If Curbelo wins the election against Joe Garcia (hardly likely since he is such a putz) the governor appoints someone to represent the school district from now to November 2016 which is the next election.
Curbelo does not have to resign until January but obviously he will resign early if Charlie Crist wins
so that Scott will name his replacement.
The Academica people are pushing to have a charter school principal named so that there will be "charter representation" on the board. When there were vacancies on the Broward county school board Scott named pro-charter people but was never
as blatant as to name a charter employee.
Should they name a pro-charter person that person would
be a minority on the board. The biggest damage would be done in Tallahassee where this person would be by law allowed
to lobby and contradict the rest of the School Board one legislator at a time.
The fight in Tallahassee this year will include a charters school agenda for more funds and the further expansion of vouchers which is a priority for incoming leadership.
