Incumbent Pinellas School Board members Peggy O’Shea and Mary Brown tell the Gradebook they will seek re-election.

“I’ve only been on one term … it hasn’t worn me out yet,” said O’Shea, who holds the at-large District 3 seat. “We’ve really got some good things going on (in the district). It’s time to see it through.”

“I feel we’re on a good path to make some changes in the district,” said Brown, who first won the District 7 seat in 2002. “I’d like to help make this happen.”
