PBPost: Laurie Gaylord might yet bring peace to Martin County schools

From The Palm Beach Post’s award-winning blogger, Sally Swartz: Some think the war between Martin’s careful growth and no-rules growth factions is brutal, but it’s a picnic compared with the cruel pettiness of the board-superintendent battle these last few years. Ms. Gaylord seems confident she can close the open wounds and soothe the scars.

The Aug. 14 primary election changes everything. Board member Laurie Gaylord won the superintendent’s job by a landslide. New board members replace the old guard. Mike DiTerlizzi, a former Martin commissioner, takes Dr. David Anderson’s seat; Rebecca Negron won Ms. Gaylord’s vacated seat with no contest; Marcia Powers and Tony George compete for Sue Hershey’s seat in a Nov. 6 runoff.
