ORLANDO, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs on Wednesday announced her intentions to run for Orange County School Board chair.
Jacobs says she wants state of the art public schools and to keep students safe.
"Most people don't know that I was appointed by the superintendent to serve on various different committees on his behalf as his delegate. So this idea that schools and the school district and public education is new or foreign to me is far from the truth," she said.
She is running against school board member Nancy Robinson, elementary school teacher Robert Prater, and assistant director of Orange Technical College Matthew Fitzpatrick.
Jacobs, a Republican, cannot seek a third term as county mayor, due to term limits.
