Hillsborough Sheriff Joins Oversight Board for School Tax- Tampa Bay Times
Members of the community continue to show their support for the proposed education tax that will appear on ballots this November. Among these supporters is Sheriff Chad Chronister, a strong advocate for increasing school security. Should the tax win approval, it is expected to raise $131 million a year over 10 years.
Sheriff Chad Chronister has agreed to serve as vice chair of an oversight committee for the proposed half-cent sales tax to benefit the Hillsborough County Public Schools.
The school district announced his selection Monday morning. Betty Castor, who served previously as state education commissioner, senator and president of the University of South Florida, is chairing the seven-member committee.
