3 Up for Glynn School Seat


Stepzinski, Teresa, The Florida Times Union


BRUNSWICK -- Three people will square off in the July 21

Republican primary for the District 3B seat on the Glynn County

School Board.

The candidates are Joseph Iannicelli, a 69-year-old

businessman; Robert "Mike" Kennedy, a 42-year-old pipe-fitter,

and Randall "Randy" Smith, a 43-year-old supermarket assistant

manager. All live in Brunswick.

Kennedy is a former school board chairman, while Iannicelli and

Smith are political newcomers.

The primary winner faces Democratic candidate Betty Howard, a

55year-old Brunswick licensed practical nurse, in the Nov. 3

general election.

The district includes the Beverly Shores and Glynco areas of

the county.

Incumbent Carol Trail resigned in May because her family was

moving out of the county.

Here is a look at the Republican candidates:

Iannicelli said he is running because "I was able to get the

best education I could find in the U.S. and I intend to see that

Glynn County children be all they can be."

Iannicelli said his priorities include working to improve

scholastic performance; emphasizing ethics and eliminating

possible conflicts of interest on the board; and making sure the

superintendent and other district administrators are qualified

and competent in their jobs.

Accountability from the superintendent and administrators is

essential to improving the scholastic performance of students,

he said.

If administrators do not have a proven track record of

improving test scores, they should not be hired, Iannicelli

said. And any who fail to produce scholastic improvement should

be replaced, he said.

Iannicelli said he'll also work to prevent ethics violations

and conflicts of interest on the board. He said board members

who have spouses that are school system employees, or receive a

pension or retirement benefits from it, should be prohibited

from voting on the district budget.

Iannicelli also said he'll work to ensure all administrators

are "competent and qualified."

Last month, Iannicelli filed a lawsuit against the board when

the microphone was cut off while he was speaking at a board

meeting. At the time, he was demanding the resignation of

Superintendent David Mosley.

The lawsuit has not been resolved.

Kennedy served on the board from 1993 to 1996, holding both the

vice chairman and chairmanship. He resigned because his family

moved from the district.

If elected, his priorities include working with city and county

government to lower taxes; increasing the number of technical

and college preparatory courses available to high school

students; and working for a standard grading system statewide.

"I just want to help make things better," Kennedy said. "My

main focus is children, and providing more and better

opportunities for them than my generation had."

Noting that 70 percent of the county's tax base is devoted to

education, Kennedy said the school board must unite with city

and county governments to ease that burden on property owners.

They also must ensure that taxpayer money is used efficiently,

he said.

Kennedy said more and expanded technical and collegeprep

courses need to be offered to students at both county high

schools. …
