More on latest Broward School Board applicants

Here;s a little more on the four people who submitted applications Thursday to be appointed to suspended Broward School Board member Beverly Gallagher's seat:

--Donna P. Korn, a former Broward high school teacher who lives in Davie, ran against Gallagher in 2000 -- and only lost by 244 votes. She works in commercial real estate. A Democrat, she is also a guardian ad litem volunteer and past chair of the school district's facilities watchdog group, as well as a member of several other board.

--Cheryl W. Krause, who ran for School Board in the late 1990s, is a Pembroke Pines Republican who works in web retail of specialty health care products. Gov. Jeb Bush appointed her to the district board of trustees for Broward Community College, and she has served on several parent advisory groups, including the Broward Council of PTAs.

--William H. Teat, a former teacher who lives in Fort Lauderdale, has a background in engineering and wrote in his questionnaire that he is a registered Democrat "but mostly vote[s] Republican."

--Kevin P. Tynan of Pembroke Pines is a Republican attorney who, among other things, was appointed by Bush to serve on the South Broward Hospital District board of commissioners. A former Broward GOP chair, he lists current chair Chip LaMarca and U.S. Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart, a Miami Republican, as references -- as well as Krause, who is also applying for the seat. Krause lists Tynan as a reference, too.

That's 11 people who have raised their hands for the seat thus far. It could take weeks for Gov. Charlie Crist to pick someone. Read more about the others here, here, here and here.
