Lauren Book won't run for Broward School Board

Lauren Book, the daughter of mega-lobbyist Ron Book, will not be running for Broward School Board.

Book had been contemplating a run for the Northwest Broward seat being vacated by Stephanie Kraft.

On Tuesday, Book said she won't be seeking the job because she wants to remain focused on her nonprofit that educates the public about child sexual abuse. "I'm going to take the next few years to grow Lauren's Kids," she said.

Six people have filed to run for Kraft's post: Jaemi Levine, Penny Madden, Robert Mayersohn, Don Samuels, Dave Thomas and Stew Jackson Webster.
