us doing away with the 2-mile-and-under busing," she said.

In addition, Bonfield said she is eager to work with superintendent Lori Romano, who took over in July.

Also in the District 3 race is Elizabeth Narverud, a former Hernando County Education Foundation director and the owner of several Domino's Pizza stores in Hernando and Pasco.
