Alex Stemle has told Tallahassee Reports that he plans to run for the Leon County School Board District 4 seat. The qualifying period for the seat ends on Friday, June 17.
Stemle ran against incumbent Dee Dee Rasmussen in 2020 and lost 60.6% to 39.3%. Early this year, Rasmussen resigned due to health reasons.
During the 2020 race, Stemle tod TR that District 4 needed a new voice.
Stemle said, “Our local schools need a new voice, fresh ideas, and an experienced perspective to address the challenges facing our classrooms and families. My wife Katie and I are proud parents of two boys, 7 and 4, who are just beginning their educational journey in our local schools and I look forward to using my leadership skills to improve our local educational community.”
Stemle will start a new job with Leon County Schools this fall as an Assistant Principal at Godby High School. He was previously the Dean of Students at Deerlake Middle School and earned his Master of Business Administration and Master of Educational Leadership from Florida State University.
Laurie Cox and Susan Hodges have already qualified as candidates for the District 4 seat.
