Hail to the guv'na

(ran PC edition)

Joni Cagle, a 43-year-old softball mom who teaches developmentally disabled students at Hunter's Green Elementary School, became Lutz's new guv'na Friday. Cagle won a fundraising contest over rivals Allan Himes and Sondra Guffey. She raised $6,100. Together, the candidates raised $12,000. The money is used to support a variety of community causes. Cagle replaces Brett Montegny, owner of a consignment shop. The naming of a new guv'na caps off Lutz's annual July Fourth celebration, which includes a parade, a barbecue, a cake-baking contest and a pair of foot races.
