Patricia Good has filed to run for the Broward School Board, less than a week after Gov. Charlie Crist's office said it would hold a special election this fall to replace Beverly Gallagher.
Gallagher pleaded guilty to a federal bribery charge two weeks ago. Crist suspended Gallagher after her September arrest in a corruption sting and replaced her with former Broward GOP chair Kevin Tynan, who has said he plans to run for the seat in August.
Good, a Democrat from Pembroke Pines, applied to be appointed to Gallagher's seat before Crist picked Tynan. Good, who works as an administrator for the Miami-Dade school system, had challenged Gallagher in 2004 and lost.
School Board races are non-partisan, but Tynan is the only Republican on the board. His district 2 seat represents Southwest Broward -- including Pembroke Pines and Miramar -- and is about 53 percent Democratic and 24 percent Republican.
