Diyonne McGraw files to run for school board again


Diyonne McGraw, who won her election for School Board District 2 in 2020 and was later removed by Governor DeSantis, has filed to run again in District 2.

McGraw’s home is in a small area that is surrounded by District 2, but it was actually in District 4, and it seems that nobody caught that between her filing and the election. However, the school board has adopted a proposed new map for 2022 that hasn’t been finalized but will likely place McGraw’s address solidly in District 2.

The school board member appointed by Governor Ron DeSantis to fill the vacant seat, Mildred Russell, has also filed to run again.

The deadline to file is June 17, so there is plenty of time for additional candidates to join the various races, but here are the candidates who have filed to run for school board as of today:

District 1: Tina Certain, Daniel Fisher

District 5: Kay Abbitt, Wendy Noon
