LECANTO — Superintendent of Schools Sandra “Sam” Himmel and Republican challenger Sandy Balfour spent much of their forum debating the meaning of success. Here are some highlights:
* Balfour said the district may have a polished look, but trouble lies within.
“There’s a lot going on behind the closed doors,” she said.
Balfour said that, while Citrus has been an “A”-rated district for seven straight years, the state is 46th in the nation.
“We need to aim higher,” she said.
