Seminole County voters will decide the District 5 seat on the Seminole County School Board in a run-off election between Tina Calderone and Becky Erwin. The winner will join Karen Almond, who was elected on August 24, as the newest members of the school board.
This run-off election will be held as part of the general election on Nov. 2, 2010. Early voting begins October 18 until Oct 31. and absentee ballots are available at the Supervisor of Elections website.
The school board member office is non-partisan. The term of each of the 5 public school board members is 4 years. A member may serve an unlimited number of terms if re-qualified and elected. A school board member’s annual salary is set by the Florida legislature at $ 36,000 which is the equivalent of the district’s compensation for a first year teacher with a baccalaureate degree.
This condensed feature was originally recorded at a voter forum on July 28, 2010 at Crooms Academy of Information Technology, a magnet high school in Sanford, Florida. The forum was co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Seminole County and the Seminole County Council of Parents and Teachers and drew more than 125 League and PTA members and members of the public. The event was hosted by Deana Schott, immediate past president of the League, and Laura Joralemon, president of the Seminole County Council of PTA. The Q/A portions were moderated by Wayne Weinberg, president of Leadership Seminole and Envision Seminole.
