Current Leon County School Board member Alva Swafford Striplin filed on February 1 to run for re-election for Leon County School Board District Seat 1. Striplin first won the seat in 2014 and was subsequently re-elected in 2018.
Striplin told Tallahassee Reports, “Now more than ever, our community needs a voice on the Leon County School Board who will advocate for parents, students and teachers. As a mother of six and former classroom teacher, I will continue to be that voice, ensuring the very best education for all of our children.”
Anthony DeMarco is currently the only challenger in the race for School Board District Seat 1. He filed to run on Jun 23, 2021 and has reported raising $1,210 with 28 donations.
TR has reached out to DeMarco and will include his statement when it is received.
