The Sarasota County School Board selected Caroline Zucker to serve as board chair for the next year during an annual reorganization meeting Tuesday. 

Board members voted 4-1 to approve Zucker as chair, with member Bridget Ziegler voting no. 

"I really believe we are in a time that is incredibly important, and I am very much willing to work with whomever," Ziegler said. "... but I think voting my conscious is something that anyone who is in this position has to do."

Zucker served on the school board from 1992-2000 and again from 2006 to the present. This will be her last year serving on the board as she announced she will not seek re-election. 

Shirley Brown was chosen to serve as  vice chair for the next year with a 3-2 vote. Ziegler and board member Eric Robinson voted no, instead voting in support of  Ziegler’s nominee: Robinson.
