Although the school board members do represent districts, they are elected at large. Dean Blinkhorn is officially announcing his bid for office for District 4, held by Sue Mosley is who not running for re-election. Dean grew up in our area, is a graduate of Lake Weir High and College of Central Florid (CFCC) and the University of Florida. He is a former educator from Belleview High School and has been an award-winning editor of Ocala Style Magazine for 11 years. His wife Karen teachers music at Sunrise Elementary and their daughter attends Howard Middle School. Dean has been involved in several organizations throughout the community and is past president of the Public Education Foundation of Marion County. He brings business and financial experience, a perspective from the educator and also strong leadership skills. He has always attended local events so chances are you will see him at a community gathering, so take some time to visit with him. He would love to hear your thoughts on education in our community, and he will be a terrific school board member.

I only know of one candidate for Marion County School Board that has nothing to gain financially when she is elected because after working her way up for 13yrs, she will have to quit her position as a District level Certified Teacher and Behavior Specialist when she is elected. She is running on an agenda of allocating resources effectively, getting dollars to the classroom and encouraging parent/community involvement. She also goes to Tallahassee to lobby for Education every year on her own dime. This candidate is Nancy Lefevre Thrower. Hmmmmm....
