Abby Freedman, a Parkland Democrat, has filed campaign paperwork for the Broward School Board At-Large (District 8) seat. Earlier in the week, Andrew Luciani jumped into the race. School Board Member Donna Korn is running for this seat as is Franklin Sands (D-Got Big Payments From The Florida Democrat Party).
Did Team Sands add people to the race in the hopes of setting up a November faceoff with Korn? This formerly two-person race favored Ms. Korn, a longtime Broward Schools activist. Sands, who spent many years in Tallahassee, is clearly out of touch with the issues affecting Broward students, parents and teachers. Despite the backing of his stepson Alex Heckler, a big fundraiser for President Obama, Sands may have feared losing a two person race against Korn in August.
