Candidates for Florida Commissioner Named

The Florida State Board of Education narrowed down the list of candidates to fill John Winn's shoes after his departure at the beginning of the Crist administration. The board will interview seven candidates, including two former chiefs, Cheri Yecke from Minnesota and Bill Moloney from Colorado, in mid-September. The board voted 4-3 not to interview four applicants who turned in applications after the deadline, including the head of the Florida school superintendents association, Bill Montford, who had received support from the Governor.
